An American television show has taken aim at Australia in a rather hilarious fashion.
Depp, who brought his two dogs into Australia illegally to film the new installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, was told by Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce last week the dogs would be euthanised if they weren’t taken home.
“It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States,” the minister eloquently said.
The canine “illegal aliens” were subsequently flown back to the United States — but Australia is not safe from becoming the butt of John Oliver’s (admittedly amusing) jokes.
“I’m afraid that your minister has just made this personal. And America has no choice but to respond,” a menacing voiceover declares on Oliver’s show.
