By the Caribbean Journal staff
Captain Morgan Rum has its newest Captain: Chrissy Teigen.
The supermodel is the star of the rum giant’s newest ad released this week.
In the spot, Teigen plays “Paquita Pantalones,” a peg-legged pirate hawking the company’s batch of new flavoured rums.
Shot in the style of 1950s-era thriller films, the spot is called “I Know What You Drank Last Summer.”
In the ad, Teigen, brandishing a rapier, creatively distributes the company’s new rums: Coconut Rum, Grapefruit Rum and Pineapple Rum.
The new rums are the latest in a series of launches for the Caribbean-based brand, which last year debuted its new White Rum, one we rather liked, particularly for its smoothness.
The Captain Morgan distillery is located in St Croix in the US Virgin Islands.
