Nicole Kidman's Chanel Commerical

Have you seen the new Chanel commercial starring Nicole Kidman? It's fantastic, and yet thoroughly bizarre all at the same time. Baz Luhrmann directed this commercial and you can totally tell - before I knew that he directed it, I thought "Wow, this looks so much like Moulin Rouge!" Nicole looks fabulous, as does her super hot co-star, but it's just so weird. It's more of a mini-movie with a lot of product placement than an actual commercial. There's a three-minute version, but I've only seen the 1-minute cut. Look for it - it's visually spectacular (spectacular!) but a little too avant garde for me.

I've seen this - it's beautiful! More movie directors should do commercials like this. Not the hacks that try to sell me Doritos at 2am.

I really didn't like this commercial. I was totally confused and had no clue what was going on.

I totally thought it WAS Moulin Rouge for a sec. I mean, aren't they on that huge elephant in one part?

My reaction was a little different. What I thought when I first saw this commercial was how many times I was going to have to hear people talking about whether it is an artistically rendered commercial or a commercially rendered art form.

p.s. I work in an English Dept.
