In his new Vanity Fair cover story (not online yet, sadly), Johnny Depp and writer Douglas Brinkley visit Little Hall’s Pond Cay, Depp’s private, 45-acre Bahamian island, just a short yacht ride off the coast of Nassau.

According to Brinkley, every night on the trip, he, Depp, and their three accompanying friends sat around in Depp’s docked yacht watching YouTube videos.Here are the videos mentioned in the story:

This one is George Whitman, owner of Paris’s Shakespeare and Co. bookstore, lighting his hair on fire to impress two women:


Here’s James Brown’s famous late-eighties CNN interview. “This is as high as you can get,” observes Depp in the article. “Unless you go on ether.”

Says Brinkley, “Depp is a huge fan of the 1970s Dean Martin TV roasts with Don Rickles, so we consume them by the hour.” Here’s Rickles roasting Martin:

Also, “the old comedian Foster Brooks, whose shtick was sham inebriation, can almost move Depp to tears.” Here’s Brooks roasting Johnny Carson:

This one’s not technically available on YouTube, but Brinkley says, “we watch A Colbert Christmas, largely to see Willie Nelson in the Three Wise Men skit.”

They also watch Tom Cruise’s appearance in Tropic Thunder. “That’s the best I’ve ever seen Cruise,” says Depp.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
