Now this is the kind of advertising pushing me off the economy edge right into the store! I’m not a fan of Chanel No.5 (or at least not yet) but I’m definitely a fan of Audrey Tautou’s ad for the legendary perfume!
Billie Holliday’s I’m a fool to want you brings such a nostalgic, tragic air to Jean Pierre Jeunet’s short film that the ad looks like 100% romance on film. Of course there’s the same one-night-stand affair theme that has been bugging the Kaiser for some time now, but then there’s something else… That feeling of eternal love, transported through time and space, an eternity-long romance making the hearts melt, the pockets empty and the Chanel No.5 legend go on, and on… and on… Wouldn’t you go out and buy that loving feeling? (there’s a shorter version of the ad you can watch here and you can listen to Billie Holiday performing Sinatra’s I’m a fool to want you here)
