Brad Pitt for Chanel:

Charlize Theron for Dior:

What happened to Chanel? And what happened to Brad Pitt? This Chanel #5 ad (top) has to be the worst thing brad has ever done! He looks washed out, rumpled and defeated. Facial fuzz and stringy hair add to the lack of physical appeal. There’s nothing flattering or enticing or sexy about the ad. Compare it to the one that Charlize Theron did (with no expense spared) for Dior. Which scent would YOU buy?

    The once pretty boy is flat worn out. The beauty man-killer wears the pants in this arrangement. Between reports he is upset that she keeps losing weight, not to mention 6 spoiled screaming brats, making movies, world wide travel, it’s no wonder he looks beaten down. In fact, he hardly has time to take a shower or wash and groom his hair. “Live fast, love hard, die young” is the motto of some rich and famous.

    Perhaps he drank the stuff instead of having worn it, that would explain the doped out commercial. Maybe he’s more of a Hi-Karate type of guy?

    This ad is a complete cop out. Is he endorsing the product to raise money for charity? I actually thought he had a bit more integrity about him. Loser!

    he does look exhausted, low concept indeed. I loved those earlier Kidman, Vanessa Paradise, Ridley Scott versions, poetic, layered, sensual. This ad is pale in comparison. Bizarre really.

    Cheesy dialogue. Poor acting. It should end by Brad saying, “Take a pill.”

    1. I’ll bet anything that the money paid to Pitt was more than the production cost of the Theron ad.
    And that includes any licensing fees paid to all the dead celeb’s estates to use their images!

    Way to ruin a brand! I never want to purchase another Chanel Fragrance again.
    Brad Pitt looks like he stinks and can’t act his way out of a paper bag.
    Whoever thought up this ad campaign should be sacked a.s.a.p.

    Brad looks good (not in this, however), but as soon as he opens his mouth, it’s all over for me. Can’t stand his voice. He can’t have done this ad because he needs the cash!

    What a joke. Brad is known for his body odor.
    Poor choice on Chanel’s part,the dialog is hilarious.

    I find this Julia Roberts one for Lancome the worst. Can we say phoning it in?

    Indy, you are so right. The only thing I can add to that is he’s known for not showering on a regular basis, anyway! He always looks dirty and smelly to me.

    What on EARTH is this clown doing earning $ 7 Million for this very ordinary ad? He’s earning more than most Americans earn in their lifetime — for looking scruffy , memorizing about a hundred words, taking a day out of his ‘who gives a shit ‘ life …. this whole nonsense of ‘idol’ worship has gone completely out of hand. SEVEN MILLION? Oh, go fuck off!

    Im one of the few gay men who has never found him appealing…just dont get it.

    It’s all about the money so he, Angie, the kids and a charity can have millions. I like the charity part, but I bet it’s a foundation where he is an officer…Pitt has jumped the shark!

    He’s a good actor, so why is he so NOT good in this commercial? I don’t like it at all.

    he would be better looking if he would cut his hair, he isn’t aging well.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
