Webvideo: Fairy Tale Friday

Not your mother's fairy tales.

Fairy Tale Friday is a a video series by My Damn Channel featuring a pajama-clad narrator (usually Grace Helbig before Chloe took over) reading out loud from a book of fairy tales as if reading a bedtime story to children.

But these fairy tales are definitely not for children. Strong language, questionable morals, nasty sex, and unsympathetic protagonists abound, and the accompanying illustrations are frequently Not Safe for Work.

In a sense, it can be said that Fairy Tale Friday is a faithful modern continuation of the age-old tradition of the original fairy tales: an oral tradition passed down by women in the common language of the folk.
