What Does Brad Pitt Think of the Parodies of His Chanel No. 5 Commercial?

11/27/2012 at 11:00 AM ET

Saturday Night Live spoofed him. Several times. Heck, even dogs did it. But Brad Pitt still stands by his not-so-popular Chanel No. 5 commercial.

“I kind of liked it,” he told Access Hollywood on Monday. “I respect what [Chanel does]. They do some really quality things.”

However, he also respects the people who’ve made fun of it.

“I haven’t [seen the parodies],” he added, “but I say absolutely fair play.”

Yep — the man who made millions off the trippy 30-second spot hasn’t had the chance to catch SNL on Hulu yet. “I’ve been overseas,” he shared, “so I’ve been blissfully protected.”

But that’s not to say he won’t have a chuckle eventually; he told Extra he would probably watch the SNL spoofs (starring Taran Killam) when he wasn’t working so much. And we’ll look forward to hearing his reaction. Tell us: Are you still not so into the Chanel No. 5 ads?

Nobody could top when Nicole Kidman was the spokesmodel for Chanel No. 5. Not sure what they were thinking to go from that to Brad Pitt! Maybe a shave would have helped…

Horrible!! What were they thinking?!

pretentious and nonsensical

Taran’s parodie was really funny.

I think companies ALWAYS overloads it in their commercials. LEVI jeans does it all the time, like a pair of pants will change your life. Or drinking Dr. Pepper will enlighten your life. I absolutely cringe at these commercials!

Those ads make me want to stop wearing Chanel No. 5. They are truly horrendous.

What did Nicole Kidman did for Chanel No.5. I am sure nobody would be able to replace- definitively best of all

Mona on

I think it is wonderful & different.
Thanks People Magazine.

He hasn’t actually seen any of the parodies (as this article states) so this “story” is kinda pointless.

Of course he liked it. That’s who he is a cheesy idiot. He is completely overexposed ATM. I would love to go a year without ever hearing or seeing this guy.
