Brad Pitt Chanel No 5 Parody: 'Rebels In Paradise' Satirizes Bizarre Perfume Ad (VIDEO)

The top two comments on Brad Pitt's surreal CHANEL N°5 ad are "Nothing he is saying means anything" and "Go home, Brad Pitt, you're drunk." The super-serious black and white ad may not be selling much perfume, but it has inspired a hilarious parody from "Rebels in Paradise," an upcoming art exhibition at Art Basel Miami.

The video contains a scruffy gentleman delivering ridiculous sentence fragments, including our personal favorite: "Mezcal up to my ears... Great art takes over..." The teaser ends with a perfume bottle labeled "Bungalo N°5, Delano Hotel, Miami" — the locale of the upcoming exhibition.

The press release for "Rebels in Paradise" is equally awesome, playing off the overblown language and melodrama that us art writers love to overuse. It begins:

"The skies darken: unsuspecting blue ethers engulfed by mutinous Cumulonimbus rebels. Fiery bodies of fuchsia, magenta, and aubergine hover ominously over Miami Beach. Thirteen clouds prophesizing the celestial tempest."

The exhibition is inspired by the book "Rebels in Paradise: The Los Angeles Art Scene and the 1960s" by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp. Works by Judy Chicago, Peter Alexander, Laddie John Dill and many more will be on view during the art fair, so head to the exhibition's site to view the online catalogue and read the rest of the hilarious description.
