A few weeks ago I was at a local watering hole having a the special, half-slab rib dinner and a pint of local brew. A few feet over at the end of the bar a tall, striking, blonde woman was asking the bartender questions out of a magazine questionnaire. Things like, “what is your favorite dish?” and “if you could go anywhere, where would it be, and why?” As she flipped through the pages I saw Brad Pitt’s ageless face in an ad. It was for Chanel No. 5.
“Is that [bleepy] [bleeping] Brad Pitt?” I asked in a high pitched inquiry.
“Yea, kinda weird huh?” the woman answered.
It was weird. ‘What the [bleepity] [bleep] does Brad Pitt have anything to do with Chanel No. 5?’ I thought out loud to my self. I shook my head and finished my dinner. I went on. The world turned.
Then I see this. A TV commercial for Chanel No. 5 featuring the man himself, the always alluring Bradley Pitt. Wherever I went, there he was. What could he possibly [bleeping] say to make me understand why he’s getting paid $7 million to do ads for Chanel No. 5? Then he said it. My luck.
Brad is right you guys. It’s not a journey. Just an enchanting array of words, whispered by a man no woman nor man can resist. Delivered with conviction. Mysterious. Charming. Nonsensical.
Side note: If Chanel came out with a No. 6 that’s what they should call it, Nonsensical (I’d buy it, real talk).
