Beavis And Butt-Head To Lampoon Jersey Shore
There are few subjects that get me more hot and bothered than Mike Judge. Itís one thing for someone to watch a Woody Allen film and say they donít get it. Itís quite another for them to watch King Of The Hill or Idiocracy and call it stupid. It might be sophomoric, but thatís not the same as stupid.
Let me try to explain this as best as I can. In Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, the main character, a federal agent, gets his informant to sell their evidence against a mob lord in order to tape him buying said evidence without any other officers as backup. Thatís stupid and illogical. The characters watching a show called ďOw My BallsĒ in Idiocracy is not stupid. Itís the use of ignorant characters to make a point about the declining standards of quality on television. Itís actually clever, as is turning Costco into a law school and having most businesses devolve into prostitution. Do you see the difference? Well, it doesnít really matter. Beavis And Butt-Head, one of the more astute commentaries on the foolishness of a generation is coming back whether you like it or not, and the creators are planning to comment on everything from YouTube to Jersey Shore.
According to Rolling Stone, the format will be much the same as in generationís past apart from the updating of material. The two morons will sit there watching videos and make comments as they play through. There werenít be any aging or alteration in intelligence level. As for a new generation responding to the characters, MTV Van Toffler isnít particularly worried. ďEven if you didn't know them the first time around, it doesn't take more than 30 seconds to fall in love with them."
To prep for the reincarnated series, the network is planning on running a host of viral advertisements through new media stalwarts like Facebook and Twitter. Expect a large presence.
Beavis And Butt-Head will begin airing again on MTV later this year. Something tells me theyíll have plenty to say about Snookie.
