Plot / Description

"Captain Morgan Perfect Getaway: Chapter One" 
This commercial begins with Captain Henry Morgan painting a big white "X" on the side of a building. A cannon is then fired from a ship in the harbor at this building which punches a hole right into what we learn is a jail cell. The prisoner looks out of the hole and down at Captain Morgan who is now below on the street with a horse drawn carriage with hay in the back. He has the prisoner jump down into the hay and then they race off. The prison guards give chase, as the group runs through the city on foot and on horseback. As they run along the rooftops, we see another "X" painted, and Cpt. Morgan stops the man when another cannon is fired. This one wasn't a cannonball though, but rather an arrow anchored by a rope. The two ride this zipline down to the boat and get away safely. We then learn why this prisoner was so important - he has a treasure map tattooed on his back...
