John Updike has died of lung cancer at the age of 76. He was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who looked deep into the dark heart of our modern malaise. There are plenty of places on the internet to read touching, or at least detailed tributes. We have no such aim. What are books, anyway? You mean menus, right? The book they give you at a restaurant is called a menu. Get it right.
But he is dead now. :(. The least that we can do, literally, is momentarily suspend our fight against fake rap to bring you this incredible homage to the man’s legacy.
Perfect. These guys really nailed it. That video was made in December of 2007, but they already refer to him in the past tense. SPOOKY.
R.I.P. John Updike. You’re up in heaven now, sleeping around on the angels.
