I heard the sound clip of this today on 5fm and just hosed myself. Before I carry on though:
Please Note: This video is not real… it is a spoof.
You’d think that’s logical right, seems more than enough people that commented didn’t actually realise this.
Anyway, I just think it’s damn funny. Although, being born in 1981, it hit a bit too close to home…
Reading through the comments though, there was one that I thought was brilliant, from Kahandran: From 2:25-3:10, he does not blink once!

I used to love MTV, back when Beavis and Butthead, Migraine Boy, Daria, and more recently Celebrity Deathmatch, had me laughing my ass off. Back when there were still nights dedicated to rock music, not just one night or show either. They also didn’t have 12 hours of ads per day…
Okay I’ll admit, I don’t watch much TV at all these days, let alone MTV. I watch the movies and series that I like and that’s it. Once in a while at a friends house I might jump across to MTV, but I hardly ever stay there more than 15-20 minutes before I get frustrated.
As if my apathetic view of MTV wasn’t bad enough, at the MTV Movie awards last night (5 June 2011), I was shocked to find that the best movie, according to them, was “Twilight: Eclipse” and along with that they got Best Male and Female Performance (for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart). Oh and Best Kiss & Best Fight. WTF? Really… Twilight was their “best” movie? What the hell happened to all the other way better movies, never mind the best performance awards? Sorry MTV, but you now just plain suck…
So I guess this is my goodbye to MTV. As a final remembrance of the MTV I used to love, here’s a video I found of a whole bunch of Beavis and Butthead.
