New ​​Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Ads Channel Star Wars

The official YouTube page for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS launched several news ads last week.

Since the show’s announcement back in September, fans of Samantha Bee have had to satisfy themselves with her massive lady balls while awaiting Full Frontal‘s premiere in February. The former Daily Show correspondent has kept busy on social media, but aside from a single ad, her new TBS show has been keeping a low marketing profile — until now.

The show’s official YouTube page posted footage from Bee’s New York Comic-Con panel, an older “Sausage Party” ad, and three new ads. One of these offers viewers a look at her “Trump Stamp,” but the other two hired actor James Earl Jones to narrate them.

“Oh my god it’s James Earl Jones!” she exclaims, adding: “I hope you know how expensive that promo was.”

Jones quips back, “I’m worth every penny.”

The second ad with Jones’ narration, titled “The Wait Is Over,” makes use of the actor famous for voicing Star Wars villain Darth Vader — as well as the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens — to promote Full Frontal. And by “promote,” what I actually mean is “give the comedian a lightsaber-like sword so that she can inadvertently kill a bar filled with aliens.”

“Who puts bullets in a sword?” she asks amidst the carnage.

“I just want to do a comedy show,” says Bee. “I don’t want to be a destroyer of worlds.”
