Naughty pranks sometimes reap the best rewards.
Johnny Depp employed the cast of Velocity’s Overhaulin’ to prank his wife Amber Heard into believing her beloved 1968 Mustang had been stolen for the third time, when in reality, it was just getting a sweet makeover.
In a special sneak peek of the show, shared by ET, the actress got all worked up when “police officers” failed to look for her “stolen” vehicle and instead took unwarranted selfies with her and Depp.
“Get my car back!” Heard yelled at the officers, who were really host Chris Jacobs and famed custom car designer Chip Foose in disguise.
“They come up and we act all starstruck,” Jacobs told ET of the prank. “Chip is taking surreptitious pictures and Amber’s getting pissed off.”
Before Heard’s temper truly flared, the group – which included the actress’ father, David – revealed the truth.
“I’m blown away, I’m speechless I can’t believe all of this,” the star admitted.
Johnny Depp: His Changing Looks
For Depp, whom Jacobs described as a “down-to-Earth guy,” keeping a secret from his wife wasn’t easy.
“There’s only so many times you can change the subject,” he joked.
Heard’s car, which she called a “drivable piece of junk,” was updated in a beautiful cherry red.
The couple’s episode of Overhaulin’ airs on Nov. 4 on Velocity.
