About

Mega Pint of Red Wine refers to a moment from the Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp trial where one of Heard's attorneys asks Depp if he poured himself a "mega pint of red wine" after showing a video Heard recorded of Depp angrily yelling and slamming several cabinets. The clip went viral shortly after, inspiring memes about "mega pints" using the reference as a catchphrase in late April and May 2022.

Origin

On April 21st, 2022, on the seventh day of the Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp trial, the Law&Crime Network YouTube[1] channel uploaded a clip from the trial where they show a video that Heard recorded as evidence of his domestic violence toward her. In the video, Depp is seen yelling, cursing and slamming cabinet doors, the glass on at least one of them breaking. Depp pours himself a large glass of wine and finds the camera, grabbing it to stop Heard from recording him. After the video ends, Depp says the clip is illegally recorded and one of Heard's attorneys asks if Depp was drunk in the video, to which he answers, "There's a possibility of that." The attorney then says, "You poured yourself a mega pint of red wine, correct?" Depp repeats, "a mega pint," and the courtroom attendants laugh. He then says, "I poured myself a large glass of wine. I thought it necessary" (shown below). The video went viral, gaining over 7.2 million views in just over a week.



Spread

The video inspired several notable memes referencing "mega pints" due to the humorous wording. For example, on April 22nd, 2022, Twitter[2] user @LegendaryEnergy tweeted the clip, writing, "Johnny Depp 'mega pint of wine' is relatable to wine women everywhere." On April 24th, Instagram[3] user thesarcasticpage posted a meme showing a woman drinking a comically large glass of wine captioned, "johny depp drinking wine according to Amber Heard's lawyer," gaining over 24,000 likes in a week (shown below, left). On April 28th, the same Instagram[4] user posted another meme referencing the mega pint, gaining over 7,800 likes in four days (shown below, right).
