Brad Pitt a Good Sport After Getting Panned for Chanel Ad [Video]

CHANEL PICKED Pitt to represent “the perspective of a man on the most feminine fragrance of all time.”

What he didn’t bargain for are the reviews.

“I’ve been overseas, so I’ve been blissfully protected [from the backlash],” Pitt said. “I haven’t [seen the parodies], but I say absolutely fair play, fair play.” [Huffington Post]

If talking about an ad sells a fragrance Chanel No. 5 should see skyrocketing sales.

The $7 million figure reportedly paid to Pitt isn’t anything to ignore, even for a movie star millionaire.

Chanel No. 5 has been around for a long time. Brad Pitt not only gets Chanel attention, but certainly doesn’t hurt their brand, which he modernizes.

I’d much rather see Pitt coming off a field, walking past a woman and being drawn to the scent that happens to be Chanel No. 5, as he’s seen sweaty and exhausted from amateur athletics. Maybe he can convince his gorgeous fiancé Angelina Jolie to play the part of the woman, as he asks her what perfume she’s wearing.

Fat chance.

But what I’m waiting for is Pitt’s next movie, with the previews of Killing Them Softly, an adaptation of George V. Higgins’s 1974 novel Cogan’s Trade, spectacular and highly humorous. A bonus is that one of my favorite character actors (and former soap star) Ray Liotta is also in the film, as is James Gandolfini and Richard Jenkins, who always delivers.

    It’s a rare perfume commercial that isn’t begging to be mocked roundly and often. Pitt should be glad he was out of the country when his surfaced, assuming that wasn’t a deliberate choice on his part.

    Liotta and Gandolfini are usually terrific. Can’t recall Richard Jenkins. Sounds like a good movie, even given what I do know.
