Gone Viral: We Were No Longer “Good Society”

Into a blizzard of literary mash-ups comes what may be the most succinct and amusing one yet: Jane Austen’s Fight Club, a fake trailer for a movie that never-will-be (one hopes!) based on Chuck Palahniuk’s brilliant 1996 debut novel, Fight Club, (made into a movie starring Edward Norton and a then-still-watchable Brad Pitt in 1999) and the special sense and sensibility that is Jane Austen.

Though it could use a bit more blood and pain, the video is funny and quite good, once you get past the mostly dreadful British accents.

Hat tip to the Chicago Tribune.
