Now Hear This…Pop Up Video
In case you missed it, after a 9 year “break” those little nuggets of info we all adored are back! In October Pop Up Video returned in all it’s glory with all new videos chalked full of trivia and witty/inappropriate commentary. The news didn’t initially spark that same excitement I once had watching music videos, but after recalling some of my favourite Pop Ups (Spice Girls anyone?), learning rap and hip hop would now be included and seeing the hilarious treatment applied to some of my favourite artists, I was hooked once again! Plus as an added bonus there is a DIY Pop Up video feature on the VH1 site which allows you to choose from hundreds of videos, add your own tidbits of info and presto! A Pop Up Video to call your own (which you can share on Facebook/Twitter, naturally).
Rekindle your love of Pop Up Video with the latest videos that have been floating around by Vampire Weekend, The White Stripes, and The Strokes.
You can watch Pop Up Video on MuchMoreMusic Monday-Thursday at 8PM. Now that Pop Up joins Beavis and Butt-head on the list of campy 90s shows that have been revived, my prediction is that you’ll be watching Ed the Sock host Fromage again in no time!
