Produced by

How to Be a Pirate is a show by ThatGuyWithTheGlasses that debuted on the site on October 21st, 2010. In it, a pirate named Black Dog Bill (who's real name is Howard) tells the viewers proper use and stories about certain aspect's of a pirate clothing and accessories. As the video progresses, he attempts asking the patrons of the bar he at which he shoots the video their opinions on certain matters. When they refuse to socialize with him, Black Dog Bill tells the audience a bit of gossip about said patron. Every video ends with Black Dog Bill telling the people legends of Blood Beard Joe.

Doug has admitted that the reason for creating this show was to build up a role that Black Dog Bill would play in the original idea for the 3rd Year anniversary, then called Ninjas vs Pirates, before it eventually became Suburban Knights.
