Go the F*** to Sleep Spawns Homemade Video Trend

Samuel L. Jackson earned hundreds of thousands of downloads last week when he read Go the F*** to Sleep for Audible. In addition, YouTube users have watched his reading nearly 20,000 times.

Adam Mansbach‘s profane children’s book for adults has spawned a number of unofficial videos on YouTube as well. These earnest readers have earned hundreds of thousands of views, sharing the book with a new online audience.

We’ve embedded a few video book readings below, but beware: ALL THESE VIDEOS CONTAIN NSFW LANGUAGE.

Moonray earned 277,000 views for his reading of the book–complete with some bedtime music.

Cobra Commander sat down with the book as well.

MeRebelNZ read the book with cozy accent–earning 42,000 views.
