This is a trailer for a book? That’s a thing that exists? The book is called Vacation, and it’s by Deb Olin Unferth and it comes out from McSweeney’s this fall. The trailer was animated by Scott Bateman, but what’s important here is that Maria Bamford does all the voices. The Bammer, you guys. You wish she was your girlfriend.
Obviously, Videogum does not support reading. Our motto is “If you’ve got time to read, you’ve got time to watch trampoline accidents.” But when Alexander Payne options this and turns it into a dark comedy about the dissatisfaction of bourgeois life starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, we will happily post the trailer under the heading “Being White Is Hard!: Part 100.” That is our promise to you.
