The Boys Let It Rip
After 14 years, MTV's most irreverent animated series Beavis and Butt-Head is back to rip on reality TV.
During the nineties, Beavis and Butt-Head were the ultimate music video critics before bloggers, online chat rooms and YouTube took over the job for them. Now that MTV rarely airs music videos any longer, the boys are going after a new medium instead -- reality television shows such as the Jersey Shore, 16 & Pregnant, and Teen Mom. The boys poke fun of the reality stars who, in most cases, appear only marginally more intelligent than the animated duo.
Unfortunately for the Jersey Shore cast, they are the butt of most of the duo's jokes in this clip.
Imaging JWoww's future with her grandchildren, which the Jersey Shore housemate mused about in Season 4, Butt-Head said, "Grandma JWoww, where did you get syphilis?"
While watching a clip from Season 2 of the Jersey Shore in which Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi ponders whether or not she should sleep with Vinny Guadagnino because she considers him to be a big brother to her. Butt-Head adds his commentary to the situation by saying, "She usually doesn't have sex with her big brother." Beavis interjects with, "But, you know… nobody else is around, it's dark," then Butt-Head adds, "mom and dad are at the movies," followed by their short, trademark laugh.
In another clip, JWoww drew up a "hook-up" board with the names of the housemates who may or may not have slept together, Butt-Head says, "This is like a family tree, if your family was made of whores."
"If they, like, did this chart long enough, they could find out where herpes began," Butt-Head continues.
So it's official. Even Beavis and Butt-Head are capable of making social commentary more intelligently than the Jersey Shore cast.
