Jane Austen’s Fight Club Counts 200,000 Views

The video embedded above mashes up two popular but vastly different literary franchises: Chuck Palahniuk‘s Fight Club and the novels of Jane Austen.

Posted three days ago, the video has already logged more than 200,000 views–perhaps some much needed catharsis for frustrated professionals?

If you haven’t read Palahniuk or seen the movie, this trailer will give you a quick introduction to the violent book and film.
