Eau la la!
Named Chanel's first-ever male spokesperson, Brad Pittmade women swoon in a sensual commercial touting the brand's luxe Chanel No. 5 fragrance, and just days after the ad's release, Pitt's performance has gotten the Saturday Night Live treatment.
Parodied by Taran Killam in a two-part digital short Saturday, Pitt's Chanel No. 5 commercial was mocked for its lengthy ode to love. "It's not a journey. Every journey ends and we go on," Angelina Jolie's fiance Pitt, 48, a father of six, said in the original ad. "The world turns and we turn with it," he continued. "Plans disappear, dreams take over. But wherever I go, there you are. My luck, my fate, my fortune."
"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," said Killam, 30, in the SNL skit. "You want me to sound less coherent? OK -- I can just start making up words."
As Killam channeled Pitt and started making up words, he then asked crew members if his appearance was up to snuff. "Is it me, or do I look super homeless?" the comic wondered. "That's what you want? Rock 'n' roll!"
"Chanel No. 5 -- inunderstandable!" joked Killam in closing.
