Reading Is Just Not Everyone’s Thing [Video]

Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

Reading is fundamental — fundamentally deadly. At least it is in the world created by Beto Gomes, a graduate of the Vancouver Film School classical animation program. In his short, Reading Kills, the simple act of reading menu items can bring about the grisly death of a person. Now, we don’t encourage anyone to take this to heart. (I am sure as heck not going to stop reading The Hunger Games until I’m done.) But we will warn you about eyestrain. And not taking breaks to relieve yourself and/or eat things. That said, you will still not die from reading. Unless you read the Necronomicon out loud. (Don’t do that.)
