Watch: Werner Herzog rivals Samuel L. Jackson with his reading of “Go the Fuck to Sleep”

Pin it

Samuel L. Jackson may have read it first, but Werner Herzog gives him some stiff competition with his rendition of everyone's favorite children's book, Go the Fuck to Sleep. Listen to his dulcet voice, as he implores your child to just get to bed already. And look, pretty pictures.

If Herzog's distinctly German intonation doesn't lull the young 'uns to slumber, then you're pretty much screwed. Besides, what better way to introduce your kid to one of the finest narrators and filmmakers around? You'll be instilling them with high-brow taste. And possibly nightmares.
