Gerard Depardieu Officially Does Not Give A Shit, Pees On Airplane Carpet

Illustration for article titled Gerard Depardieu Officially Does Not Give A Shit, Pees On Airplane Carpet

Today in people of note peeing in places they shouldn't: The popular French actor put on the drunken performance of a lifetime on Tuesday when he pulled down his trousers and peed on the floor of a delayed plane — in front of 127 awestruck/disgusted passengers. According to witnesses, Depardieu demanded access to the lavatory, which had just been locked for take off. Flight crew informed the him that he would just have to wait and that the toilets would be open in 15 minutes. Obviously that was just too damn long for France's greatest living actor, so he did his business right then and there. No word yet on whether legal action will be taken, but I'm sure the scorn he received from fellow travelers due to the extra 2-hour delay for cleaning was pretty bad.

The takeaway here: There are some situations in which the SkyMall catalogue is simply not distraction enough.

(I love France-related stories)

Seriously guys? You don't get it?

It was performance art, French-style.

Just like how, long after the world decided that it was time to stop nuking random islands in the ocean for shits and giggles, France decided to drop EVEN MORE. Why? Because fuck you, we are France! Being French is ART.

Just like how, long after the rest of the world had agreed that French cars are the exact opposite of where we want to take design, the French continued down the road (despite flagging sales abroad as the Japanese filled any voids.) Why? Because fuck you, we are France! Driving French is ART.

Just like how, long after the rest of the world decided to stop putting people with Napoleon complexes in power, France elected a guy who stands on a milk crate in photos because... well he is kind of short. Oh, and fuck you, we are France! Being short in France is ART!

And then, Mssr. Depardieu gets on a plane, and is told that he cannot pee? Because the rest of the world has decided that people shouldn't be up and about during takeoff? NON! Depardieu channeled his best ironic impersonation of Robert Vietze and let his stream of liberté flow! He was showing everyone how much better it is to be righteously pissed off than unfairly pissed on.

For the Republic!!
