I really try not to go on TikTok. Somebody is either mad about something or figured out how to balance 72 rare US coins on their face, but I do understand that is woven into the fabric of today’s pop culture.
I’m sure the generations who came before us had nothing good to say about to cartoon degenerates making fun of music videos back in the early 90s, but WE WATCHED ANYWAY!
Beavis and Butthead were a HUGE part of our lives. Go ahead. Go into a 7-11 right now and make yourself a Slurpee. There is a small part of your conscience eating at you because you so desperately want to call it a whack-a-do. If you’re out of toilet paper, you KNOW you want to tell whoever is going to the grocery store that you need teepee for your bunghole.
THAT’S why I am so conflicted with Beavis and Butthead’s reboot on Paramount+ where they will be tearing up TikTok Videos. Do these people need MORE exposure?
In the early 90s, we watched the nerdy character Stuart, dressed in his Winger T Shirt get shredded by the two main stars over and over which might have been the final nail in the hair metal coffin. Today, there would be support groups for Stuart and an online demand that Beavis personally apologizes to Kip Winger while Butthead grovels at his feet.
Can the world accept these two unaccepting savages in 2022? I guess we’ll find out.
