The latest Captain Morgan ads are ludicrous, which probably means they're going over great with the college crowd. In the spot above, four buddies stumble into a bar that's literally a "sausage fest," the classic frat-boy phrase meaning a party with too many dudes. (They flee in disgust, but not before one of them, confident in his masculinity, orders five pounds of kielbasa.) In one spot below, a bottle of Captain Morgan is preferred over a bottle containing a ship with tiny sailors singing a poor man's Gilbert & Sullivan. The other features a "reverse ventriloquist"—a big puppet operating a small human. The ads are part of the rum brand's new "Calling all captains" campaign, which naturally includes a prank-call game, too.
