Though they should be well into adulthood and Oxycontin addictions by now, Beavis and Butthead will be forever frozen in their teenage forms when they return to MTV later this year. MTV President Van Toffler told Rolling Stone what we can expect from “Beavis and Butthead” 2.0:
“I felt like there was a whole crop of new artists — and what the world sorely missed was the point of view that only Beavis and Butt-Head could bring. They’ll be self-contained segments with the boys in different situations like they used to be. But this time around, they’ll watch”Jersey Shore,” UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to music videos.” All of the programming will be displayed on the duo’s TV, even if it comes from YouTube — “like silly videos of cats playing music.”
So, they have Apple TV? How the hell’d they figure out how to set that up and I still can’t. I guess I need like a different cable or something.
“It will be much more viral this time around. 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.”
