While I certainly admire all the must-read lists, this one by Penguin has the worst ad campaign there is. The folks from Penguin who talk about why these books are important: great. The scripted strange interaction between the two actors designed to show us how literature helps us at cocktail parties: HORRIBLE. For the record, this is why I abandoned my acting degree as soon as I got it. I can’t imagine having to do these kind of jobs. And who is this Perez Hilton wanna-be fellow? Is this really supposed to be a date?
WARNING: This will be painful to watch.
