Werner Herzog, my favorite living being on the face of the planet, has released his latest film online. Clocking in at two minutes and 17 seconds in length, it is narrated and co-edited by Herzog, and it is an ad for a Kickstarter for salt. Because of course it is. And because it's Herzog, of course it contains more humanity and charm and greatness than 99.99 percent of feature-length films. It will make you want to buy his buddy's salt, and it also contains Werner Herzog pronouncing the words "organic food," which is something everyone should hear.
In conclusion, Werner Herzog: STILL THE GREATEST.
