The video, which someone was smart enough to savour before it disappeared from YouTube, shows the former The Hills star butcher author Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events to make a handy storage unit that looks like a bunch of books.
LC cuts the spines off the novels before neatly knifing out all their pages, sticking said spines on a sparkly white box and then proclaiming it to be a "great way to display vintage books or slightly used books".
One BuzzFeed writer commented, "This is the perfect idea for someone who likes to pretend that they read. I feel like I'm watching a murder." And a Huffington Post books editor claimed the clip showed "what not to do with books".
Entertainment website Jezabel had a problem with the use of the phrase "vintage books" seeing as the first novel in Snicket's series was published in 1999.
But hey, that's like a whole 13 years ago. Totes vintage babe!
Culture website Slate responded to what they called the "gruesome atrocity" by contacting Lemony Snicket for comment.
"It has always been my belief that people who spent too much time with my work end up as lost souls, drained of reason, who lead lives of raving emptiness and occasional lunatic violence. What a relief it is to documented," said the author, whose real name is Daniel Handler.
