Viral Video: Samuel L. Jackson Reads “Go the F**k to Sleep”

What more is there to say, except this viral video of actor Samuel L. Jackson reading a viral “children’s” book is hysterical.

Written by Adam Mansbach, the book has developed a cult following. It’s more for parents than for their children, of course, in the style of “Everyone Poops.”

While some might be offended by it, I have definitely felt this way too many times over the years trying to put my kids to bed.

[UPDATE: Audible requested I remove the original video clip I had embedded here, as it violated its copyright. I did, of course, immediately and then replaced it with their own below. But fair warning: Audible's is shorter and 87 percent less funny.]
