Not Even The Director Of Brad Pitt’s Chanel Ads Understood Them


Rest assured you’re not alone in your confusion over what Brad Pitt means when he intones, “It’s not a journey, every journey ends and we go on” in those Chanel No. 5 commercials.

Even director Joe Wright was reportedly a little perplexed by the monologue, which, while ostensibly an ode to the perfume, pretty much amounted to some very mockable ramblings delivered by a handsome, yet disheveled man.

Vulture caught up with SNL‘s Taran Killam, who took on the role of Pitt in the show’s spot-on parody, and he recalled a recent encounter with Wright:

“When we spoke, he had yet to see the spoofs, but I think he had been surrounded by enough people who were like, ‘They’re good, they’re good, they’re good,’ so he was a good sport.”

“He was very gracious, and he said, ‘I didn’t actually know what they were about either,’ because it’s just his job to show up, and he’s given the copy.”

Good to know we’re all on the same page here.
