Finally MTV Targets my Demo!
TeaBunny15 May 2005
I watch VH-1 way more than MTV these days, being that I am 38 years old and I cannot stomach Ashlee Simpson or MTV Spring Break (I do love Viva La Bam and Jackass though so go figure). But 25 Lame was so cool, going so far as to show Janeane smoking on the set (no! not in front of the children!) and talking about these videos as though they were at a mid -30's slumber party. I have it on tape so I am lucky, but I agree they should include it on a DVD somewhere. I feel like they were completely talking to me and people my age (who started out puberty with MTV and grew up with it) and it was way cool.

Best lines; John Stewart "What do you mean?? They're walking in the CLOUDS! Why must you be so cynical?"

Chris Kattan: "Look! Rico Suave!" and then later with the same sombrero and tiny guitar "Look! Macarena!"

Chris Kattan: "Why are they at Home Depot?"

Chris Kattan, donning moustache "I'm Oates!"

Denis Leary accusing Janeane of liking Good Will Hunting because she said "The boys were cute."

This has to be the best special that MTV has ever aired. This special aired on May 8, 1999 and I watched it everytime it came on. MTV sometimes airs it in the wee hours of the morning. Jon Stewart, Denis Leary, Chris Kattan and Janeane Garofalo hilariously bash the twenty five lamest music videos, as voted by viewers of MTV. Jon Stewart and Denis Leary are the cool elder statesmen and are always dropping the most hilarious comments and funniest one-liners. Chris Kattan is like the funny kid brother and Janeane Garofalo rounds it out with her own brand of humor. MTV history goes down as special guest Vanilla Ice makes an appearance to destroy his "Ice Ice Baby" video and then destroys the set with a baseball bat. Classic! Please MTV, put this out on DVD!
