'SpongeBob SquarePants': Nickelodeon Debuts 'You're Fired!' Trailer (Exclusive Video)
Poor SpongeBob SquarePants.
The sea sponge will see his steady job at the Krusty Krab taken away in the Nov. 11 episode of Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants. While The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week debuted the scene featuring SpongeBob getting the ax from his boss, a decision he made for cost-cutting purposes, the kids-targeted cable network is releasing a full-length trailer to garner more exposure.
THR exclusively debuts the first look at the new 45-second teaser, which will officially launch later this afternoon.
The spot first touts SpongeBob's impressive work ethic, promoting him as the ideal employee -- "I love my job!" SpongeBob is heard declaring in the first seconds of the teaser -- before news of SpongeBob's unemployment is broken to him. The teaser asks whether SpongeBob will be able to rebound from his firing with the help of his friends or if he'll "hit rock bottom."
"What will SpongeBob do next?" the teaser asks.
SpongeBob SquarePants airs Mondays at 7 p.m. on Nickelodeon.
