Gerard Depardieu Plane Peeing Spoof For French TV (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Even Gerard Depardieu himself can't help but laugh at his infamous plane peeing incident.

The French star, who peed in the aisle of a CityJet plane flying from Paris to Dublin in mid-August when he wasn't allowed to use the bathroom, is proving a good sport about his snafu. Depardieu played Obelix, a French cartoon character who, among many other things, loves to eat wild boar. Sitting next to Edouard Baer -- who was his travel buddy that fateful day -- he throws a tantrum and makes when he learns that he has to wait until takeoff to dine on swine.

No word yet on whether Anderson Cooper found this go-round quite as funny.

Depardieu and Baer will actually star in an upcoming big screen version of the cartoon -- no airplane peeing involved, presumably -- out in 2012.
