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

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!

    The film sounds cute, but there is a thing called over-promotion. This film defines it.

    I am so sick of this “Bee Movie” promotion AND his wife’s dumb cookbook. Can we say oversaturated?
    “A Bug’s Life” and “Antz” did this five years ago. Done.

    i have a 7 year old and even SHE doesn’t want to see it. the nbc promos are HORRIBLE and, for the most part, unfunny.

  • Jill

    I either mute the TV or flick to another channel when I see this come on.

  • Stephen

    For this much promotion, the film better be flawless.

  • Bobby Rowe

    A Bugs Life and Antz were closer to 10 years ago. I point this out not to be a jerk but to say HOLY COW I”M OLD.

  • LuLu

    I hate these spots. HATE them. NBC, needs to drop them.

  • Jay

    Not only do I dislike these spots, but I also have zero interest in the movie. Enough is enough.

  • Aaron

    Those spots really sting.
    Seriously though, they’re painfully unfunny and the “painfully” is exaggerated b/c it’s Jerry and he’s usually not soooo far off base. I have to leave the room when these come on b/c they’re so bad it makes me uncomfortable.

  • Andy

    I’m not a fan of the spots, either. They take up valuble commercial time! Seriously, though, they are getting irritating, but I still want to see the movie; that hasn’t been dampered by these.
    And isn’t this pretty much what Jerry and Jack agreed to on the 30 Rock premiere? Unlimited Bee Movie promotions on NBC? It was something like that, right?

  • Kirby

    I didn’t need to see 10 hours of crapppy ads–I could have guessed this would be a totally crappy movie just from hearing the plot.
    Why do people watch ads anyway? It’s called the mute button. Or, change channels.

  • Ceballos

    I actually wanted to check it out UNTIL they started running these stupid “Juniors” things. Nice job making me not want to see something I was already going to see, Seinfeld.

  • stephen

    Slezak should do a post about “The Movie I Hate That I Haven’t Seen” like the similar one of ‘Psyche’ he did a few weeks ago
