For all those frustrated with the French and their opposition to war in Iraq, rest easy tonight. MTV is on our side. While the teen-targeted network won’t be airing music videos supporting the Bush administration’s military actions in Iraq, MTV will be exacting sweet revenge on the whiny French Real World style.
For thirteen interminable seasons, MTV has produced the same irritating reality show: “the true story of seven strangers, picked to live in a house to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.” If you think the French hate us now, wait until seven “ugly Americans” in the form of Gen-X Yankee brats – move into a posh Paris home and wreck havoc on the city of lights.
Oh la la!
