YMMV / Mr. B Natural

From the short:

  • Awesome Moments: A meta-example: Conn-Selmer, Inc. wrote a letter disparaging Indiana's controversial "Religious Freedom Restoration Act", which would have permitted discrimination against gays.
  • Heartwarming Moments: A meta-example: Bruce Podewell, who played Buzz Turner, became a musician and a beloved figure in productions in New Orleans til his death in 2013. What ignited his interest in music? The short, so, yes, Virginia, there really is a Mr. B Natural.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Mr. B Natural.
  • Old Shame:
    • Conn, decades later, admitted responsibility for the short and humorously apologized.
    • Averted completely with Bruce Podewell, who said that the short pushed him to pursue an actual music career.
  • So Bad, It's Good
