Hunter S. Thompson and Kafka subject of animated GoodBooks tribute

An animated tribute to Hunter S. Thompson is dark, trippy and a little bit disturbing — and that’s exactly how he would have preferred it, according to the folks at GoodBooks. The online bookseller commissioned animators at Buck TV to create this tribute to “the high priest of Gonzo,” with a little bit of Kafka’s Metamorphosis thrown in for good measure.

“This is an entirely fictional and completely unendorsed representation (Though we humbly suggest Hunter S. might have liked it),” they write. Do you agree?

GoodBooks donates all profits to Oxfam, which works to provide water, sanitation and education to impoverished communities around the world.
