Conan O'brien Adds a Dose of Weird While Spoofing Brad Pitt Chanel Ad

Ever since Brad Pitt was given the coveted title of the new face for Chanel No.5 Perfumes, there has not been a shortage of parodies coming out to mock the Brad Pitt Chanel ad. This time, it is Conan's turn to poke fun at the campaign.

Chanel has changed its marketing strategy to welcome a more masculine presence to its classically feminine perfume ads by portraying the fragrance as an object of desire from Pitt’s stare. However, from a comedian's standpoint, this ad is pure comic gold. In the video Conan edited, Pitt's usually toned physique has been replaced by a shirtless and doughier figure. Throughout the parody, 'Pitt,' who is now seen topless, is also constantly rubbing his chest, as well as squeezing and cupping his 'man-boobs.'

The combination of the serious intent of the ad mixed with the weird gestures of the faux-Pitt's hands and pudgier figure creates a hilarious parody of the Brad Pitt Chanel ad.
