Animated Short of the Day: Good Books, an online book retailer that donates all its proceeds to Oxfam, recently collaborated with NYC-based creative studios Buck and Antfood to create this trippy promo based on the works of Franz Kafka and Hunter S. Thompson.

In a disclaimer, the company notes that the video is not endorsed by either estates, but they "humbly suggest" Thompson would have liked it. Considering there is enough contact high in this short to kill a wild horse, I'd say they're probably right.
