Watch: Jessica Biel and Pharrell Williams in new ad by 'Black Swan' director
Monday 06 June 2011
After Martin Scorsese's ad for Chanel and David Lynch's commercial for Dior, Hollywood's directing A-list takes on beauty brand Revlon.
For a newly released one-minute ad for its Grow Luscious Plumping mascara, Black Swan's Darren Aronofsky enlisted actress Jessica Biel and musician Pharrell Williams to play a glamorous couple set against a luxurious black-and-white surrounding.
Biel can be seen getting ready to go out at a vanity, applying the mascara, while Williams arrives to pick her up. Enchanted by her look, he performs "You Got Me," a track written for the commercial, whose lyrics read: "You look at me, you blink those eyes, you plump them up, I'm hypnotized."
There seems to be a trend of musicians incorporating their music into beauty ads: just recently, singer Gwen Stefani included her "Luxurious" lyrics in her ad for L'Oréal's Superior Preference hair color.
