Fear and Loathing in America

I have long been a fan of the outrageous gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. More recently I found myself binge watching the television show Succession which stars the great Scotish actor Brian Cox. So I was tickled to stumble on the short video below in which Cox reads a profanity laced letter writen by Thompson to a television news executive.

The video is from a British series called Letters Live. The project’s YouTube channel offer numerous letters read by actors like Olivia Coleman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Matt Berry, Carey Mulligan, Gillian Anderson, Ian McKellen, and many more.

NB: if the video doesn’t appear, please click on the short url at the bottom. And, the clip is definitely NSFW.
