Johnny Depp to the Rescue!!! (Video)

EXCLUSIVE

A drone caught Johnny Depp starboard and in character on the shores of Australia, where he's filming the 5th 'Pirates of the Caribbean' -- but his get-up didn't exactly match the rescue boat.

All hands on the production deck got a kick out of the quadcopter -- especially Captain Jack Sparrow. The drone eventually flew off ... but not before flying over Cap'n Sparrow's real ship. 

The video's fun. Yrrrrr welcome.
