Super Bowl Commercial Week: Brad Pitt Ditches the Paparazzi (and Jennifer Aniston) on a Beer Run


Despite opposing claims from TMZ, celebrities are actually nothing like us.

Take, for example, this 2005 Heineken commercial starring a beer-thirsty Brad Pitt. In it, the star uses some stealth techniques to avoid the legions of photographers who capture his every move. The ad ran on the heels of Pitt’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith wife drop film release, just weeks before he gave then-spouse Jennifer Aniston the boot for Angelina Jolie.

What made the short spot all the more ridiculous is Pitt’s post-paparazzi phone call, presumably to an equally smug badass lady, asking her to come up and see him sometime. If there were ever a place to seek an answer as to why Aniston has been perennially cast as the saddest woman in Hollywood, it’s here.

Oh yea, The New England Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles that year in a close game, 24 – 21.

Also worth mentioning, Aniston starred in her own beer commercial for Heineken. The Dutch clip didn’t run in the United States, but maybe one of Jolie’s kids has seen it.
