Granted, complaining about people who complain that MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore is the new complaining that MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore, but that rebuttal is rarely made with as much vitriol as in this “Ask A Network Head” comedy short. So next time you find yourself getting nostalgic for those halcyon days of back-to-back promotional materials from record labels packaged as entertainment, watch this video, remember that YouTube exists, queue up that R.E.M. video you really want to watch, then go back to feeling superior to the Jersey Shore cast. There, don’t you feel better?
