Get in Shape with the Captain Morgan Workout

You may have thought that the ad world had run out of ideas featuring people dressed as pirates doing what is now known as the “Captain Morgan’s Pose.” Well, you thought wrong, as proved by this nearly three-minute “workout” video from Pereira & O’Dell and production company Station Film. Calling all captains to break a sweat.

After a few minutes of “lifting, holding and down” ourselves, we didn’t find any immediate results and only felt a slight pull in our thighs. I was telling my mom it would replace her “Jane Fonda Workouts” series, and she could finally throw out all of those old VHS tapes. I am a bad son.

But, maybe we’re doing it wrong, and had we been exercising while simultaneously taking pulls from a bottle of Captain Morgan’s, we too could feel like models or even cuter young actresses. Also, who knew that Cleveland was the place where we could “unlock the secret of tantric meditation?” Drew Carey, that’s who. Does anyone have any rum?
