Brad Pitt commercial controversory

While big time movie stars rarely appear in TV ads in the US, anyone who's seen Lost In Translation knows stars can score a big pay day by doing commercials abroad.

That's just what Brad Pitt is doing here, playing a bumbling tourist in this spot for a Japanese mobile phone company.

He pushes a broken down car, is nearly run-over by a group of bicyclists and uses his camera phone to take a picture of... well just watch the video and see.

This adorable spot is apparently a take off of the 1950s French film, Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and was directed by Wes Anderson.

Brad has done several commercials for the Japanese company, and the company spokesperson Naoki Nakayama tells Us magazine: "It is a pleasure to have him as part of the Softbank company, and we look forward to premiering the new commercial, along with our new season of phones, this winter."

We love it!
