Watch Human Giant if you want Human Giant to live
So I told you that on May 18 Human Giant would be taking the reins of MTV and MTV2 for 24 hours starting at noon on May 18.
A rather amusing press release has it that MTV will give the series --which features actors Paul Scheer, Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel-- a second season if they get one million hits on their MTV site. A snippet from the release:
As with all electioneering, there's way for the enterprising few to cheat the system - texting support counts! But fans can also show up in Times Square to deliver a pizza counting for 80 hits, or carving Paul Scheer's face into Mount Rushmore for the entire million hits (though Rob Huebel's face is only worth 750K). MTV cannot be held liable for any defamation to national landmarks.
As I mentioned before, the gang have a ton of great comedians and bands lined up to fill the entire 24 hours, but really caught my eye was this post from their personal blog, which reads, in part, "we have full access to the MTV vaults, we can play pretty much anything we want, with the exception of anything Nirvana related (Damn you, Courtney Love). So that means Old Remote Control, Singled Out, Beavis and Butthead, Sifle and Ollie and tons more."
Did they say Sifl and Olly? Yes, I believe they did, even though they misspelled the name of the show. Could it be my favorite comedy gang of the moment might be showing one of my favorite shows of all time? That's a whole bag of cool dipped in awesome sauce.
