As you may have heard, French actor Gerard Depardieu reportedly dropped hit pants and drunkenly pissed all over the cabin of a commercial airplane Tuesday night when told by flight attendants that he couldn’t get into one of the plane’s bathrooms.
The 62-year-old actor was caught short on a delayed flight from Paris to Dublin on Tuesday evening as the jet taxied, but his demands to be allowed out of his seat fell on deaf ears, according to another traveler speaking to French radio station Europe 1 on Wednesday morning.
“Je veux pisser, je veux pisser,” implored Depardieu, according to Daniele, who was among the 127 passengers on board the Air France jet left reeling by the antics of the giant of the French screen.
“The attendant said ‘I’m sorry, you’ll have to wait fifteen minutes, [when] we’ll be in flight. The toilets are locked,’” Daniele added. Depardieu said he could not wait, unzipped his pants and reportedly proceeded to urinate on the carpet. “You could tell he’d been drinking,” the disgusted passenger claimed.
A Frenchman whipped out his penis in public! Is anyone really surprised? (Sorry, had to fill my French penis joke quota for this post.)
So last night CNN’s Anderson Cooper was having some fun with the story — reading bad pun-filled copy his staff prepared for him — when he proceeded to just lose it about halfway through. I’m talking doubled over with tears in his eyes on live television for a good two minutes.
Meanwhile, someone needs to print some t-shirts with “Je veux pisser, je veux pisser” printed on them. I’d buy one, and I have a feeling Anderson Cooper would too.
