Captain Henry Morgan, the iconic real-life privateer lost in the Caribbean in 1671, is the persona who forms the heart of much-adored Captain Morgan Spiced Gold brand. He’s a bit of a party animal and most of all he’s a pirate, which is why it’s probably quite fitting that he’s decided to join (gatecrash) the Sports Illustrated swimwear models during their swimwear edition photo shoot in Thailand. The man is genius.
It’s all part of a campaign to push the fact that the Captain is capable of everything from making mooiness swoon to kicking off a wild night with the SASI ladies. You can see more of this campaign at www.captainsgatecrash.co.za including behind the scenes footage and images. The November Sports Illustrated swimwear edition is available soon and to celebrate, the Sports Illustrated launch event will be going down at The Reserve in Cape Town on Friday, 12th October (can you say EXCITEMENT).
If you’d be keen to gatecrash and get a little bit more than most, just like the Captain did, you might want to check out the Captain’s Gatecrash Competition, which allows fans to unlock 9 images of the 2012 swimwear models, simply by inviting your mates to check out the pics. For anyone lucky enough to unlock all 9 images bonus footage is available for download, as well as spot prizes and a chance to win tickets to the SASI launch event in Cape Town on Friday, 12th October for you and 3 friends.
Spot prizes include an iPad2, a Sony Bloggie camera, and a Blackberry Bold handset. The main prize, over and above the VIP tickets to the Sports Illustrated party, includes the following:
• Economy flights to and from Cape Town
• Accommodation at the Fire & Ice hotel for the night of Friday 12th October, with breakfast included
• Abseil down Table Mountain with scenic cable car trip
• Limo transfers from airport to hotel, from hotel to the event (with the Captain and his Morganettes) and then the next day from the hotel back to the airport
• Taxi transfer after the event back to the hotel
• VIP tickets to SASI party
• Photos with some of the models
• Spending money for any other meals/drinks
Pretty tidy prize considering you’re going to be perving hard anyways… You might as well get something out of it!
