You must have heard about Australia’s “War on Terrier” here or there. I mean, it’s the joke of the year! And that joke’s just about to get a million times better!
Back in April 21 of last year, Amber Heard was accused of smuggling her two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, aboard husband Johnny Depp’s private jet. Heard was then given 72 hours to send her dogs back to the US or else they would be euthanized; that was the threat made by politician Barnaby Joyce.
According to E Online, Heard pleaded guilty to false immigration documents when she entered Australia with her dogs last year and was charged with a 1-month $ 1,000 good behavior bond, which meant she should make any other offenses till May 18. By that, she dodged a 10-year prison sentence and a $ 100,000 fine. And so, Heard, 29, and Depp, 52, filmed this awkward apology video where they took turns reading lines of the statement that was submitted to the Queensland court regarding biosecurity laws. Depp ended the video by solemnly saying:
“Declare everything when you enter Australia. Thanks.”
Now, the internet blew out with the most hilarious reactions to the couple’s torturous video. Here are just a couple of the tweets, just for laughs!

Let’s be honest here, Depp’s acting in that video is still going to be better than whatever we’re subjected to in Pirates 5 #waronterrier

When Johnny Depp apologises for Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, we’ll know he’s serious about making it up to Australians #waronterrier

I think my favourite bit is right at the start when Depp goes to read Heard’s line but then realises he is a second tier character

I’ve seen ISIS hostage videos with more joie de vivre than Johnny Depp’s #WarOnTerrier apology.

Johnny Depp sounds about as sincere as the hostages in those IS propaganda videos #waronterrier

How did Joyce even get them to do that can we humiliate celebrities by LAW
