Most people love Johnny Depp, however, he recently melted hearts around the world when he got back into character as Captain Jack Sparrow to help a special young fan out.
A YouTube channel titled “Kraken The Box” is operated by an 11-year-old boy named Kori. Kori shared a personal video that Depp, 59, and the Make-A-Wish foundation recently sent him. In the clip, the actor brought back to life Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Depp, in character, said, “So, Capt. Kori, terribly sorry I missed out on this. Meant to say it, forgot to say it, didn’t say it, gonna say it now. Saying it, I’ll say it. I hear tell of something they speak about in the ages of now called the YouTube channel, which I don’t understand, but why not?”
Depp went on to say in the slurring words of Jack Sparrow that he “shall be glad to follow your YouTube channel and I shall tell all my friends to follow your Youtube channel.”
As Depp ended the video, he said, “I wish you the best of luck. I am your No. 1 fan, Capt. Kori,” Depp said to finish the video as he blows a kiss to the camera.
Kori is a “massive” fan of Jack Sparrow and watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies “during his multiple heart surgeries and subsequent recovery periods,” a source said.
In a separate YouTube video titled “THANK YOU FOR 1000 SUBS!,” Kori’s mother confirmed that her son has received two heart transplants in his life and is currently in palliative care.
“So we are making the most of whatever time we have left by not going to school — bonus — not really doing any housework, living in our pajamas and just slumming it really,” she explained in the video. “We’re just kind of focusing on making life as good as we possibly can and having as much fun as we can when we can.”
