French actor Gerard Depardieu recently released a video that not only sought promote his new Obelix movie but also made light of his recent run in with the authorities when he peed inside a commercial plane. If that’s not clear to you – he peed in the plane but not in the bathroom. Yes, it’s gross even for a Frenchman (I kid, I kid).
According to reports, the plane was heading to Dublin from Paris. Depardieu, who witnesses say was visibly drunk, wanted to take a pee but a flight attendant told him that he can only use the bathroom after the plane takes off. Bad call. What Depardieu did was a Depardon’t but in a way I understand what he had to do. Anyone who has downed copious amounts of beer knows fully well that when the call comes you have to answer it. It will take superhuman willpower or extremely overdeveloped sphincter muscles to keep yourself from doing number one. And Depardieu, who is obviously not the strapping macho man that he was in Green Card, is obviously not the master of his bladder anymore.
This may be an embarrassing incident, but don’t worry Mr. Depardieu, this will all be, uhm, water under the bridge in no time. In the meantime, do those Kegels, please.
