This series features old and new music videos, with a twist: As the video plays, "information bubbles" will "pop up" with facts about the production of the video, things contained in the video, and things vaguely connected to the video, or at the very least, to the last information bubble...

Crazy Credits

In a lot of the episodes (especially the first half or so of all aired) there is a one frame faint screen of text right after the last video of each episode (and before the end credits). This entire screen of faint text is usually a rant from the makers of the show against VH-1 about what they couldn't put into the pop-up bubbles for the videos of that episode. See more »

I am a proud "Pop-Up Video" addict!
11 August 2003 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Yeah, yeah, I know such a thing sounds pathetic...especially since it seems most people nowadays haven't even HEARD of (let alone watched) the wonderful, addictive, entertaining and - yes, educational - TV phenomenon that is "P-U.V." Despite its popularity taking an apparent nosedive as far as current mainstream TV viewing is concerned, I have become an avid viewer of the show as it runs in syndication...and I LOVE it! Even if many of the episodes and statistics are terribly outdated by this point, I don't care! Just the fact that I have some funny little blurbs to help get me through an otherwise unwatchable video (most of the time) is genius, and very, very amusing. Classic novelty programming.
