If your sweet tooth is bigger than your sense of dignity, Krispy Kreme has just the deal for you.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day on Monday, Sept. 19, the chain is giving away a free glazed donut to every customer who channels their inner Jack Sparrow. As in years past, customers who come dressed in full pirate regalia will get a dozen free donuts. This year, though, they can make a far saner move, and use Krispy Kreme’s Snapchat pirate filter to digitally “dress” like a pirate and get their free dozen.

Krispy Kreme has offered Talk Like a Pirate Day deals since 2012, but this campaign marks the first time the donut chain has worked with Snapchat on a national campaign, according to a press release. Not to be outdone, the seafood chain Long John Silvers is celebrating the day with a free piece of Alaskan Whitefish or chicken for customers who talk like a pirate, and a free 2 piece fish or chicken basket for those who dress like one.

Talk like a Pirate Day is just one notch on a long list of fake holidays where discounts and free food are up for grabs. Next up: National Coffee Day on September 29.
