Warning: Do Not Watch This Video - Your Brain May Die


CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED:

Do not watch this book trailer while eating.  Do not let gullible human beings watch this video.  Keep a large barf bag (or small trash can) nearby if you do dare to watch this video.   Consider that the "star" of this video is brain dead, and that the Simon and Schuster executives featured have apparently joined her in that sad condition.


Doesn't this make you want to run right out to a bookstore and see what else Simon and Schuster has on the shelves?  I know I can't wait to visit the publisher's backlist to see what other literary gems I may have missed.

SHAME ON YOU SIMON AND SCHUSTER.  Publishing this trash was not already damaging enough to your reptuation?

  1. What's even sadder is that the people in the video are not actors, but actual Simon & Schuster employees. I'm sure the real authors Snooki was insulting were probably not pleased with her and Simon & Schuster, even though their faces were blurred out.

  2. Oh Sam, I could not agree with you more. It's like stooping to the lowest of lows.
    Shame on you S & S.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald would turn in his grave to see what has become of those who hold exclusive rights to his work.
    And I'm afraid I did not listen to your good advice. I watched this video while eating a nice slab of evening pizza and some mozzarella came out my nose.
    At least I think it's mozzarella.....

  4. At least Italians don't have to be insulted. I am embarrassed that I know this, but she's Chilean.

  5. Library Girl, those are two of the things that disgusted me most about this little piece of tripe.

  7. Well, you've just ruined the day of countless Chileans, Class Factotum. They will be devastated by the news, I'm sure.

  8. As a school teacher, this whole situation saddens me. I guess the question is, have we reached the point of "Bread and Circuses."

    And, I would really love to know if Snookie (the one and only time I will ever type that name) is serious or putting on a role?

  9. Oody, I think that Snookie (it bothers me as much as it bothers you to write that word) has to be putting on to a large degree. I do believe that she's an out-of-control drunk and egomaniac but, surely, no one can be that stupid or so completely lack self-awareness and respect for herself.
