An excerpt from an interview with Johnny Depp in the January 1996 issue of Playboy:

PLAYBOY: You've played Ed Wood and Don Juan. Any other notable characters you want to play?

DEPP: Le Petomane.

PLAYBOY: You speak, of course, of the noted Parisian cabaret performer of the turn of the century, the fartiste who tooted grand opera from his anus--the original classical gas?

DEPP: You have to admire anyone with such great control of his... instrument. I'd love to play him. I'm sure there were tragic moments in his life. It's tragic that he left no successors. But what a hysterical scene when he discovers his gift. That's a role I'd do in a minute.

Bud Light Sleigh Ride commercial - Shown during the 2004 Super Bowl, it might have received some complaints. However, that was the same year as the famous "wardrobe malfunction" during the half-time show, so the FCC was too busy to notice.

The word for "fart" in Hiligaynon (a language spoken in the Western Visayas of the Philippines) is "otot."
