    I must’ve been living under a rock, because this ad has been out for over 3 years and I saw it for the first time today.

    I know that is the Edward Scissorhands Main Title, but the choir sounds different, like they overimposed adult female voices over the children ones.

    Does any of you know who directed it?

    Nevermind, I just found out Luc Besson directed it.

    Steve Bartek arranged it, by the way. That’s what it says on his official website, under the subheading “film”.

    This question has been answered many, many times before (so I’m making this thread a sticky for the Christmas season). The recording (“Main Title/Ice Dance”) is from Silva Screen’s CINEMA CHORAL CLASSICS II album. The City of Prague Philharmonic performs with the Crouch End Festival Chorus.

    Ryan, do you say this of your own knowledge (i.e. from listening to the music in the ad) or were you passed the info? Your own site contains only two references to it that I can find (ah, Google, how do I love thee, let me count the ways…), both are “news” items – the first says “Is that Danny Elfman’s music in the new Chanel No.5 ad? The commercial, directed by Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) which shows a lady dressed up as little red riding hood and a howling black wolf uses actual cues from Danny Elfman’s EDWARD SCISSORHANDS score – however they are not the same performance of the music used in the film or on the OST. Information and awareness of this commercial is slowing growing and more news when it happens!” and the second says: “An email tip from a MFADP visitor pointed out that the performance of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS used in the Chanel No.5 ads sounded alot like the one on the Silva compilation album CINEMA CHORAL CLASSICS II.” I cannot find a message board item that confirms this so I do not know who passed this info on. Did you ever get to confirm that it is indeed the case that Bartek’s arrangement for the ad is the same as what appeared on the CD? Same performance also? The CD track contains quite a lot of music, not the half minute that a normal advert might contain, so if it comes from the Silva Screen disc, it must have been heavily edited – or else the score was arranged and clipped by Bartek and performed by a different orchestra.

    Did that make sense? It would be nice to get this concrete and crystal clear once and for all!

    Just wanted to say that if anyone is interested in the ad, just shoot me an e-mail and I’ll be glad to send it to you.

    Why oh why didn’t you just say that?!! :o) Now I don’t have to bother pestering Ryan. And I can confirm for myself exactly what the music is etc etc as posted heretofore yadayada helpmeobiwankenobeyou’remyonlyhope. One problem though: I can’t remember or do not have your e-mail address. Mine’s at http://www.bluntinstrument.org.uk/elfman/layout/em.htm, if that’s any use. Sorry to Ryan for clogging up his board. Probably won’t be the last time. Hey, maybe if I make a derogatory comment about Elfman’s private life he’ll have an excuse to strip out the whole thread? That’d save me some face!

    Hey Blunt,

    I just tried to e-mail you the thing, but turns out that Yahoo won’t let me attach a file bigger than 10MB [this ad is 21MB] so I don’t know what to do.

    Maybe I could send it to you through MSN Messenger or AIM or something like that or maybe someone that knows a little more about computer stuff could tell me how to compress the file.

    Hows about I PAY you to send me a CDR of it? I really am that tired of getting all my information second-hand. E-mail me and I’m sure we can come to an arrangement. Sorry, but I gave up on instant messaging a while back, and I very much doubt my home internet connection could stand even a 1 MB download (I was planning on checking my e-mail at work), so I’m stumped electronically unless you can record the sound, ruthlessly encode to mp3 and then try sending again. Or unless you found the advert on a website that I could visit too.

    As I said, Yahoo wont let me attach a file bigger than 10MB, sorry.

    If only someone would host it. I have no webspace and don’t know how to do it. Anyone willing to help? D-Bo?

    I’ve been looking for free/cheap webspace everywhere, D-Bo. What’s the secret to your success?

    Heehee, my school! Every student has access to a free 200 megabytes. It’s awesome.

    Ah, all is explained. That’s how Yak got by with his no-advert site. I really should go back to studying. You get free PCs, free webspace, cheap(ish) accomodation, cheaper access to things, tax breaks… hey, throw in a limo and I’ll be off!
