French actor Gerard Depardieu, perhaps inspired by the young skiier, was on a Paris-to-Dublin flight when he got the urge to pee just before take-off.
When a flight attendant asked the actor to sit and wait 15 minutes for the plane to reach cruising altitude, he did what nobody else would do and stood up and pissed on the airplane floor, CityJet told AFP.
“I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane,” a spokeswoman for the Air France-KLM subsidiary said. The spokeswoman said the incident had taken place on Tuesday evening on board flight AF5010. She did not say whether the company intended to take further action against the popular French star and winemaker.
“We could see he had been drinking. The stewardess was dumbfounded,” added the spokeswoman. “No one said anything. It all happened with courtesy. Mr. Depardieu sat back down and the plane returned to the parking area to be cleaned.”
Love that it “happened with courtesy.” It’s like your mom tells you growing up if you’re going to get drunk and piss on an airplane floor, at least do it with courtesy. That’s probably where Vietze went wrong.
Two stories do not a trend make, so what’s it going to take to get a third celebrity or semi-famous person to get drunk and piss on the airplane floor? We’re looking at you, Shia LeBeouf.
