HE’S committed to one more season on the pitch, but maybe Irish rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll is considering making an appearance in the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie.

As part of the promotional campaign for this year’s Lions tour, BOD has appeared dressed in full naval attire for a new video.

The naval theme was chosen to reflect that this year marks 125 years since the British and Irish Lions first sailed to Australia for the legendary tour.

The new ad also features fellow Irish man Willie John McBride alongside head coach Warren Gatland.

The clip sees the players warm up with scrums and line-outs on board the creaking ship.

Band The Pogues recorded the music which features during the minute long video.

The video is part of a broader YouTube campaign which will see more exclusive content streamed online as the tour commences.
