Take one part Brad Pitt, sultry superstar. Add a dose of luxury fragrance Chanel No. 5. Mix both delicious components in a commercial shot by Oscar-nominated director Joe Wright. What do you get?
Let’s start by discussing the original, titled “There You Are.” The black and white ad features Mr. Angelina Jolie, long-maned and bearded, clad in a collared button-down and standing in a corner. Hands in pockets, dignity in the dirt, Pitt proceeds to discuss … nothing in particular. Here’s the text:
“It’s not a journey. Every journey ends but we go on. The world turns and we turn with it. Plans disappear. Dreams take over. But wherever I go, there you are. My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5. Inevitable.”
Before Coco C. could crawl out of her Swiss tomb and say “Huh?” the folks at "SNL" spotted a hit.
In a series of parody videos this weekend, cast member Taran Killam impersonates Pitt, the first male face of the classic women’s scent. Pitt was reportedly paid $7 million for the role.
