Oh, look! Nelly found the Honey Nut Cheerios bee in his kitchen.
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, so I may or may not have started looking for a pick-me-up that wouldn’t cost any calories or money. And guess what, I FOUND IT! It’s Nelly‘s UNREAL Honey Nut Cheerios commercial, where not only does he willingly wear an all-white-everything tracksuit, but he has a full-on convo with the Honey Nut Cheerios bee (who, fun fact, is actually named “Buzz Bee”). And did we mention that the clip is called “Bee Got Swag”? Somebody put that on a T-shirt, STAT!
Watch Nelly’s Honey Nut Cheerios commercial after the jump.
So, how would Nelly go about changing up a cartoon bee’s swag? Well, here goes: Nelly wakes up in the morning, walks into his top-of-the-line stainless-steel kitchen, and greets Buzz Bee, the official Honey Nut Cheerios mascot. Buzz asks Nelly if he’s ever tried Honey Nut Cheerios, to which Nelly replies that, yes, actually, he has tried it. But here’s what the “Get Like Me” singer has an issue with: Buzz’s baseline swag levels are MAJORLY subpar.
Anyway, one thing leads to another, and Nelly’s giving Buzz a full-fledged swag makeover! Now the artist formerly known as Buzz Bee is clad head-to-toe in all-black-everything. It’s Swaggy Bee! And just to ensure that Swaggy will always and forever be the dopest bee in the hive, Nelly also Auto-Tunes his voice. (#NiceTouch) So, what’s the moral here? Eat Honey Nut Cheerios so you can sing and dress like Nelly? Well, maybe that’s a stretch… but RACE YOU TO THE NEAREST GROCERY STORE!
Nelly, working his swag magic…
Looking fierce, bee.
