Lemony Snicket and the Special Book Delivery
Posted on July 11, 2005
As part of Amazon.com's 10 year celebration, someone came up with the brainwave of having celebrities deliver packages to surprised customers. Nick Lachey delivered DVDs of The Newlyweds to a surprised girl who works up the nerve to tell Nick "You're even hotter in person."
But the funniest video so far is of author Daniel Handler, the "official representative" of the elusive Lemony Snicket, as he shows up at the home of 11-year-old Alex. Handler, formally dressed in a suit and tie, signs Alex's collection of Lemony Snicket books, surreptitiously inquires about the family's security system and then offers to distract Alex's parents with an Amazon.com camera crew so that Alex could run away from home. He then wraps the deliriously happy child in police tape and runs out the door.
