Brad Pitt calls Chanel ad parodies ‘fair play’

Actor has been mocked for his Chanel No 5 ad

Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has called the many parodies of his Chanel No.5 advert 'fair play', but admits he hasn't seen any them.

Brad Pitt's appointment as the first male face of Chanel No.5 - the French fashion house's signature fragrance - has caused quite a stir, and not in an entirely good way.

The moody black-and-white ad has been spoofed numerous times on US television and called, amongst other things, "atrocious" and a "disaster". But it seems it's all water off a duck's back to Pitt.

"I've been overseas, so I've been blissfully protected," the 48-year-old actor told Access Hollywood when asked about public reaction to the campaign. "I haven't [seen the parodies], but I say absolutely fair play, fair play."

He also said he "kind of liked" the finished advert (woah there Brad, calm down ), and that he respects what Chanel do, or as he eloquently put it: "They do some really quality things."

We're glad Brad was "blissfully protected", but somehow we don't think it was being overseas that did it (we're pretty sure they have television/ newspapers/ internet there), but the £4.32 million paycheck cushioning him from the comic backlash
