Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have shared what is either the absolute best or the absolute worst apology video of all time, stemming (of course) from the great smuggled dogs controversy of 2015. Though initial whisperings of the dog-centered scandal pointed to the possibility of a very severe punishment for Heard, she was ultimately able to plead guilty to "knowingly producing a false or misleading document," according toCNN.

"When you disrespect Australian law, they will tell you firmly," a noticeably somber Depp says in the soon-to-be viral smash of an apology video. "I'm truly sorry Pistol and Boo were not declared," Heard adds. "Protecting Australia is important." That protection, of course, is a matter taken very seriously by the Australian government.

Heard ultimately got off with a one-month good behavior bond sentence, which CNN reports could result in "a fine of 1,000 Australian dollars" should the bond be broken. The incident, however, will not go on her record. Depp was not charged in the apparent smuggling of two (obviously awesome) Yorkshire terriers.

The underground dog incident, which took place last summer, was spurred by Depp's shooting schedule for the 87th (give or take) Pirates of the Caribbean in the country. Though Heard was initially rumored to be facing as much as 10 years in prison and a hefty $75,000 fine, she and Depp were ultimately able to settle the disagreement with the compelling hostage vibes of the video above. Excellent work, Australia.
