MTV tells us, "You're idiots. We're responsible."

(click ads to read copy)
How self-irreverent of the "Music" Television station! But I think they should have pushed the idea further and made the right hand pics MTV "talent" like Kurt Loder, Vanessa Minnillo, "Puck," etc., because even non-MTV watching idiots know who Britney Spears is. Well, I guess this is as close to an apology as I'm going to get from them for all those wasted. late-night hours I spent watching Headbangers Ball and 120 Minutes. (full disclosure: I didn't know who Alexander Fleming was. Ads by Y&R Argentina. images via)
previously in music stars in ads:
1. 50's packin'. Nutrients.
2. Kravitz. ABSOLUT KRAP.
3. Iggy Pop for John Varvatos.
4. Taylor Hicks for Ford: a review.
5. Meet the 1-800-OK-CABLE shill band.
6. India.Arie: Pop Crap or Good Shit? Discuss.
7. Davy Jones' career has sunk to Davy Jones locker level.

Truth be told, Kurt Loder was a pretty good rock writer before MTV got their meathooks on him. "I, Tina", which he wrote with Tina Turner was amazing.

Can't wait for the ad with Paris Hilton on the right and the inventor of Valtrex on the left . . .

Kurt Loder is probably one of the very few good things to come from MTV (aside from the videos they USED to play)! Yeah, I was a HUGE 120 Minutes fan (had a major crush on Kevin Seal - remember him?) and now there is absolutely NOTHING on MTV that I can choke down, even when drunk as a skunk! MTV is, for all practical purposes, DEAD!!

Dude, Sir Alexander Fleming's work has probably saved more people from dying than any other single person's work.

What *do* they teach you in school nowadays?

I have to admit I'd never seen his picture though.

You didn't know who Alexander Fleming was?

You must be American or have had an American education... ;)
