Honey Nut Cheerios has been hard at work filming a funny entertainment video with Funny or Die, a comedy website started by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy. The stars of the video? None other than comedian Andy Richter (Conan’s late night sidekick) and Buzz himself – an unlikely but hilarious pair!
The full video, which debuts July 31, spoofs Honey Nut Cheerios’ current TV ad, in which the innocuous Buzz travels across the country spreading news that Honey Nut Cheerios is America’s favorite cereal.* During the video, titled, “Scared of Bees,” Buzz has a not-so-sweet encounter with Richter’s character and later tries to help him overcome his fear of bees.
I watched the video teaser, and laughed. This is going to be so funny. I can’t wait to see the whole thing.
