We sheep feel ripped off. Did the French ask if we sheep ever created such ads prior to the one with Brad Pitt? Have they seen the one with Bertha doing her best Sharon Stone impersonation, wearing nothing more than a sheer duster and high heels? Did they not recognize the come hither look in her eyes, the flare of her nostrils or they way she sashayed around the room, cigarette holder in hand, blowing smoke rings?
The mere way she spritzed herself with the Chanel no 5 should have sent quivers down the backs of any male. The way she batted her very long lashes at the camera, winking and with a coy paw, begging the viewer to come play with her, teasing them with a quick turn, and look back. That is the stuff real ads are made of. Instead, what did they do?
They took one of our idols, Brad Pitt and gave him a no nothing monosyllabic grunt. What the hell was that suppose to be? I am sure Angelina brings more than this out of him in the boudoir. A grunt? Really? They could not afford to at least put his ex in an ad doing her best Mrs. Smith rendition? Or for that matter her scene from Bad Bosses? No drama at all, none. No cat fights of the two women, no tugs of war, the things that perfume can lead to. A grunt about nonsense is all we got?
Sheep are very displeased. Any perfume ad must have drama, or sell sex, and his ad did neither. It makes sheep want to get neutered. Puppy thinks it was done by someone having with drawl symptoms from squash. They didn’t care what it attracted. I am sure Chanel no 5 which we adore, would be unhappy to know it attracts sheep wanting to become neutered after watching that ad. Bertha is spitting mad. She was told she would be the belle du jour for that spot. She was prepared to look into the camera and ask men voulez vous cous chez avec moi?
Just goes to show, you can put a man in a thong but you can’t make him sexy.
