Of Course Neil Patrick Harris Sings the ‘Series of Unfortunate Events’ Theme
If Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events was going to hire Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, chances are they’d find a way to let him shine out from under all that makeup. Listen to Count Olaf sing (and look away), as Harris performs the dreadfully Unfortunate theme song for our new Lemony Snicket series.
With all episodes now available to stream, Netflix released the opening credits to Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, featuring Harris himself on vocals, and crooning for viewers to “Look Away.” There’s plenty of clues and easter eggs to discover within the footage as well, as you set about your weekend binge.
And here, have an insane clip while we’re at it:
So reads Netflix’s official synopsis for the series, now available to stream:
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire). The series premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix.
You can hear that theme eight times over by streaming Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix right now, and stay tuned for the latest.
