LeVar Burton is the King of the Fire Throne in a new promo for his "Reading Rainbow" reboot, brought to you by Funny or Die. High off the success of his Kickstarter, which crowdfunded its goal of $1 million in less than 24 hours, Burton has "become a God" who is "mad with power." The man shoots rainbows out of his hands, then blasted all the books, and now sits atop a firey post-apolyptic barren wasteland of hardbacks and paperbacks. This is America's future.
