We’re very happy to offer a first look at the trailer for Brooks Headley’s first book, Fancy Desserts. In a move consistent with the utter predictability of most of his work, Headley has put together a video that features everything you’ve come to expect from video promoting a pastry book: men kissing, overtures to satanic worship, a dapper Italian man massaging a lump of Jell-O.
The handsome host is none other than the one-time Sassy hearththrob and ex-patriot of the Nation of Ulysses Ian Svenonius. The video was reputedly made by Eric Wareheim, once featured in the pages of our fine magazine jamming a whole quail into his mouth, who puppetmasters many forms of entertainment that you should seek out, including this cooking show and The Eric Andre Show, which is the very apotheosis of what a late night show could ever aspire to.
We will have more to say about Mr. Headley’s book later this week. Go buy it in the meantime—there’s nothing more punk than buying a book online!
