LOL did they make the Chanel commerical on PowerPoint or something? It looks cheap, like they didn't have any money to make a decent ad

Brad speaks as Lurch of the Addams family.

Rare are campaigns with the timeline that Chanel Nº5 has, so they need to do always something different each time, and become different instead of the usual line of concept that a perfume has, I think that this ad with Brad is a good way to shift things up and a very original & rare one! It could be better executed but it still reads a fresh approach to the brand DNA maintaining the class and the values behind this fragrance.

Not much of an improvement to me, the editing looks terrible. Why not make use of the millions they paid him and create a new ad instead of the same with sloppy editing. Or just skip Brad Pitt and his journey and just use the model film.

Ugh I saw the commercial on TV today...I'm not sure about the ad.

I mean, okay the lines said by Brad are very philosophical and beautifully-written...but I don't quite get the idea of it. And I don't know, Brad looks so awkward standing there with his hands in the pockets and looking very "wistful"... Even I feel so awkward when watching the commercial.

No doubt Brad is an attractive male, but the commercial itself doesn't provoke my desire to buy the perfume. I wish they used female to be the spokeperson instead. It's just a bit weird for me to see a man selling ladies perfume, sorry.

Brad stands about like the world's best-paid hobo and now there's some CGI women to accompany the sound of his ramblings. Maybe they were real people at some point, but I feel like I'm entering into the world of computer animation, rather than the realm of sophisticated perfume.

WHYYYYY!! first was that movie fore the cruise collection that was (in my opinion) a disaster.. and now this.. Poor Coco I am convinced that Coco Chanel is tossing and turning in her grave in anger and protest to this non-sense of a commercial.. and I truly believe Coco would abhor most of the creative decisions that take place at her company today
