Cringe. This is just embarrassing to watch. They can't dump this ad soon enough for me.

He got paid $4million FOR THAT? I would have done it for half the price and far better than he did...

This is so lackluster, he looks a mess, he's the total opposite to Chanel, that Hair bugs me and so does the facial hair, had he done this back when he did the Oceans trilogy I would have welcome it, but now? no.

I do usually like Sam Taylor Wood but this is just lazy... I think they overlooked how amazing previous campaigns for this have been *cough* Nicole Kidman *cough*... sorry but it's true.

Seeing as his latest cover/editorial in Interview Magazine seems to be his greatest acting to date, doing a full on monologue piece like this was a bad move

I rather they choose Justin Bieber or anyone in One Direction. This is so wrong.

Of course, they're paraphrasing one of the best commercials ever made:

Catherine Deneuve (I think David Bailey was the photographer).

This is a terrible error.

And as wonderful as Deneuve undeniably is, after seeing Brad's efforts, I feel they should ban anyone from talking in perfume ads.

I just really don't see why Brad was chosen. I didn't see it when it was first announced and I don't see it now.

This ad gives takes vacuous to a whole new level. And i thought the one for Coco was vapid enough, clearly I was wrong.
And the amount of money he got paid for this is simply obscene, he should be ashamed.

And the sad thing was that he was paid a ridiculous amount of money to do this.

^Oh god...that would be absolutely fantastic! It would make this whole debacle worth it. I mean, imagine Taran Killam parodying this ad, it could be really great.

is anyone else bothered by the way he pronounces 'with it'? i feel like he's spitting right into my face when listening to it.

other than that, i like the idea of using a man for the ad, but this is just so wrong. i don't know if the text is so cheesy that not even the greatest actor in the world could have made it work or if brad is just one of the worst actors in the world.
i never followed his career closely, but i'm shocked about how poorly executed this ad is acting wise.
second hand embarrassment.
