The Internet Reacts To Johnny Depp And Amber Heard’s Dog-Smuggling Apology Video

This morning, (in equal parts delight and horror) we watched Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s forced apology video for bringing two dogs into Australia without the express written consent of, I dunno, someone from Men at Work. It was like the infamous Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice interview, except they’re both Sad Ben Affleck. (I guess Boo and Pistol are Lex Luthor?)

The video was the third act in Depp v Australia: Dawn of Big-Gutted Man.

Depp himself poked fun at the drama during a press conference in Venice, Italy, last year where he was asked if he planned to take the dogs for a gondola ride. “No,” he replied. “I killed my dogs and ate them, under direct orders from some kind of, I don’t know, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia.” (Via)

Australia’s punishment was, all things considered, minor — Heard faced 10 years in prison and a $75,000 fine, but she was given a one-month good behavior bond, which basically means she can’t commit any more crimes in the Land Down Under — so it was up to the Internet to discipline the notorious dog smugglers. To paraphrase famous Australian director George Miller: “What a lovely day… to pretend you’re not being held hostage.”
