Captain Jack Sparrow may be pleased about his jar of dirt, but wait until he sees how Zayn one-ups him with this amazing tribute to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’…
Speaking to ‘Paper’ magazine, Mr Malik revealed he has built a bar inspired by the Disney movie’s theme in his London home.
“I love the [movie’s] aesthetic and how well it’s done. I feel like it’s really authentic to pirate times. Like I know anything about ‘pirate times’. I guess I just love it. I’m a big kid.”
Despite being a massive fan of the movie franchise, Zayn missed out on the opportunity to meet ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp with 1D back in 2012.
“I was too nervous to go. I am a massive, massive fan and I didn’t want to embarrass myself so I let the boys go without me. Hopefully, there will be a next time. The boys said he was totally cool. I kind of regret it for sure and the lads said I was a scaredy cat.”
“Some of our fans get so excited or nervous when they meet us and that’s how I was at the thought of being with Johnny. But instead of lapping it up and enjoying it, I ran the other way.”
Poor Z! We hope now he’ll pluck up the courage and invite Mr Depp around for a bottle of rum in the bar. But only if he dresses as Jack Sparrow, or the deal is off. For us, anyway.
What do you think – should Zayn make a YouTube video as a ‘room tour’ of the bar? We are dying to see it. Tweet us @maximumpop while we fantasise over Zayn being a hot pirate. Don’t judge, you’d do it, too.
