Je Veux Parody: Gérard Depardieu Spoofs Plane Peeing Incident in New Video
Gérard Depardieu may not have the bladder control he used to, but at least his sense of humor is as intact as ever. The French screen legend appears in a new parody video with his Asterix and Obelix: On Her Majesty's Secret Service co-star Edouard Baer, featuring the duo in character as the famous comic-book Gauls and Depardieu battling valiantly for lavatory privileges. It's all in French, but hey. Having to pee is a universal language all its own.
The pair shot the video for the French publication Tell Me; the bit is intended to stoke viral promotion for their Asterix and Obelix film set for release in 2012. It will never supplant the vivid mind's-eye image of Depardieu warbling "Je veux pisser, je veux pisser" up and down the aisle of his Paris-to-Dublin flight before relieving himself on the carpet in front of God and everybody, but it's something. And any conflation of Air France flight attendants and second-century Roman invaders is always hilarious.
