Teens Can't Wait to Watch 'Skins,' Thanks to the PTC (VIDEO)

SkinsThe Parents Television Council is accusing MTV's 'Skins' of featuring child pornography, called it "dangerous" and tabulated more than 40 instances of drug, sex and alcohol abuse in only the first episode.

To which teens say: Thanks for the heads-up!

From Funny or Die comes a video of teens who are grateful for the PTC's watchdog campaign, which has just spread the word about the potentially-corrupting show. The more the PTC whines about nudity and drug use, the more these teens can't wait to indulge ... in the show.

"Thanks for telling us. That sounds awesome," the teens rave. "Ever since the PTC has been losing their minds over it, there must be something really awesome coming up."

The video also points a finger at Taco Bell for pulling their 'Skins' commercial spot, noting that they'll be ordering pizza now and calling their high-quality menu, "barely beef" before giving the fast food chain a giant stamp of "FAIL."

If they were smart, the PTC would be demanding some sort of MTV kickback for boosting ratings.

Well a similar group in Australia - Australian Family Association - has similar success. They bitch and moan about TV shows, then the ratings go up. They bitched about Californication (which is editing slightly for Australia as it's shown on free-to-air), ratings went up afterwards; they bitched about an Aussie show Underbelly, ratings went up afterwards, they even bitched about Glee (apparently high school students being portrayed on TV to have more than 1 sex partner encourages real teens to do so), ratings went up afterwards. Many other examples where ratings went up after their campaigns. Their comment on John Safran's Race Relations "It’s the lowest point in Australian television history" sent ratings sky-rocketing.

I love Nine's boss response to their anger at Underbelly for being soft-porn - "Anyone that thinks Underbelly is soft-porn has clearly never seen soft-porn before in their life"

and John Safran's response "“I thought episode one was my mainstream episode … maybe I got it wrong? There’s seven and three-quarter episodes where I’m not masturbating. I can’t be any more accommodating than that" after they went completely mental and tried to get the channel (SBS) to drop the show - thankfully it was shown on a commercial free network so they couldn't target the sponsors like they usually do.
