Human Giant takes over MTV
Okay, so back on May 9 I found an interview with Human Giant's Paul Scheer (via CC Insider) in which Scheer said that he and his partners in crime, Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel, would be taking over MTV for a whole 24 hours starting at noon on May 18. I couldn't find anything on MTV's site about it, and then I got distracted by something shiny and wound up forgetting about it.
Well, today The Coming cited an actual e-mail from Scheer himself that makes things a little less vague. It reads:
It's Pretty Much Insane. On May 18th, Human Giant is getting control of MTV and MTV2 for 24 hours straight (From Noon Friday to Noon Saturday) and will be hosting the whole event LIVE from the MTV Times Square Studios. We only have a week to prepare and we can do whatever we want - we get to control the programming, videos, etc...and we getting Tapes N Tapes, Morningwood, Tegan and Sara, Eugene Mirman, Zach Galifianakis, Jon Glaser, Slovin and Allen, Jon Benjamin, Todd Barry, Curtis and John, Rob Riggle, Will Arnett, Andrew WK, Michael Cera, Andy Blitz and many more as special guests. We are writing it right now.
How cool is that? It's very cool, that's what it is. Also, fans are being given the chance to interact with the boys of Human Giant via Webcam interviews. Click "The Coming" link above for information.
