The Graham Norton Show does everything against the grain. I still feel that nothing will top Will Smith singing the Fresh Prince theme song and doing “The Carlton” with Alfonso Ribeiro. If anything, this show proves that even the biggest stars can do the silliest of things.
Nothing proves that more than the above video, as the soon-to-be Sorceror Supreme and who everybody THOUGHT was going to be the Sorcerer Supreme, Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Depp, appeared to promote the UK release of Black Mass.
Graham brings up to Benedict the viral sensation that he resembles an otter, and then explains it to Depp by showing various pictures that do a pretty decent job of proving the theory correct. However, with only three pictures to show, Graham decided that for this to go REALLY viral, they had to make some of their own. Benedict then goes through an exercise of mimicry and self-deprecation as he does his best to imitate the otters. Johnny and Graham even join in the fun on the last photo. I am hopeful you are still able to read this since that last one probably did the whole “break the internet” thing that celebrities sometimes do.
Black Mass is in theaters in the UK this week, and will release on Blu-ray in 2016.
So what do you think? What would Johnny Depp’s “spirit animal” be? Should stars like him and Benedict really be encouraging the internet (yes)? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
