Alestorm’s ‘Drink’ Video Premieres and is Awesome [Video]

I love the band Alestorm, those crazy "Bacon Powered Pirate Core" guys from Scotland!  

They've got a new album, "Sunset on the Golden Age,"which comes out next week, and the first song they've let out for it is this amazing song titled "Drink!" 

I think they're going for the hearts of all radio people out there, honestly!

What more could you ask for from a video? Pirates, pirate ships, gallons of alcohol, proper ladies stripping down and dancing on a table, musicians totally playing instruments that don't match the sounds, partying, messes...this video has it all!
