Beavis and Butt-Head Premiere, Skewer Jersey Shore

by at . Comments

In the late 1990s, Beavis and Butt-Head became the ultimate critics of music videos, dissecting MTV's signature programming with surgical comedic precision.

Fast forward 14 years and the animated, dumbass duo is back, and ironically turning its attention to the hit show whose time slot they're currently occupying.

MTV, of course, no longer airs music videos, making the network's own name a huge misnomer. But they do air a bunch of absurd, yet popular reality shows.

Jersey Shore chief among them.

The surprisingly under-hyped return of Beavis and Butt-Head wasted little time going after the Shore cast, as well as 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom and Twilight.

Imagining JWoww’s future withher  grandkids, which Jenni Farley herself mused about in Season 4, Beavis said: “Grandma JWoww, where did you get syphilis?”

Zing. As for the "plots" that fill the time when the morons aren't glued to the TV, B-squared aspired to be bitten by a werewolf to help them score chicks.

Obviously.

After they mistook a disease-ridden homeless guy for a werewolf, all they scored was Hep-C, not ladies. Beavis cried a lot. Butt-Head teased him relentlessly.

While still the same show - in which Beavis and Butt-Head's insecurity causes them to hate on the world, and often each other - some things have changed.

Self-awareness, for one. Unlike back in the day, there's a self-deprecation, a sense of clarity shared between Beav and Butt and the world surrounding them.

They know they're slacker morons with dumb schemes, essentially.

Watching the boys shred pop culture as we know it may not be a new thing, but when done with a sense of irony, it's certainly a new spin on the '90s classic.

For those of you that aren't aware, B+B is cleverly written,intelligent, and hilarious. I say this as a 60+ year old that realized early on that the humor isn't for everyone but it certainly strikes a chord with a lot of us. Welcome back Mike Judge!
