I'll admit the moment I read the buzz that Robert Pattinson could be named Dior's new fragrance spokesperson, I immediately thought: Here's hoping for a Brad Pitt repeat.
If you haven't had the chance to see Pitt's Chanel No. 5 commercial, in which the actor bizarrely waxes on about life and love (I think, it's hard to tell) -- no need. All you really need to see is the hilarious spoof Saturday Night Live did, or perhaps the dog interpretation video, which went viral.
My point is that when a celebrity endorses a product, they've got to walk a fine line of cheesy and classy. And when the celeb takes himself too seriously, it's pop culture gold (thank you, Mr. Pitt).
Look, Pattinson has had a tough year, what with the whole girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) cheating on him and all. So if anyone needs some positive buzz, it's him. But is it just me, or could you see Pattinson getting talked into doing some kind of Old Spice rip off (vampires included) or a retro romance short with a one-word finish ("Innocence," "Seduction," "Power," take your pick)?
I'm not necessarily hoping for either, but if it happens, I'll be itching to see what the Internet comes up with in response.
What do you think? Will Robert Pattinson pull a Brad Pitt?
