Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming series 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events'. And it's far from your standard teaser fare.

It's pretty meta. It features Lemony (Patrick Warburton, who played David Puddy in 'Seinfeld') walking through the darkened set where the series is being filmed. During his stroll, he delivers a monologue warning viewers not to watch the series when it launches on January 17th.

He explains that usually the set would be buzzing with activity, but because the story of the Baudelaire orphans is so upsetting, "the entire crew is suffering from low morale."

All except for Neil Patrick Harris, that is. He plays Count Olaf, the orphans' sinister guardian and nemesis. He can be heard off-screen singing: "Joy, joy, happiness, my fortune's about to change."

The 13-part series is based on the 13 books written by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of Daniel Handler, who will act as executive producer).
