Why is the bee movie script a meme? The origin of bee movie memes explained


Hey Now! Internet and welcome to Behind The Meme, where
we take a look at the meaning and the origin of your favorite memes and trends! Today we have a look at, The bee movie script. Now I thought this meme was dead and over
with, so I was shocked to see many of my viewers in the last couple videos request this topic. I was even more shocked to see that not only
was the meme not dead, but it was trending higher than it ever had. So I knew that I had to get to making the
video that you guys wanted to see. Thank you all so very much for your suggestions! Keep em coming! Who knows your comment may be in the next
video! You wanted it now you have it, Here. We. GO! So some of you may be confused with this topic. If you’re new to the world of memes or just
a part time meme lover you may be shocked to hear that the script to the animated film
“The bee movie”, is a meme. You know the 2007 family film about bees staring
Jerry seinfeld and renee zellweger—Wait…that’s what renee zellweger looks like now? what the hell happened? I don’t understand, I don’t understand. but don’t worry if you didn’t see the
movie, you didn’t miss much.it’s Just a movie in which the plot of the film revolves
around a bee who attempts to sue the human race for our treatment of bees and stealing
their honey, all while falling in love with a human…yeah, I couldn’t make that shit
up even if I wanted to. But to be fair, if you didn’t see the film
that doesn’t mean you can’t be a fan of it. In fact, that’s what this whole video is
about. Since the films initial release, the movie’s
script has become a popular meme online. first gaining a following on Tumblr, with
many users posting the various ways they are able to incorporate the text in ironic and
funny ways. but eventually the use of the script spread
across the internet being used in various humorous and bizarre ways. The script is what is known as a copy pasta,
Most commonly used in shit posting which is typically when people attempt to derail a
forum post or online conversation by leaving a comment that has nothing to do with the
subject at hand. In this case people would post the entirety
of the script when the original topic had nothing to do with it. leaving many people confused and wondering
what the hell just happened and the others who are in on the joke amused by the action. but since the original posting of the bee
movie script copy pastas ,the script has been used in popular videos. one of which is a
video where the entire script is read by Youtuber Brendaniel, in his epic buttery smooth voice. “According to all know laws of aviation
there is no way a bee should be able to fly its wings are too fat to get its fat little
body off the ground. The bee of course flies anyways.” That video has gained over 400,000 views. Now this is where it gets even stranger. The bee movie has also been made into other
video memes. Every type of popular edit you can imagine
has been made using the bee movie. Of course we have the entire bee movie but
instead of the regular voice actors it is all the voices are replaced with Brendaniels
reading. which I have to admit I found to be pretty
clever and funny. “Barry breakfast is ready. coming. Hang on a second. hello barry, adam.”and of course we have
the bee movie trailer, but every time somebody says the word bee the trailer speeds up and
finishes before continuing back at the spot it was at before speeding up. “humans have misunderstood them and feared
them, now one bee” Speeds up “In a turtle neck sweater is gonna change everything. Bee!” Speedup and of course we have the entire bee
movie but it is played at faster speed, condensing the film into 3 minutes. At least now we can all say we’ve seen the
movie. That video has gained over 770,000 views since
Halloween of 2016. 770,000 you guys… It’s official The internet is a weird place. These are just a handful of the notable examples
of the bee movie memes. They go on and on and on and on. The reason behind all this absurd insanity
is simple. It’s Absurd…and insane. Two characteristics that memes, especially
ironic memes, often thrive on. And to take a movie that is already ridiculous
and edit it to be more ridiculous equals meme heaven But Hey! That’s the internet for you and on the internet
memes are Keeeng! Thank you all so very much for watching make

  1. According to all known laws
    of aviation,
    there is no way a bee
    should be able to fly.
    Its wings are too small to get
    its fat little body off the ground.
    The bee, of course, flies anyway
    because bees don't care
    what humans think is impossible.
    Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
    Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
    Ooh, black and yellow!
    Let's shake it up a little.
    Barry! Breakfast is ready!
    Ooming!
    Hang on a second.
    Hello?
    – Barry?
    – Adam?
    – Oan you believe this is happening?
    – I can't. I'll pick you up.
    Looking sharp.
    Use the stairs. Your father
    paid good money for those.
    Sorry. I'm excited.
    Here's the graduate.
    We're very proud of you, son.
    A perfect report card, all B's.
    Very proud.
    Ma! I got a thing going here.
    – You got lint on your fuzz.
    – Ow! That's me!
    – Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000.
    – Bye!
    Barry, I told you,
    stop flying in the house!
    – Hey, Adam.
    – Hey, Barry.
    – Is that fuzz gel?
    – A little. Special day, graduation.
    Never thought I'd make it.
    Three days grade school,
    three days high school.
    Those were awkward.
    Three days college. I'm glad I took
    a day and hitchhiked around the hive.
    You did come back different.
    – Hi, Barry.
    – Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good.
    – Hear about Frankie?
    – Yeah.
    – You going to the funeral?
    – No, I'm not going.
    Everybody knows,
    sting someone, you die.
    Don't waste it on a squirrel.
    Such a hothead.
    Bee Movie Script.jpg Wow.
    We know that you, as a bee,
    have worked your whole life
    to get to the point where you
    can work for your whole life.
    Honey begins when our valiant Pollen
    Jocks bring the nectar to the hive.
    Our top-secret formula
    is automatically color-corrected,
    scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured
    into this soothing sweet syrup
    with its distinctive
    golden glow you know as…
    Honey!
    – That girl was hot.
    – She's my cousin!
    – She is?
    – Yes, we're all cousins.
    – Right. You're right.
    – At Honex, we constantly strive
    to improve every aspect
    of bee existence.
    These bees are stress-testing
    a new helmet technology.
    – What do you think he makes?
    – Not enough.
    Here we have our latest advancement,
    the Krelman.
    – What does that do?
    – Oatches that little strand of honey
    that hangs after you pour it.
    Saves us millions.
    Oan anyone work on the Krelman?
    Of course. Most bee jobs are
    small ones. But bees know
    that every small job,
    if it's done well, means a lot.
    But choose carefully
    because you'll stay in the job
    you pick for the rest of your life.
    The same job the rest of your life?
    I didn't know that.
    What's the difference?
    You'll be happy to know that bees,
    as a species, haven't had one day off

  3. Dude, I watched "Bee Movie" when I was like eight or nine. I liked its (kinda) ecological message, but the whole thing about a bee beeing (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?!!?!?!!???!!) in love with a human seemed strange to me even at that age. It's so weird seeing it as a meme now.
