Johnny Depp has resurfaced in a new music video promoting his Dior fragrance, and his name is starting to trend as fans praise the company for supporting him. The clip, titled “Conversations with Craftsmen: Game of Notes,” is of a talk show-style chat between Depp and Dior perfumer-maker François Demachy, creators of the fragrance Sauvage. You can watch the latest Johnny Depp video below.
With Laurianne Melierre hosting, Depp and Demachy talk about their creative inspirations. Depp even strums his guitar at one point in the video and tests a new scent at another time. It’s also the first of a series of meetings between the two, as the end of the footage teases “more to come” in September 2021. To stay with Depp at a time when companies like Disney and Warner Bros. Keeping your distance, many fans are praising Dior with the hashtag #ThankYouDior trending next to Depp’s name.
“From now on I would love to see new content from @Dior presented by #JohnnyDepp at least once a week (more content is welcome of course), just to see Johnny testing perfume, play guitar, hear him speak French and most importantly seeing him smile,” reads a tweet from one fan.
“Just watched @Dior’s new clip featuring #JohnnyDepp and just wanted to say a huge thank you for standing next to Johnny and not believing what the media is trying to push down our throats but believing the evidence. You chose the right path Thank you,” said another.
“We will not forget that Dior supported Johnny Depp in this dire situation as Disney and Warner Bros. fired him,” said another fan.
And another fan tweeted: “The magnificent @dior once again shows the world that they are standing side by side with an innocent survivor of domestic violence. While other ‘so-called’ companies fired Johnny for being a victim and a self-confessed abuser in enlisted… @dior continued their support!”
This all stems from the brief but tumultuous marriage between Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard. After their divorce, Heard described herself as a survivor of domestic violence in a Washington Post op-ed, suggesting that Depp allegedly abused her. Depp says the claim got him fired by Disney for his lucrative role as Jack Sparrow in the… pirates of the caribbean series. More recently, Warner Bros. asked to take on his role as Grindelwald Fantastic Beasts 3 because of the allegations.
Many fans believe Depp is innocent of the charges after his lawyers released public evidence that some say proves his word. This includes audio recordings of Heard allegedly admitting to being violent towards Depp and CCTV footage from police that appeared to corroborate Depp’s version of events one night Heard later said he assaulted her. A popular Change.org petition has been launched for Warner Bros. to fire Heard from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but it was ineffective as she is now on location in London working on the sequel.
Warner Bros. has come under fire especially from Depp fans for keeping Heard employed after they fired Depp. Meanwhile, Dior is getting a lot of positive attention online for their continued dedication to the actor. The video teaser for “Game of Notes” comes from Dior, and you can look forward to more in September 2021.
