A-MEN: Official Website and Video Launch (...and the Brad Pitt for Chanel ad)

@Sam-Taylor Woods for Chanel

Today we launch officially A-Men website on YouTube and in the world. 

 

You can watch our movie presentation above, on our home page or on our YouTube channel.  

 

And, by pure chance, just yesterday the news of Brad Pitt (one of our A-Men icons) as the new face of Chanel N. 5 came out.

 

It is a bit of a shocking news indeed...

 

One of our A-men representatives and the great character of "Fight Club", now sponsoring a Women's fragrance (or, better to say, THE women's fragarance)...  

 

Chanel's headquarter and press say that Brad Pitt is the first man in history to represent a women's fragrance, thanks to Chanel's dedication to break with tradition. Brad Pitt was "an obvious choice," the brand explains. "There is no actor alive that compares with Brad Pitt, whose talent, popularity and looks are legendary, in the same way that no other perfume compares with Chanel No. 5, which was created by Ernest Beaux."  

 

As A-MEN, we have a bit of perplexity here anyway... 

 

The ad, previewed by Relaxnews, is shot in black and white by British director Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna), whose previous gigs include two campaigns for Coco Mademoiselle. It features a minimalist background that contrasts sharply with the opulent decors seen in the previous films for Chanel No. 5. Brad Pitt stands in front of a bare wall and recites a poem that seems to be adressed to a woman.

 

The minimalist decor serves to highlight the A-lister's voice, which Joe Wright describes as "magnificent." With this groundbreaking campaign, Chanel hopes to channel Pitt's charisma and heartfelt delivery to stir viewers. The photographs documenting the shooting of the campaign are from Sam Taylor-Wood, while the forthcoming print campaign's pictures were taken by Steven Klein. 

 

Well, the ad might look good, still we think Brad Pitt is worth more than that... And the renewed image of our Brad can help selling more fragrances, but next time, maybe, let's skip the minimalistic and very sensitive presentation. 

 

So, please, give us back "Fight Club"!!! 

 



 

Funny enough, after few days from the official release of this ad, Chanel released a second video (that you find further below) with some FEMALE presence in it. 

 

Maybe the criticisms were worth this time. 

 

And Brad Pitt looks more connected with the product this way. 

 

Still, we want the "Fight Club" heritage back!

    The only movie i have seen brad pitt in was fight club . and i loved it! He did a very good job in my opinion. I hvanet seen his other films though . As far as dicaprio goes, i hvanet been a huge fan
    but with the departed and blood diamond out(which he both stars in) has changed my perspective. I think having them will make a very interesting film. As will micheal madsen and that other guy in
    resevoir dogs,pulp fiction, and the new incredible hulk movie. I think he should put in that black army dude from dusks till dawn! Lmfao, that would be hilarious. But then again . the time frame is
    set awhile back so maybe a distant relative of his or something

  • Viral (Thursday, December 18 14 02:35 am GMT)

    Hey lady, Im going to be honest with you, this is the first time that Im conmig into your blog, sorry about that, Im not into blogs very much, but I read it and I love what you do. I will be consice
    and speak from the heart. Im traveling to England for the very first time in my life, I wanted this so badly since I can remember, but money was always an issue for me, I am from Ecuador and the
    first time that I tried to go was when I was living in Argentina in 2009, I applied for an scholarship to study in Westminster but I was denied, so I applied again in 2010 but, gues what? denied
    again so I got tired of trying to go as a student and then found a job where I can travel, so I got one, a photographer in a cruise ship, so I was asking for a ship to go to Europe and England, but
    guess again? didn\'t have one, so its been a year that Im on ships just doing the caribbean, bermuda and the States, oh no! I am not complaining, thanx to this job I met so many places and people and
    I feel in love as well, but that is for a different story, so I finish working in the cruise ship in march and came back to Ecuador and finally applying for a visa to the UK, and I was granted one!!!
    image my joy, but then I realize that the money I had washb4t enough, so Im stuck in my country trying to do everything that I can to collect the money to go to England. Right now I have a lot of
    stress since I donb4t know if I will make it in time or not. I forgot to mention that one of the main reasons that I want to go is because i love English music, and particularly the band named KEANE
    so since 2004 I imagine going to a concert in their country, maybe it sounds weird, but I think life is all about creepy, doing things that nobody else understands but deep down in your heart, you
    do, you feel that is the right choice.A lot of people have told me to wait another year and trying to go with more money, maybe they are right, but I know I have to be there this summer, why it has
    been so complicated for me, and so easy for other people?. money counts, yes!, visa counts because is not like I can travel all around the globe with my nationality, but most important, DREAMS
    counts, dreams becoming true, so one day I go back and said, I had a dream, to go to London, and walking near Picadilly Circus, taking pictures in Abbey Road, going to that summer festival in Hyde
    Park, learning that culture that I always though is part of me.Well that is me, you will see I have a passion for photography and traveling, would you help this crazy lady with a nice dream becoming
    true? be my fairy .p.d.: this is the link of the au pair profile that I create to find jobs in London, so its all true.Besos.
