    Brilliantly written and executed!

    Just wish they had picked a better actress to ask the question as her acting sucks.

    Can't see the video where I am. Would anyone be willing to explain the gist of it?

    Also, MTV no longer stands for Music Television. Isn't that crazy?

    Gopher: I tried to sum it up, but you just have to watch it. I'm not funny enough to do it justice.
  6. Anyone else remember waiting up to see the 14 minute world premier of Thriller?

    Yep, I do. Do you remember the video that played before it? I do.

    That's how my generation talks, if they can manage to get that many syllables out. Depressed yet?

    It was John Cougar, Crumblin' Down.

    I remember sitting there all night switching between MTV and Night Tracks waiting and waiting. We thought Thriller was about to come on, so we all gathered around the TV and Mellencamp came on. I almost started crying I was so tired/mad/disappointed. I loved that song up until then.

    That's nothing!

    I heard a 20yo say something (I'm not sure what) to me a while back and he was too lazy to even enunciate the syllables of his words, so it came out as a sort of buzzing sound. I had to strain not to say something old-man-ish like "Speak up boy! I can't hear ya!"

    I just said "yeah."

    I'm not talking about what she says. Her acting is wooden like a child in a school play. They could've picked a million other girls her age who'd have done a much better job. Thankfully, we see very little of her.

    What a fun-loving guy you are...

    Lighten up. It's just a video.

    I just figured that was good acting, nailing the the "candid on an MTV fan show" fake fan stuff perfectly.

    I give people too much credit though :atoz:

    I wasn't aware that it was that generations "fault" because I thought that MTV stopped playing videos almost 20 years ago...or at least that's when I stopped watching.

    Regardless of whether he's right or wrong about that particular point, his comedic timing and facial expressions are flawless... which make me laugh.
  20. I make an effort to enunciate well.
    Most of the time.
