Where's The Pirate's Laugh in the Plunge Video?

We heard Blackbeard guffaw among the splashing crew coming ashore at Fisherman's Beach at Tuedsay's plunge.

 

Do you hear Blackbeard in our video of the 2013 Polar Plunge?

Let us know, in the comments box below, the second mark where you hear it. 

The seconds tick off to starboard (right) at the bottom of the video.

You will hear whoops, chuckles, splashes and screams.

You will also hear an "aaaarggghh har-har," the familiar pirate's call.

Blackbeard was a real fellow, according to Wikipedia.

Born Edward Teach, about 1680, he practiced his sea-going thuggery in the West Indies and off the coast of the American colonies.

For all his fearsome appearance — he reportedly wore his beard braded in pigtails and lighted matches under his hat — he ruled with the assent of his crew. And there is no documentation that he ever harmed a captive.

He seemed to revel in the cold water on Tuesday at Fisherman's Beach.

Do you hear him?

Aye, I heard it. But since I'm a Patch crewmember, I'll let other folks mark the exact second.

I think I picked it up at 38 secs.
