This Week's Top Web Comedy Video: Why Doesn't MTV Play Music Videos Anymore?

I've done it. You've done it. Your friends have done it. Why, we whine doesn't MTV play music videos anymore? And it's true! They don't. It's just a big seething crap reality tv show pile-on. But you know what? As the (not really) head of MTV programming tells you himself, it's your own damn fault.


And, uh, to be honest? He's got a point.

The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including a dinner party, a lost Bond film, and the history of the internet can be found over at Splitsider.
