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.

Captain Jack Sparrow Invades New York City (in LEGO Form)

LEGO Jack Sparrow

We first introduced you to the life-size Captain Jack Sparrow LEGO sculpture at its reveal with actor Ian McShane (Blackbeard) at a Disney Consumer Products event earlier this year. Since then, we had a brief encounter with Jack once more at the New York International Toy Fair, but we were still nonetheless surprised encountering Jack at one of his first public installations — the world famous FAO Schwarz on Fifth Avenue.

Just a day or two ago, FAO had replaced all of its LEGO sculptures with new ones including a life-size Indiana Jones and a monumentally-sized Statue of Liberty.
