Pirates on the east coast of Africa aren’t Britney Spears’ fans. So much so that would be plundering pirates quickly move away from ships that blare her hits.

This weapon is used when Somali raiders ignore initial instructions to move away from cargo ships, according to an article published on MSN. Security teams accompanying supertankers utilize huge on-deck speakers to blast out tracks including “…Baby One More Time” and “Oops! I Did It Again.”

“These guys can’t stand western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect,” British Merchant Navy officer Rachel Owens explained.

This Halloween whenever I see a kid in a pirates costume approaching the house I’m going to start playing Britney and see if these pirates scare as easily.
