‘Black Sails’ Celebrates Talk Like a Pirate Day 1715 Style

Arr, Maties! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and Starz took full advantage of the occasion to allow the many pirates of their upcoming drama Black Sails to teach us the range of the true pirate’s vernacular. It appears we have been misled all these years because there is nary a “Yo Ho” to be found…which might be for the best because that particular turn of phrase has always sounded a bit off to me anyway.

Alas there’s no “arr,” either. Or even an “arg.” (Okay, maybe that last one is just a zombie phrase.) Anyway, don an eye patch and check out the video below…or watch the video and then don your eye patch, it might work better that way.

Black Sails premieres January 2014 on Starz.
