Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts, but you might have to part with a bit of your dignity to get them. And by part with your dignity, we mean wear a damn pirate costume out in public. Or at least talk like a pirate.
Here's the deal:
As in previous years, Krispy Kreme is celebrating International Talk Like a Pirate Day on Monday, September 19th, by handing out a bounty of its signature sugary dough rings to customers who talk and dress like a pirate. Participating Krispy Kreme locations will give you one free Original Glazed donut if you talk to them like a pirate, or a whole dozen Original Glazed donuts if you show up dressed like a pirate, according to the company's Facebook event page. You don't even to buy anything.
To qualify for the dozen donuts, you have to put at least a little effort into your pirate costume by wearing at least three pirate items like an eye patch, pirate hat, or a bandana although weapons are strictly forbidden for obvious reasons. Or you can use Krispy Kreme's new custom pirate filter to "digitally ‘dress’ like a pirate" instead, and simply show the image from your Snapchat at the counter to get your free donuts, which sounds way easier than digging up your old eye patch.
