Kashi Commercial Airs, Makes Lower Half Of My Face Famous

Kashi Commercial Airs, Makes Lower Half Of My Face Famous

The Kashi commercial I beekeepered in started airing today! I have yet to see it “live” since I don’t have real tv service, and the shows I watch on Hulu seem to be exclusively about serial killers or weird british hobbies.

Surprise! Bee’s Cankles, Unlike Bee’s Knees, Kind Of Suck

I’m A Beekeeper, And I Play One On T.V.

I’m A Beekeeper, And I Play One On T.V.

I didn’t think it was relevant to mention that I am a film producer today when I showed up to perform my career-defining, break-out role of “The Beekeeper” in the Kashi commercial. I just wanted to enjoy the novel experience of being on the opposite side of the camera, so I decided to go undercover. […]
