What do you think, ladies? Is there really a need for a man’s face (although) gorgeous to keep up sales for the legendary perfume? I think we should keep Marylin Monroe, she’s the icon of No. 5 after all.

the hook: on brands and media

Brad Pitt is now hawking Chanel No. 5.

Just let that sink in for a moment.

If you missed the monologue because you were too occupied staring at a pretty man in dire need of a haircut, here it is:

It’s not a journey.
Every journey ends, but we go on.
The world turns and we turn with it.
Plans disappear, dreams take over,
But wherever I go, there you are.
My luck, my fate, my fortune
Chanel No. 5

So that’s nonsense, essentially. And I find it a little strange coming from a man.

That being said, the ladies love them some Brad; so the chances this commercial flops aren’t great. For me, however, the ad (teased by industry publications for some time) fell flat. And if I were to do the casting, I would go in another direction.

Chanel No. 5 is the ultimate in women’s fragrance…

A little bit of Barefoot in my glass

18 Oct

Hello my lovely ladies! And happy hump day, aka Wine Wednesday!

For today’s fine I though I’d feature a longtime favorite, Mr. Barefoot. Yes, it’s a cheap wine, but the brand’s pinot grigio is up there with the best of them. It’s light and crisp with fruity notes, and can be served as an aperitif or with meals such as chicken or seafood. Or just share a bottle with a friend for one of those intimate convoes. I seriously love this wine, so give it a try.

What is YOUR favorite wine?

Hi, I can be your new best friend!
