Model Chrissy Teigan stars in Captain Morgan adBy Amy Hopkins
Supermodel Chrissy Teigan is starring as a peg-legged buccaneer in a new advertisement for Captain Morgan’s flavoured rum range.
Teigan, who is married to musician John Legend, stars as “Paquita Pantalones”, a sword-wielding female counterpart to the Captain Morgan character in the new US advert.
The advertisement, which can been viewed in full below, promotes Captain Morgan’s new flavoured range consisting of Pineapple, Coconut and Grapefruit variants.
In the ad, entitled “I know what you drank last summer”, Teigan slices pineapples with a sword and smashes grapefruits to create cocktails for beach holiday-makers.
On her Instagram account, Teigan said: “Watch my new @CaptainMorganUSA video! My co-stars are the most delicious cocktails of all time, and I dyed my hair black and cut my leg off because I commit to my craft.”
Brand-owner Diageo launched the collection in the US in February this year, announcing its intention to roll out a summer-themed marketing campaign throughout the year.
