'SNL' Makes Brad Pitt's Hilariously Bad Chanel No. 5 Ad Even Funnier (VIDEO)


We were wondering how Saturday Night Live would spoof Brad Pitt's unintentionally (?) hilarious Chanel No. 5 ad and the one they came up with is totally SNL worthy. Taran Killam, looking very Brad Pitt-ish, stares forlornly into the camera, reciting Brad's actual mumbo-jumbo from the Chanel ad. That in and of itself is pretty funny. But then he starts asking the questions we all wanted to ask when we first saw this commerical. I mean, besides, "Brad, did you really need the money that badly?"

Taran has Brad's voice down pat as he burns a hole in the camera with his bedroom eyes while lamenting that, "This is not a journey ... every journey ends, but we go on ... " Mmm ... okaaay. But then, unlike Brad, Taran stops and sensibly asks, "I'm sorry -- is there really no script? 'Cause I've been talking to myself for like two hours straight and I'm starting to sound insane."

Agreed. What the heck was Brad thinking with this ad? Was he sleep-deprived from six kids? Did he truly think this was "art"? Maybe we need to cut Brad some slack. Sending six kids to college isn't going to be cheap and I'm sure the rumored $7 million he got for his ramblings will come in handy.

Back to the spoof. Taran voices what everyone who saw the Brad Pitt ad was thinking, saying, "What? You want me to sound less coherent? Really? Okay, I can just start making up words?"

Taran also takes a dig at Brad's less-than-polished style, asking, "Is it just me or do I look super homeless?" He ends with: "Chanel No. 5 ... in-under-stand-ublllle."

I watched the SNL spoof and the real ad back-to-back, and I'm not sure which one I laughed at more. Okay, it was Brad's ad. Honestly, you really can't get funnier than that. But SNL came close. Take a look. When you stop laughing, tell us what you think possessed Brad to do such a godawful ad?

I can't even watch it.  I've tried and keep having to change the channel.  Maybe its because I had a crush on him way back when he was known only as the hot cowboy from Thelma and Louise.  I feel so embarrassed for him I feel my face turn red and I have to change the channel.  I knew SN would spoof this, how could they resist?

Brad laughing all the way to the bank! Heck i will make an azz outta myself for 50 grands! If they offered me 7 million, i probably would have done it naked.

I saw it on Chelsea Handler show and laughed my butt off. Maybe it was Chelsea's face but it was hilarious. I can't believe he thought this was a cool clip. Its not like he needs the money. How embarrassing.

I guess Brad is not aware of this little thing called the internet - the crap y'all do in other countries is now available for us to watch and mock.  But yeah, like hopealways said, he's laughing all the way to the bank.

Still haven't seen the SNL spoof (can't seem to get it to come up).but it's suppose to be on GMA so maybe I'll see it then. As for Brad's ad, I was in shock! What the hell?!! I still don't understand what all that gibberish has to do with my fav, Chanel no5.
