Jersey Shore Meets Oscar Wilde

Tired of reading about Jersey Shore book deals? Literature has finally struck back.

In the video embedded above, two stars of an Oscar Wilde play on Broadway launched a video series–reading Jersey Shore dialogue in the style of Wilde’s play.

Here’s more about the video: “What if the characters of Broadway’s The Importance of Being Earnest traveled through a time warp and woke up on the beach with Snooki, The Situation and the rest of the gang of MTV’s Jersey Shore? In an exclusive video series created for Playbill by ‘Earnest’ stars Santino Fontana and David Furr, the Roundabout Theatre Company cast puts ‘Jersey’ in the mouths of Oscar Wilde’s famed Britons. Think of it as a comedy of bad manners.” (Via)
