Natalie Portman’s baffling new advert

The Academy Award-winning actress has made an advert. We don't altogether understand it.

 

    American-Israeli actress Natalie Portman has appeared in a wide range of creative projects: from the critically-lauded Black Swan to the rather less  well-received Star Wars prequels.

    This advertisement might her most complex and challenging work yet.  In the space of less than a minute she chews her sunglasses, has a nice lie-down in a bed and shouts at somebody.

    We don’t know what it all means. It's clearly an advert for perfume. Or, equally cars, or beach holidays, or edible sunglasses. Or indeed for "love." But whatever they’re selling, we thought you’d like to see it.
