A classic advert

I don't know why, but I always loved that advert of Chanel No. 5. Maybe it is the blend of the great Carole Bouquet into the American icon Marilyn Monroe, maybe it is the song, which I always loved (and from one of my favourite comedies), maybe it is the whole intertext, but anyway I find it classy, funny and genuinely witty. It is much simpler than the overtly pretentious commercial made by Lurhmann. I will probably put the song here soon, as Valentine's Say is coming and all. Until then, you can appreciate French sophistication and American charm simultaneously (for the record, I prefer British charm myself).
