Johnny Depp

Surprise Appearance

at Native American Parade

EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Depp
is an honorary member of the Comanche Indian tribe, so it should come as no surprise he showed up at Comanche Nation Fair today in Oklahoma ... except for the fact the tribe didn't publicize his appearance at all.

The 21st Annual Comanche Nation Fair is being held this weekend in Lawton, OK ... and none of the locals knew Depp would be there today. We're told the tribe wanted to keep Depp's appearance a secret so the parade (where he served as Grand Marshall) was not bombarded with people there just to see Johnny.  

As you can see from the video, they succeeded admirably.

Depp was named an honorary member of the tribe back in May, partly due to the fact he is playing Tonto in the upcoming "Lone Ranger" movie.

I've followed The Lone Ranger from radio when I was a kid. I hope this turns out to be a good movie and stays as close to Striker's vision of the characters.


Bazooka Fun Fact of the Day. The Lone Ranger is The Green Hornet's great-uncle.

If it was a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie I would think there'd be a bigger crowd and not filmed by an amateur teenager. It was a nice gesture on his part otherwise.

Are you people stupid or new to the media/entertainment world? If he did this to promote his movie there would have been weeks of planning ahead of this. There was like 50 people there. Oh yeah man, that's some HUGE promotion. And notice how there are signs all over promoting the movie. Oh wait, there's not one thing mentioning it. Perhaps he's just not a dickwad like most of the people featured on TMZ. LOL

That multi-millionaire is as much a part of that indian tribe as I am. Love how he is surrounded by security. Can't let those indians near the famous actor only there for publicity.

WOW ! ! ! What a douchebag that Depp is.

.

There were more security than spectators. Why?

.

Because DEPPsh!t thinks he's somebody and believes his own hype.

What a tool.
