Johnny Depp showed up as Captain Jack Sparrow at the real life Pirates of the Caribbean ride

This is great. Savvy?

In the famous words of Admiral James Norrington, Keith Richards Captain Jack Sparrow is “without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of”. Ah yes, “but you have heard of me” is the most important part of that conversation.

Despite sequels of varying quality, Johnny Depp’s beloved pirate is one of the most famous characters in recent cinematic history. For one brief moment, ignore the films because Captain Jack has a far more important role in people’s lives.

Take a look at this story about the times when Johnny Depp visits sick children in hospital, dressed as their on-screen idol.

This is wonderful.

As you may know, the swashbuckling movies were based on the famous theme park ride in Disneyland and Depp was more than happy to embrace the roots of the beloved franchise by performing as Captain Jack on the actual Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

In his immortal words, “I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly, it’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly stupid.”

For those in attendance, “this is either madness, or brilliance.” It’s brilliance.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is released on May 26th.

Take a look.

MY LIFE IS COMPLETE OMG #johnnydepp #captainjacksparrow
