Chanel No 5 – Models, singer and song details for the fragrances YouTube and TV commercial.
With lyrics that many of you will recognise, but sung in a very different way, this CHANEL N°5 ad includes a cover of the classic track ‘You’re The One That I Want’.
Originally performed by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in the 1978 film musical Grease, this slowed down and chilled out cover of the song features vocals by the American musician Lo-Fang.
Real name Matthew Jordan Hemerlein, this classically trained singer-songwriter included his unique cover on the 2014 album Blue Film.
Chanel first adopted this distinctive piece of music for their No5 adverts last year, and with Christmas on the way, they’ve recently made a return to our TV screens.
If you’re wondering who the actors in the video are, the woman is 35-year-old Brazilian fashion model and actress Gisele Bündchen, while the man is the 34-year-old Dutch film and TV star Michiel Huisman. Michiel is perhaps best known right now for playing the part of Daario Naharis in Game of Thrones.
With these arty style commercials, it can be easy to sometimes forget what is actually being advertised. N°5 is, of course, a fragrance from the French company Chanel, available in varieties for both men and women.
