Outspoken comedian Neil Hamburger, a Tim & Eric favorite, has taken it upon himself to launch an anti-Yogi Bear tirade on his @neil_hamburger Twitter account. Neil doesn’t mince words in his explicit bursts of disgust over the live action/animated hybrid featuring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake as the voices of Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively. I’ve picked out a few gems that nicely sum up his overall feelings, and might reflect some of the hate you experience upon subsequent viewings of the trailer and/or commercial. Check out 10 favorites below:
Hey there, it’ Yogi Bear! (Stealing bowel movements from the Beverly Hilton and eating them.)
Tom Bosley’s dying final words: “Please don’t let Aykroyd voice Yogi Bear.” Died 1 min later.
Gene Siskel to return from dead with one-off, half-star film review of “Yogi Bear.”
Patch Adams and Yogi Bear to team up to teach children the value of drinking ammonia-based cleansers.
So sad to see Dan Aykroyd sink so low…I have admired him since seeing his groundbreaking work in Britney Spears‘ “Crossroads” movie.
“Yogi Bear” becomes first film to be banned in Poland since “Hitler’s Giant Cock And Great Ideas Also” was banned from theaters in 1967.
Taco Bell to put Aykroyd and Timberlake’s feces into refried beans during December to help prepare fans for experience of watching film.
George W. Bush in “Decision Points”: “Say what you will, but no Yogi Bear movie was released during my 8-year Presidency.”
(CNN): Popov Vodka to sponsor asphyxiation of children heard complaining about Yogi Bear movie on school playgrounds.
Yep, that about sums it up. I’ve decided against railing on Yogi Bear anymore since it clearly wasn’t made for my demographic, but can I bask in other people’s spot-on impressions? Does a bear sh*t in the woods?
