'Bee Movie TV Juniors': I mean WHAT is the DEAL with THESE?!

Posted on


Bee_lI’ve kind of had it with Bee Movie‘s “TV Juniors” ad segments, hosted by Jerry Seinfeld at his fake desk (pictured), that keep running on NBC. (The “B” in “NBC” stands for “Jerry Seinfeld” now, by the way.) It’s admirable that he and his minions have put out about 700 promos at this point, but isn’t there a point where enough is enough? The campaign started out so strong, but I feel at this point I’ve been over-saturated with a suffocating nectar comprised of way-too-long improv bits and seemingly delicious animated honey. Most of the spots, which feature guest stars like Ray Liotta, Matthew Broderick, and DreamWorks honcho Jeffrey Katzenberg, seem better-suited for FunnyOrDie or YouTube than actual TV. So I wonder: Do the “TV Juniors” make you want to see Bee Movie more or less?

Oh, and can anyone say “Taking the bait”?

Me! I can!
