Johnny Depp just did the coolest thing ever for kids

Johnny Depp took time out from shooting the next "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequel to spend some time at a children's hospital in Brisbane.

The actor arrived in full Jack Sparrow attire greeting surprised children and giving them hugs. He also stayed in character throughout the visit and took selfiies with them in the ward, not to mention delivering a few classic one-liners.

It was not too long ago that Johnny Depp faced a backlash from the Australian authorities after bringing his dogs into the country without declaring them. It was suggested that he could face a maximum charge of 10 years in prison for doing so.

The incident was spoofed and re-made into a comedy by ABC turning a scene from the original Pirates movie into this:
