Paul McCartney shared this picture of himself Saturday in full costume for the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and freaked everyone out.

Some people wondered if it was a joke or real.

Deadline reported last year that the former Beatle had joined the cast of the film, which is set to be released on May 26.

Sir Paul McCartney won't be the first rock star to make an appearance in the film series. Keith Richards played Captain Teague, the father of Johnny Depp's character, Jack Sparrow, in 2011's On Stranger Tides.

No one seems quite sure what role McCartney will be playing in the latest installment of popular pirate series.

Still, people are shook that he's going to be freaking pirate!

SIR PAUL AND JOHNNY DEPP ARE GOING TO BE IN A MOVIE TOGETHER I AM FREAKING OUT MY HEART LITERALLY CANNOT HANDLE IT #PiratesLife

This has to be a joke, right? Ease up. #PiratesLife

And most seemed pretty happy with his look.

Of course, it opened the door for plenty of Beatles' references.

And some pretty obvious suggestions for his pirate name.

Best of luck, Sir Paul McCartney!
