When a group of adventurous Disneyland visitors opted for Pirates of Caribbean ride on Wednesday afternoon, they expected a swashbuckling journey through caves inspired by the film series of the same name.
Little did they know that their expectations would be blown out of the water and they would have a great story to tell their family and friends for years to come.
The riders got the surprise of their lives when they saw a real person posing as Captain Jack Sparrow instead of the usual wax figure.
As they got closer, reality began to set in and they realized that the ultra-realistic figure is none other than the actor who plays Jack Sparrow in the popular film franchise - Johnny Depp!
Depp slipped into character so he could surprise the amusement park-goers and give them a rare experience they would never forget. He was “waving his arms and sword, drunkenly swaying as the captain’s wont to do,” reports Today.
It’s not everyday that you get to meet a celebrity so you can imagine the shock that these riders experienced. Some instantly took to social media to express their awe:
Watch the video below to see the riders reactions to Depp’s surprise appearance.
Deep will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the 5th movie of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales. The film is set to grace our big screens on May 26.
