Twitter has been a-buzz all week since the eight second audio clip of Brad Pitt for Chanel No. 5 ($120.00) was released. Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived with the full video, featuring the four-time Oscar-nominated actor in black & white, reciting an obscure monologue entitled “There You Are.” Directed by the Anna Karenina-helmed visionary, Joe Wright, Brad’s $7 million ad has certainly paid off since this is first time a male spokesmodel has endorsed anything for Chanel. Brad’s face & voice join the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, & most recently Keira Knightley (see Coco Mademoiselle here) who have all fronted the brand in the past.
What do you think of the ad? Is Brad Pitt a good fit for Chanel? Would you like to have seen something different for such an iconic fragrance?
