Brad Pitt made history as the first man to promote Chanel No. 5 perfume. But he may live to regret it. The commercial is becoming fodder for a growing number of parodies. “Saturday Night Live” had a field day with it’s own takes on the spot.

Pitt, that is a Brad Pitt look-alike Taran Killam, who plays the actor to a tee, hawks everything from Dr. Jonathan Zizmor’s tattoo removal to condoms and tacos.

Conan O’Brien also weighed in with a hilarious parody on his show last week.

Pitt, 48, was reportedly paid $7 million to become the first man in chanel’s 91-year history to hawk the perfume. He follows such sultry contemporaries as Keira Knightley, Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet.

The black-and-white video shows Pitt wearing a long-sleeve shirt opened one or two buttons at the collar. He looks like a cross between Grizzly Adams and an 8th Avenue crackhead, something SNL’s writers also picked up on. In one spot, Pitt (Killam) questions why he looks homeless.

The spot for Dr. Zizmor has an added edge. The tattoo examples that Pitt mentions were once sported by his life partner Angelina Jolie, including a “cross that says you’re a slut.”

Even a befuddled Pitt questions the meaning of the ad by questioning the dialogue. “I’m sorry is there really now script? I’ve been talking to myself for two hours and I’m starting to sound insane.”

Is it me or do I look super homeless? That’s what you want? Rock ‘n roll,” he adds.
