Uh huh huh, looks like we have, like, a lot of new information on MTV’s re-launch of Beavis and Butt-Head, huh huh.
According to Rolling Stone and their interview with MTV president Van Toffler, the show will feature self-contained segments of the two idiots commenting on the world around them, but this time, their comments will be on more than just music videos. “…They’ll watch Jersey Shore, UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to music videos,” he said. The programming will be displayed on on the duo’s television, even if it’s “silly videos of cats playing music.”
To those fans who are worried that MTV may ruin the show (a valid concern, considering this is the network responsible for My Super Sweet Sixteen), have no fear. “They’ll have the same intelligence,” Toffler said. “They’re the same boneheads sitting on the same couch, commenting on things through a really simple prism.” Plus, Toffler says he’ll use the current media landscape to help with the shows gags and jokes.
“It will be much more viral this time around,” Toffler says. “We’re going to plant seeds of the characters throughout social-media networks like Facebook and Twitter, in addition to traditional programming on television and, potentially, in theaters. It’s formatted very well for the Internet because it’s short-form.”
Uh huh huh, yeah, dude, this all sounds good to us. Huh huh.
