Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 ad


Brad Pitt has been paid $7 million (£4.3 million) to be the new - and first male - face of iconic fragrance Chanel No. 5...but is he worth it?

Styled in a creased shirt and sporting a manicured goatee and swept back hair, the Hollyood megastar keeps his hands stuffed in his pockets as he glances around a softly lit room, delivering a smoothly spoken monologue about...well, we're not too sure...

"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."

Watch Brad's smooth delivery in the 30-second ad, below:
