Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's 'atrocious' apology video mocked by Australian deputy prime minister
If there's one thing we've learned from this whole Johnny Depp-Amber Heard debacle, it's that Australia truly does have a treasure trove of warm and direct people.
The couple starred in a 42-second video for the Australian government, publicly apologizing for breaking the country's biosecurity laws. Mostly, the only thing you'll take from the video is that it's awwwwwwwwkward. Even the prime minister thinks so.
"I think he's auditioning for The Godfather," Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce joked of Depp during an appearance on Sunrise on Tuesday. "He's very good at playing every person except Johnny Depp."
The apology comes after Heard pleaded guilty in court to illegally bringing her Yorkshire Terriers, Pistol and Boo, into the country and making a false statement on her immigration card. She avoided a 10-year prison sentence and up to $265,000 worth of fines, instead receiving a one-month good behavior bond and no conviction.
"As far as me directing that atrocious movie? No," Joyce continued. "Even I could have done it a little bit better than that. 'Do it again, Johnny. Do it with gusto, mate! A little gusto, come on.'"
Meanwhile, people have been having a field day with the clip, because, as Ricky Gervais may have put it best, "The Johnny Depp apology feels like a hostage video."
Stephen Colbert issued his own apology to Australia on The Late Show with a spot-on Depp impression, complete with Pirates of the Caribbean hat and didgeridoo performance.
Jimmy Kimmel tried to lighten the somber tone of the video with some Snapchat filters.
And comedian Natalie of @communitychannel had a viral success of her own with a "Making Of" video that reveals who was on the other side of the camera.
ET recently caught up with Heard, who opened up about her excitement over turning 30 and why her privacy is so precious. Find out what she had to say in the video below.
