Actor Johnny Depp has joined Instagram in the most Johnny Depp way possible. 

The elusive, yet A-list actor joined social media on Thursday to premiere his and Jeff Beck's musical cover of John Lennon's song, "Isolation." An admittedly fitting choice given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which Depp addressed in an extremely personal, 8-minute IGTV video.

"I've never done any of this before," Depp remarked while seated in what looked like a cavernous, candlelit room. "I don't think I've really ever felt any particular reason to until now. Now is the time to open up a dialogue, as the threat of this invisible enemy has already caused immeasurable tragedies and damage to people's lives."

The Oscar nominee urged those watching to stay focused on each other, sharing, "I know for the moment if feels like both of our times are tied behind our backs, and to some degree they are. But our minds are unbound and our hearts are not chained and we can care. Through caring we will help each other and we will prevail. Caring is as close as the eye can see. It's right in front of you at all times if you just have a look."

It's a very unique video. The tone, music and language used is, to put it simply, quite strange. But what else can we expect from one of the strangest actors in Hollywood!
