Finally, something about pirates that's actually kinda cool.

I've never understood the fanatical infatuation people have had for all things piratey the past few years (I mean, yeah, I like a good "naval battles & swordfights" movie as much as the next guy, but Pirates of the Caribbean wasn't really good enough to spawn an entire annoying lifestyle choice, was it?), but this animated short is pretty awesome... or I suppose that'd be l'awesome, seeing as this is from France.

(Reasonably safe for work, but there's some violence, and the lady pirate, though covered throughout, does tend to jiggle, so judge accordingly.)

Didja catch the Wilhelm scream in there?

My annoyance with the current pirate "movement" is furthered by just how savage piracy is as a crime. Maybe I'm oversensitive, but I find it astounding that piracy has been romanticized at all. Modern piracy is senseless and brutal; I doubt the piracy of yore was any less so.

That's my biggest problem with it, too, De. I just don't see the romance in undoubtedly smelly thieving raping murderers of the sea.
