A follow-up to meme-worthy classic Bee Movie is undoubtedly the reason the rapture missed its call time for Friday, July 29.

Tempting fate was apparently just enough to stave off the malevolent forces of our collective sins. Bravo, Jerry Seinfeld. We can’t wait for Bee Movie 2, in theaters just before the rapture gets us.
