Johnny Depp is Donald Trump!

We all know Johnny Depp insists on preposterous hair and makeup for every role, so how could he possibly resist the chance to play Donald Trump? In a spoof of a 1980s TV movie, no less!

VIDEO: The Lone Ranger (2013)

Mendo takes on last year’s controversial flop, which recently joined the hallowed ranks of films that have been nominated for both Razzies and Oscars.

Watch and wonder how a movie this mediocre made a billion damn dollars.

VIDEO: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

“Welcome to the first episode of a brand new series, where your host Fear Fan explores the best and worst horror films ever made! In this episode, take a trip into the demented mind of Wes Craven as we watch his greatest creation: 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp, John Saxon, and Robert Englund as the original Freddy Krueger!”
