Six degrees of Johnny Depp

As you probably remember, I have a bit of an obsession with Pirates of the Caribbean. So naturally, I got the 2 disc special edition of the second movie. As Hubby and I were watching the extras, he began to notice something that, quite frankly, he seems to notice wherever we go. Large equipment, made by the company he works for, was featured prominently in much of the footage. The company's name is clearly visible many times, so much so that he wondered if they paid some kind of sponsorship fee!

So this got me thinking. You know that old game of six degrees? Could I actually be only six degrees away from my beloved pirates? Okay, let's find out:

  1. From me, to hubby
  2. From hubby, to the CEO of the company
  3. From CEO, to salesperson
  4. From salesperson, to rental company person
  5. From rental company person, to person working on the movie
  6. From person working on the movie, to Johnny Depp!

I am so much better connected than I thought I was!


  1. Oh Jana... You are trying aren't you?


  2. hmmm....Let me give it a try.

    1. I went to high school with Drew Bledsoe (former QB of Dallas Cowboys)
    2. He has played against Matt Hasselbeck (QB of Seattle Seahawks)
    3. Matt Hasselbeck's sister-in-law is Elizabeth Hasselbeck (co-host of The View)
    4.Elizabeth Hasselbeck works with Barbara Walters.
    5. Barbara Walters has interviewed Johnny Depp.

    Thank you - Thank you very much.

    By the way - I only bought the single-disc version. Watched it last night - there is only ONE special feature, a blooper reel. I was so disappointed.

  3. Chris - hey, don't take my happy thoughts away from me!!

    Karmyn - awesome! You have actual names. I only know that somewhere out there is a guy who rented that stuff, etc. That stinks about the single disc. You'll need to pick up the 2-disc version used somewhere. It's worth it.

  4. You're so close you better keep a look out on the horizon, matey ;)
