'Rework' Authors Launch Satiric Attack Ad Against Karl Rove (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Via Gawker, here's this hilarious video clip from 37Signals proprietors Jason Friedman and and David Heinemeier Hansson. Having noticed that Karl Rove's new tome, "Courage And Consequence", had jumped past their own book, "Rework", into the top spot on the Amazon.com bestsellers list, the two authors struck back with a pitch-perfect attack ad, assailing Rove's book for being too long, too heavy, too pricey and too fond of French fonts.

WATCH:

This will stand as my favorite bit of "Courage And Consequence"-inspired satire until Seth Grahame-Smith finally gets around to writing "Courage And Consequence And Lycanthropes".
