“How I Met Your Mother” actor Barney Stinson, oops, we meant Neil Patrick Harris, stars as the eccentric Count Olaf in Netflix’s adaption of “A Series Of Unfortunate Events”.


Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket aka Daniel Handler, the 8-episode series has finally dropped its trailer. And though fans won’t see Count Olaf in the promo clip, they will be able to hear him sing frantically.

The trailer begins with Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) talking about the unfortunate tale of the Baudelaire children (Violet, Klaus, and Sunny). In a miserable and witty manner, he urges viewers to watch anything but the series, as even the production crew is “suffering from low morale”. During his monologue, he was interrupted by Count Olaf’s manic singing.

“Joy, Joy, Happiness. My fortune is about to change.”

As a final warning, Lemony Snicket said:

“So please, don’t make the same mistakes that Netflix has and look away before this dire tale is even filmed and avoid the cruel whimsy and whimsical cruelty of what’s to come.”

Aren’t you just curious to meet the children and Count Olaf now? 🙂
