MTV is a joke…
The TV station that revolutionized the way we consume music is now a complete joke.
I am not babbling on about MTV devolving into a cesspool of reality television. This is not the time for that.
Take a look at this video from earlier today (WARNING: Some may find it offensive).
Okay, it’s a racy MTV promo, Nathan. What’s the big deal?
Well the big deal to me is what happens after the promo. Did you catch what movie that was playing when this thing aired? THE MIGHTY FREAKIN’ DUCKS! We watch a 1994 Disney movie with my daughter and this trash comes on?
My apologies if this is a departure from my usual blog posts where I rant about stuff and try to turn it into something inspirational or thought-provoking. I just could not help myself when I saw this. If my daughter was old enough to comprehend she was watching a woman use an MTV-shaped sex toy, I would have stayed on the phone until I had an MTV executive pulled away from Thanksgiving dinner with their family to deal with this ticked dad.
It’s a trashy promo (which I’m sure that’s what they were trying to accomplish), but you have to be aware where you insert these things. They probably don’t air a lot of movies or shows where this would be inappropriate compared to the programming, but give me a break.
How does this happen? Where do you draw the line?
This is definitely a mad papa bear freaking out, but I don’t think it’s an overreaction. Are you listening, MTV?
