Forget sunscreen, Baz Luhrmann says wear Chanel. At least he does in the the latest Chanel No 5 advert that he has directed and that has hit the screens this week. If you have seen the stunning Chanel No 5 commercial featuring the worlds highest paid model, the beautiful Gisele Bundchen, you will know that it features Gisele riding some waves whilst on a Chanel Surfboard, proving that Surf can really be used to sell anything.
Called The One That I Want, the cinematography is breathtaking, and with music more synonymous to the film Grease, the slightly confusing advert plays out a story of a troubled relationship that eventually comes good. Maybe the partnership is in trouble because, like most of us Gisele is spending too much time in the sea! The Surf footage was shot in Fiji and cleverly edited and show’s Giselle carving C shapes into waves!
Gisele is one hundred percent gorgeous in the ad and wears her wetsuit well, as well as showing she is plenty skilful enough on a Surfboard too. For anyone who hasn’t caught up with the Baz Luhrmann Chanel No 5 commercial, you will be able to find it below this article. Do you think it is a good advert, or do you think advertisers and big companies are jumping on the back of Surfing to promote their wares simply because they see Surfing as fashionable?
