The rise of women actors with the wonderful role of Brad Pitt gave the movie business a new lease on life. But since we are dealing with the super-model, as Brad Pitt is, we must also look at the other components of the Brad Pitt persona. In fact, the actor has managed to do this on his own, doing his best to promote a positive image of himself for the general public.
Although his talent speaks for itself, the actor has also managed to capture the public’s imagination and made them feel that he is more than what he appears to be. Some of the incredible publicity stunts are:
– Lives in a mansion. Not only does this property is expensive, it also serves as an additional hotel for his friends and family. He doesn’t live in a typical apartment and instead chooses to live on the top floor of a building in which there is practically no room for error, except for the security guard.
– Says that he has never smoked a cigarette. Yes, he still has an issue with cigarettes and prefers to smoke cigars or hand-rolled smokes.
– Brush his teeth in the bathroom. The fact that he goes to such lengths to make sure that he doesn’t suffer from cavities is admirable. He wants to be known as someone who doesn’t suffer from toothaches and cavities.
– It does not carry any credit cards or debit cards. The actor tries to pass off his identification as being legitimate.
– He is known to learn new skills and become an expert in his field. He has won some famous awards for his acting skills and has worked to keep himself motivated through difficult times.
Now here’s the rub – the next time he tries to market himself, it will be different. He will have to think of ways to do it in a way that makes his self-marketing efforts both less conspicuous and yet workable for him.
In addition to the paid media and social media outlets, Pitt has launched a website, “bradPitt.com”, which may be his most innovative marketing campaign to date. This is the website where you can find articles and pictures about him, share his opinions with others, and get information about his life, travels, and many other things that are meant to let you know who Brad Pitt really is. And if you have questions and concerns about his life, you can ask him through the site.
At the moment, he is giving his fans, even more, media exposure. He has launched his own clothing line, called “The World of Brad Pitt”, which may help raise awareness of his brand as a fashion icon, even as he raises the bar in the other areas of his business. As he has put his creativity and talent on display, it would be quite a surprise if he doesn’t continue to do so, through even more unconventional means of marketing.
Watch out, however, because if he uses this too much, he may become boring. The best he can do is create new ways to promote himself and make people like him even more.
Celebrity is always about perception and Brad Pitt is proving that. It will be interesting to see if he can continue to rise to new heights and if he’ll live up to the high expectations of his fans.
