Someone watched Bee Movie 357 times on Netflix in 2017

Kirsten Howard Dec 11, 2017

Shout out to the UK subscriber who watched Bee Movie 357 times this year. Your dedication has been duly noted by Netflix...

Bee Movie, the 2007 animated meme generator, has a very committed UK fan. Someone so enamoured by the adventures of Barry B. Benson, that in 2017 they were willing to spend 32,487 minutes of their time rewatching the film on Netflix.

Netflix, for their part, did not want this devotion to go unsung, so this week they specifically acknowledged the bee-witched viewer and created a little buzz (I'm sorry) surrounding the, er, achievement, by including the factoid in their 2017 'Year In Review'.

The Jerry Seinfeld-starring flick could have been consumed once a day, or for almost 24 days continuously. No one knows, as the streaming giant are naturally keeping the person's identity anonymous, and further details under wraps.

Oh, and Netflix also released a bunch of Top 10 lists, but

Happy 10th anniversary to Bee Movie, which is somehow still a thing

It’s been 10 years since Bee Movie—a movie most notable for how Jerry Seinfeld wouldn’t shut the fuck up about it—flew into theaters and stung us with its lack of memorable jokes and characters. It should’ve ended there, but some wiseass had to cut it “20000x faster” and inspire an endless litany of memes that include …

DreamWorks Animation's The Croods 2 is finally back on the right track after the studio set a new release date for the animated sequel last month. Today the studio has set Joel Crawford to make his feature directorial debut with The Croods 2, after serving as head of story on the studio's Trolls and directing the new TV special DreamWorks Trolls Holiday, which was announced this week and will debut on NBC Wednesday, November 24.

Beautiful, inspirational mural confuses David Spade for Kurt Cobain

In the race-to-the-bottom rhetoric of much internet humor, you don’t need a setup or a punchline, you just need a meme, the easier and dumber the better. Rickrolls and “All-Star” and Bee Movie are their own fully structured jokes, and the less funny their context, the better. They are designed to be infuriating.

’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix

’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix
Picking favorites when it comes to “30 Rock” is an awful proposition because the whole series, barring a handful of exceptions, remains an extremely watchable and fascinating comedic journey. But with the show leaving Netflix at the beginning of October (and thus becoming completely unstreamable), we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to choose favorites.

Twenty-five episodes equates to less than 10 hours, so you should be able to make the time before September 30. And the adventures of Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and beyond are worth it.

“Tracy Does Conan

Season 1, Episode 7

The first season of “30 Rock” was a bit rocky, but “Tracy Does Conan” does a few important things: It introduces Dr. Leo Spaceman (Chris Parnell), casts Conan O’Brien as himself, and features Aubrey Plaza as an NBC page (a job she actually held in real life). More importantly, it features a breathless sense of anarchy,

Hugh Jackman Says Jerry Seinfeld Convinced Him to Stop Playing Wolverine

While Hugh Jackman was wrestling with the decision of whether to continue playing Wolverine for awhile, he says it was comedian Jerry Seinfeld who convinced him to hang it up after Logan! The actor recalls talking to Seinfeld two years ago about why he decided to end Seinfeld after so many seasons on top, and said Seinfeld responded with the following:

"Look, when you're creating something it's very important not to run yourself dry. It's not about finishing on top necessarily, but making sure you creatively got something left, which propels you into whatever is next. "

Weirdly enough, we covered this story two years ago when he told that same story on Michael and Kelly, and the story has changed in the two years he's been telling it! For example, Jackman says in the first interview that finishing on top is important, but then says it's not important in his telling to Fallon.

Great Job, Internet!: Idea Channel explains Bee Movie memes via exasperating Bee Movie meme

Clear a path, people, because there’s a new meme in town. The Verge calls them “technical memes,” while Know Your Meme dubs the new phenomenon a “word replacement remix.” Basically, you take a piece of existing art (Bee Movie, for example), then alter it somehow based off a particular word or trigger. There’s YouTube user Avoid At All Costs’ “The entire bee movie but every time they say bee it gets faster,” which is self-explanatory. There’s also That One Ghost Named Asdfghjkl’s “The Bee Movie But Without Bees,” which is also self-explanatory. Now, Idea Channel has given us the epitome of all Bee Movie memes with “The Bee Movie But Every Time They Say Bee We Explain The Deal With Bee Movie,” which is self-explanatory both in name and conception.

Video Essay Explores the Weirdness of Bee Movie Memes and Why Certain Source Material Becomes Meme-ified

Since I spend most of my time writing about movies and television, I don't have a ton of time to keep up with meme culture. But apparently there's been an influx of memes involving Bee Movie recently (actually, this might have been going on for years, as far as I know), and PBS Idea Channel is here to explain why that particular movie has become a go-to film for meme-ificiation. And why do people consistently use "Smash Mouth" or "Smooth" in ridiculous meme videos these days? This video tries to get to the bottom of that, too. I found the results to be enlightening, and in a nice twist, this video itself has become an entry in the bizarre Bee Movie meme subculture because it's the entire movie, but every time the word "bee" is said, the video essay plays in its entirety.

Head Of Animation Hyrum Osmond And Story Artist David Derrick Jr on Disney's latest: Moana

  • Cinelinx
Moana is the story of a young Polynesian heir ineffably drawn to the one thing that her community opposes: venturing out into the ocean, like the little mermaid was so drawn to land, like a monster to Boo, and like an ambitious rat was to the culinary arts.

Moana Head of Animation Hyrum Osmand (Zootopia, Frozen, Wreck It Ralph, Tangled) and Story Artist David Derrick Jr. (How To Train Your Dragon, Flushed Away, Bee Movie) talked with the press in a roundtable before speaking to the visual arts students at the University of Denver. Tucked away in a corner of the university, David tapped into what made Moana so personal to him, allowing him to segue easily into the film’s themes of Polynesian ancestry and culture while Hyrum explored the unique challenges this particular film offered Disney’s elite animators.

Here's the Entirety of Bee Movie Except When They Say Bee the Film Speeds Up

There's this weird meme circulating the internet right now where films are being sped up every time a keyword is said, and it's pretty hilarious!

I don't know why so many people slightly younger than me ironically idolize the film, but I do know this video makes me laugh. See the entirety of Bee Movie sped up when someone says "bee" below.

Great Job, Internet!: Akira, but it’s just people yelling “Tetsuo” and “Kaneda” the whole time

Akira is a great, weird film—a visionary piece of cyberpunk fiction and one of the sharpest, most engaging animated films ever produced. In it, two best friends named Tetsuo and Kaneda square off, eventually engaging in an explosive, cataclysmic duel. They also spend an awful lot of time screaming each other’s names. Here is a version of them exclusively doing that:

You can easily trace the narrative of the full film in the video. At first it’s all Kaneda concernedly saying “Tetsuo” as he’s bullied and hurt, but eventually Tetsuo finds his voice—sneering, gloating, and finally bubbling over in despair as his power consumes him.

It’s a fun reason to revisit a great animated movie. If looking for a fun reason to revisit a terrible animated movie, check out all these breathtakingly stupid supercuts of Bee Movie that are making the rounds.

Great Job, Internet!: People are inexplicably flocking to watch Bee Movie at “20,000X speed”

The 2007 Dreamworks animation Bee Movie is not a good movie. It is also not a remarkable movie—“amusing but slight,” The A.V. Club raved upon its original release.

However, this general lack of luster has not stopped some 700,000 people from viewing a YouTube video called “Bee Movie But It’s 20000x Faster,” which has since been renamed “Bee Movie But It’s In 3 Minutes” to be more accurate. (Twenty thousand times faster would be less than a second, technically.) Here’s the whole damn thing:

As one commenter dryly—but accurately!—notes:

There is not much to be gleaned from the movie at this speed; it is Bee Movie, after all. But that’s also the whole point. Bee Movie’s inspired something of a cottage industry of low-rent memes, perhaps because, by combining Jerry Seinfeld and DreamWorks Animation, it creates a perfect storm of ...
