Brad Pitt's Chanel ad debuts

Brad Pitt's commercial for classic scent Chanel N°5 has been shown for the first time in full length today.

The American hunk appears in a new campaign for the iconic fragrance, which was favoured by sultry Marilyn Monroe.

Chanel released a series of eight teaser clips of the video, but the full advert has now debuted. Brad appears sultry in the footage, wearing a buttoned down shirt and his long hair loose.

The atmospheric commercial is shot in black and white, with Brad musing: "The world turns and we turn with it... but wherever I go; there you are."

The actor has explained what drew him to becoming the new face of the luxury scent.

"What's important to remember about Chanel N°5 is how revolutionary this fragrance is. When it was introduced, it broke all the rules by discarding meaningless ornamentation for an honest and open aesthetic, and a scent which embodies liberation from trend, creating a fragrance which remains as modern today as it was during its inception," the 48-year-old expressed in a statement.

"Chanel N°5 has always been the most iconic women's fragrance. The beauty of its success for all these years is both elegantly simple and complex at the same time. That's what I see being the appeal of this campaign; it goes beyond the abstract of emotion or beauty to evoke what is timeless, a woman's spirit."

Director Joe Wright, creator of Keira Knightley movie Anna Karenina, shot the full commercial.

Brad is the first male to endorse the scent, with previous spokespeople including Nicole Kidman.
