By way of this Moby Awards judge comes the most terrible book trailer of all time. The winner in the worst book trailer category was also pretty terrifically bad, but judge for yourself….
Congrats to all the winners and losers, including Jonathan Franzen, for the Freedom trailer. He got the "worst performance" award.
There's no way the book can be as good as that. Or as long.

If I were a grade 9 English teacher, and I gave my students an assignment to produce a book trailer, I would give that a C+. ("Good effort, needs improvement! You misspelled 'inappropriate'.")
I didn't even know books had trailers. I wish I still didn't.
What's the final hint!
By poisoning my eyes with that first trailer, I regrettably already know 3/4 of the book.
That DeMille trailer was clearly written by a script bot with access to google images. maybe it was originally intended to be one of those way-cool HMTL5/Google Chrome demos, but they ran out of money?
anyway, as Tully says: sinis-
"Once upon a time…there was an FBI agent.."
I find it difficult to believe this is not an Onion parody.
