This is possibly the weirdest and most awkward celeb video of the year.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp today filmed a video apologising to the nation of Australia after Heard was sentenced with a $1000, one-month good behaviour bond for smuggling her dogs into Australia last year.
Barnaby Joyce (possibly the most Aussie politician name ever) is the MP for New England and deputy Prime Minister and posted the apology video on Facebook with the caption: "Depp and Heard make a public statement highlighting the importance of biosecurity in Australia. The consequences of a disease outbreak could have been terrifying. We can't take the risk."
“Australia is a wonderful island, with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals, and people. Australia is free of many pests and diseases that are commonplace throughout the world. That is why Australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws." Heard tells the camera before a clearly squirming Depp interjects with, "Australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. When you disrespect Australian law they will tell you firmly."
It sounds like they're apologising to the Mafia for disrespecting the family more than for sneaking dogs into a country.
Of course, Twitter is having a field day.

Barnaby Joyce should receive automatic immunity from prosecution for however long he lives. He has my utmost respect today

Depp is very underrated as an actor. That performance of 'man loathing every second of being forced to do this' was utterly convincing.

They're lucky all they got was a fine and an apology, and not a booting.
