Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 ad parodied on 'Saturday Night Live' - See videos

10/21/2012 by Kristina Lopez

Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 commercial was parodied on "Saturday Night Live" not once, but four times on October 20.

The comedy sketch show featured cast member Taran Killam as the movie star. Pitt was seen in his first ad for perfume campaign last week reciting poetry. The first parody on "Saturday Night Live" has Killam's Pitt complaining about the commercial lacking a script and saying the company just wants him to make up words.

"I'm sorry is there really no script? I've been talking to myself for two hours and I'm starting to sound insane," Killam says.

In the other parodies, Killam is seen as Pitt in ads stylized as the Chanel ads, but the videos end up as commercials for other products and services like Taco Bell and tattoo removal.

Pitt was recently named as the first male spokesmodel for Chanel No. 5, the iconic fragrance whose past advertising campaigns have been lead by female icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Nicole Kidman.

Pitt's ad campaign for Chanel No. 5 was directed by Joe Wright, who helmed movies such as "Pride and Prejudice," "Atonement" and "Anna Karenina," all of which star actress and Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle perfumes spokesmodel Keira Knightley.

The October 20 episode of "Saturday Night Live" was hosted by singer Bruno Mars, who also appeared on the program as the musical guest. During the show, Mars dressed up as a woman and acted like an intern at Pandora while impersonating famous singers like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson.

Check out all four parodies of Brad Pitt's ad -- as well as the commercial for Chanel No. 5 featuring Pitt -- below. (Warning: The third video contains explicit language.)
