Brad Pitt Smolders in Debut Chanel No. 5 Ad

10/15/2012 at 09:00 AM ET

Brad Pitt is engaged to one of the world’s most beautiful women — and now he’s a smoldering spokesman for one of the world’s most quintessential beauty brands.

Pitt, 48, made his debut Monday in new ads for Chanel No. 5. Dressed casually, hair long and mood thoughtfully seductive, the actor appears in a black-and-white video spot that is a philosophical ode to love and longing.

“It’s not a journey, every journey ends and we go on,” Pitt recites in the 30-second ad for Chanel’s signature fragrance. “Wherever I go, there you are,” he adds quietly, looking directly into the camera in a sensual slow burn.

The ad was shot in London in May and directed by Anna Karenina filmmaker Joe Wright, who had previously worked on Chanel’s 2011 spots for Coco Mademoiselle, featuring actress Keira Knightley.

In promoting Chanel fragrances, Pitt, a father of six, becomes the company’s first-ever male spokesman, and joins a glamorous cast of beauties including Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve and Nicole Kidman. Pitt’s commercial airs globally Monday; print ads combining the star’s portrait and the perfume’s signature bottle debuted on Chanel’s website Sunday evening. Tell us: What do you think of Pitt’s sexy spot? Do you like the idea of a man advertising a women’s fragrance?

Wow PEOPLE. You must have thought the word smoldering actually meant LOW BUDGET. Iron his shirt atleast Chanel GEEZ.

I’ll never understand the fuss with him. He’s a nice looking man, sure. In a ‘guy next door’ sense. I’ve never understood the hysteria.

So embarrassingly tacky and wooden. This makes me cringe for the editors of his oh so serious movies. He has terrible line delivery. When I think of chanel, I think class, when I think Brad pitt, I think trash.

Marilyn Monroe was never a spokesperson, all she did was saying that she was wearing Chanel no 5 to bed. I just don’t understand Brad Pitt for Chanel no 5, seriously?! Waste of money

Sunny on

Yeah, I agree with the person that said Daniel Craig as bond should have been the first male for chanel. Brad’s ad is a serious flop. Do over with Bond, please.
