Who is Captain Morgan? His Crew Speaks

The Fearless Leader, Through the Eyes of His Entourage

Published on .

We've all heard the tales: Captain Morgan is tenacious, fearless and a legend. Diageo and Anomalycontinue to build out the colorful mythology around the brand's swashbuckling namesake with this magnificent series of character-driven online films featuring first-hand accounts from his 17th-century entourage.

Directed by Smuggler's Todd Field (Little Children, In the Bedroom), the intimate portraits depict the various crew members recalling their best moments with their renegade leader -- including a barber [above] whose duties may not necessarily end at a close shave, a scar-adorned navigator, and a pair of maidens [below] whose encounters with Morgan reveal his impressive range of skill in the bedroom.

The online films are a teaser to an upcoming trio of spots for the brand, previewed in this video.
