Another chestnut — fake Werner Herzog reading from ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas. This isn’t the story as you know it. No, this version is dark, packed with bleak social commentary and some witty literary criticism, and shatters all illusions.
Ideally this clip should be watched with faux Werner Herzog reading other children’s classics: Curious George, Madeline, and Where’s Waldo. And then this: the real Werner Herzog reading Go the F**k to Sleep, the 15 minute hit, at The New York Public Library this past June.
