Debuted exclusively by Yahoo! Movies, this clip from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides titled ‘Palace Escape,’ picks up early in the film where Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself at the hands of Britan’s King George II and former ship-mate Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) who has opted to join the British Royal Navy in their expedition. Sparrow, who is in fact guilty of being guilty of being Jack Sparrow, manages to find a way out of the situation, true-to-form, all the while managing to rescue a puff pastry that managed to find its way into the chandelier just prior.
