Chosen One of the Day: The bed that eats Johnny Depp in A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street is credited for giving us Johnny Depp, which was a complimentary thing to say about the film until about 2004 and is now said with a slight scowl and a "thanks, I guess." In the 80s and 90s, we had no idea the young actor playing Nancy's boyfriend Glen would grow up to be disappointing as a human. Instead we revelled in his nice face and excellent hair. And while we still enjoy the film that launched his career as well as his excellent death scene, we can definitely say, in hindsight, we're decidedly pro-bed.

In the scene, we see a young Depp at rest. He wears a croptop football jersey and giant headphones and has a small television on his lap, for, you see, it is 1984. Also, his hair is resplendent.

And then his bed gets hungry.

With its Depp snack, the bed also takes his TV set and a hi-fi, presumably for fiber. Satiated, the bed then gushes forth with enough blood to fill a decent-sized above-ground pool. 

It's possible Johnny Depp didn't sit will with the bed's tummy. We've all been there. Chipotle and Johnny Depp--they'll do it to you every time.
