Saucy and Provocative Kardashian Cover Has Been Recreated by Hilarious Librarians

You might not have realized that your new heroes would be the librarians of the Invercargill City Libraries and Archives in Invercargill, New Zealand, but here we are.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Keeping Up With the Kardashians — an occasion every library around the world should commemorate — the Invercargill Library’s social media team recreated the iconic 10-year Kardashian cover of The Hollywood Reporter and officially redefined the “sexy librarian” as “six sexy librarians from New Zealand.”

It’s too good.

Bonnie Mager, the Invercargill Library’s digital and communications manager, told BuzzFeed News that she and her co-workers came up with the idea to create a spoof of the magazine cover during a weekly brainstorm meeting about “how to showcase the library.”

How incredible is this? The “totally impromptu, definitely not planned” magazine cover spoof has garnered over 8,600 likes and 3,500 shares since it was posted on Friday. We’d say that the Invercargill Library’s attempt to showcase itself went pretty well!

Some commented on the fact that these are some good-looking librarians! Bye bye, Kardashians. Helloooo Keeping Up With the Librarians.

Mager concedes that the photoshoot did actually take some planning. Even the books they’re sitting on were carefully considered; they’re old dictionaries from the archive. They “thought it would be funny to include a wee librarian touch.” And they were right!

“We create so much original content that we love, and we can never predict which will go viral and which won’t,” Mager told BuzzFeed News. “The reactions have been so positive. People love the humor of it.”
