“Why doesn’t MTV play music videos anymore?” is one of those hackneyed observations that I’ve grown to really despise. So I’m glad that Brian Firenzi and Maria Del Carmen have made this video to finally put an end to this.
For me, it’s the same as complaining about how movies aren’t as good as they were when we were growing up or how they don’t make music like they used to. It’s just a way for one generation to rage against the next because we just don’t want to admit that we’re old and slowly drifting away from the cultural relevancy.
Eventually, the kids will be our age and will be complaining about how MTV doesn’t air shows anymore and instead they just do that thing where they chloroform the audience and try to make elaborate human centipedes.
