No well-rounded pirate would be complete without his vices. The key to tobacco realism reflective of the late 1600's buccaneering lifestyle was provided by International Oddities the Herbal Smoking Company.

“We were very pleased to have the opportunity to play a small part in the tobacco-related requirements of the movie production team's desire for realism,” states Bill Black, International Oddities spokesman.

Birds of a feather flock together. It seems this old adage is apropos when it comes to this summer's much anticipated blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The herbal tobacco masters International Oddities contributed in their unique way to aid in the film's stylistically specialized tobacco herbal needs. Result: two leaders in their own fields working together to fire a creative cannonball that will spark the public's imagination.

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), the main character in the pirate-themed action-adventure series is with us once again, and zealous fans will now be sated once more in this sequel and 4th Pirates movie. The elaborate set designs, costuming, and special effects will be greatly enhanced beyond already spectacularly high standards from prior films due to the latest leaps in 3-D technology. This flamboyant pirate sports all the necessary pirate apparatus, as Depp has continually developed his lead character throughout the previous 3 movies.

The Pirates of the Caribbean movies are romantic and sugarcoated action tales of an era when nefarious and ruthless outlaws ravaged the Caribbean oceans, centering around Captain Jack Sparrow and his exploits. The 4th in the series finds Jack on another wild adventure searching for the fabled Fountain of Youth, teamed with Capt. Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), while in a race against Blackbeard (Ian McShane) and his daughter (Penelope Cruz), whom he has crossed paths with before. With slightly more emphasis on Jack Sparrow's romantic interests than in prior films, Penelope Cruz's steamy portrayal will surely light up an already hot story line.

Similar to the way Johnny Depp's original portrayal of Jack Sparrow, the swashbuckling updated version of the classic pirate, was (at least at first) too much for the movie studios to grasp, so has International Oddities legal bud products and contributions to the herbal smoking market blown the lid off of traditional smoking concepts. The smoking industry, while initially baffled at the lack of a conventional reference for innovation in an age old art, ultimately acquiesced and has highly praised the once often misunderstood innovators of the herbal tobacco kingdom, International Oddities.

“We were very pleased to have the opportunity to play a small part in the tobacco-related requirements of the movie production team's desire for realism,” states Bill Black, International Oddities spokesman.

Just like Mr Depp's visionary conception of a pirate modeled loosely after the famous and infamous Keith Richards ultimately drew Mr. Richards into the film, so were International Oddities smoke shop herbs drawn into the movie for their original innovative appeal as if by an act of creative synchronicity. As artists and innovators (Depp excelling in both categories) often do, they redefine long-standing traditional icons or practices, and modernize them in a way that breathes new life into old, sometimes stagnant belief structures or outmoded caricatures.

In a perfect World, if the artistically inclined have their way, the general public gains the eye-opening benefit of a newer inspired vision of what is possible. As with Pirates of the Caribbean 4, the creative process excels insuring the perpetuation of a satisfied public - through innovation, fantasy, a dash of intuition, Johnny Depp .... or all of the above, in what will surely be the most successful sequel of any major feature film to come along in years.

International Oddities products have been used in dozens of major feature films including Pineapple Express, Leaves of Grass, High School, Crash, Knocked Up, The Wackness, and now Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

International Oddities sells to the RYO (Roll Your Own) consumer. For more than 25 years they have been hailed by the industry as the future of smoking in America and abroad. Their patented packaging and innovative cigarette boxes at are geared towards the sophisticated smoker who insists on a unique experience.
