“Jerks With Cameras.” That’s it. That’s the title.

The Onion AV Club keeps it real.

Following several decades of couching its reality TV programming behind titles intended to lend them a patina of narrative focus—or, at the very least, geographical location—MTV has finally just picked up a show called Jerks With Cameras, because that’s where we’re at now, let’s just admit it. As its self-loathing name suggests, Jerks With Cameras hails from Jersey Shore executive producer SallyAnn Salsano, who obviously similarly figures there is no longer any reason to hide—that a person’s soul, having already been scraped bare, can no longer conceal its warts beneath so much maquillage and fakery.

I don’t often have to look up a word, but I am not ashamed to admit that I had to go to the dictionary for “maquillage.”  Well played, Onion AV Club.  Well played.

Q. “Why does MTV not play music videos anymore?” A. …TWANG. [NSFW]

I just got sent this, and it is the funniest thing that I have seen all day, with the possible exception of that 2016 map that seems to think that Texas is going to go Democrat.

NSFW. But your boss will still probably want to see it, if s/he hasn’t already.

Yeah, I got the song stuck in my head, too.

Obviously, I’m feeling better. Weakish, though.

In case you were wondering, the “MTV” thing isn’t a typo: this is sufficiently old enough to be from the period where you could click on MTV and have some hope of seeing an actual music video.  Strange and unnatural as that might sound.
