Kafka Shows Up in a Toilet Paper Commercial

In perhaps the strangest literary cameo of the year, a Franz Kafka book surfaced in a commercial for Charmin toilet paper.

In a series of interviews with animated bears about their bathroom habits, one young bear holds up a copy of Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and remarks, “Sometimes I like to bring a book.” We’ve embedded the video below–what do you think?

If you want to read Kafka’s great book, you can download a free copy. We also recommend you get a free copy of The Trial as well.
