McDonalds Ad, 1977
Ridiculously, Johnny Depp is 46 today, which means in four years time Johnny Depp will be 50. It just doesn’t feel right. A bit like when you see kids from Grange Hill, only now they’ve got hairy faces, wives, and cheque books. Or Aled Jones doing Songs of Praise with his great big protruding belly and soft podgy face. These people were not meant to grow old. They should be forever young, like Cliff Richard. And yet they’re not. Hence, we thought it best to pick up Johnny a gift, so we visited an aging soothsayer who fixes watches in China Town to discuss things, and it boiled down to a nice pair of Stan Smiths to make him seem younger, or a McDonalds advert from the 1970s. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Johnny Depp!
