When you get on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, you expect to see Jack Sparrow among the undead pirates you pass in your boat. You just don’t expect to see Johnny Depp acting as Jack Sparrow, but that’s exactly what these lucky park-goers got during their ride.
Considering the fifth movie of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is set to release in May, Depp’s antics should come as no surprise — it’s not unheard of for Disney stars to hang out in the parks to promote their movies. That doesn’t mean it’s not cool as hell for all the people who happened to see him, though.
Of course, there were a lot of people who were jealous that they didn’t get to be there to see the Pirates star, especially since most of us grew up idolizing Jack Sparrow. (Was I the only person who modeled my rebellious phase off of him? Yes? OK.)
If you didn’t get to see the real Jack Sparrow in the flesh (like most of us lowly peasants), don’t worry — you’ve still got the movie to look forward to, and let’s not forget that our favorite trio will be reunited in it.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to rewatch all of those videos.
