Watch Johnny Depp channel Trump in this crazy new Funny or Die movie


Donald Trump may be fresh off of winning the New Hampshire primary, but arguably equally notable is the fact the he is the subject of a new Funny or Die spoof — and played by Johnny Depp, no less. The hilarious video is an ambitious 50-minute movie with a host of recognizable names and faces, including director Ron Howard, Alf, and more.

Modeled after the made-for-TV movies of the ’80s, Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie spoofs the current presidential hopeful’s bestselling 1987 book, as well as his recent controversies along the campaign trail. In an intro featuring Howard, the filmmaker says that Trump himself wrote, directed, and starred in the flick, but that it was withheld from audiences after being preempted by a “crappy” Monday Night Football game. It was then “thought to be lost in the Cybill Shepherd blouse fire” before being found at a yard sale and shown to audiences.

Funny or Die highlighted this fictional backstory in a tweet, encouraging viewers to “behold the glory.”

“The glory” centers on Trump’s attempt to close a deal to acquire the Taj Mahal on his 40th birthday. As he attempts to do so, he meets a young fan and decides to pass along his wisdom. This knowledge, of course, is wildly un-PC, and he’s shown insulting Rosie O’Donnell, making racially charged comments, and being less than impressed when a kid tells him his father was a hero who died in Vietnam. (“I would say it’s a little bit more heroic not to get killed,” he says, alluding to the actual Trump’s comments about former POW Senator John McCain.)

There are shining moments along the way, including a montage of Trump taking calls. “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” he says at one point. “I can build you a much nicer one.”

As surprisingly long as the movie is, there are hilarious surprises right till the end, including two unexpected twists that pay homage to familiar hits of the past.
