Um, does anyone over the age of 12 watch MTV anymore? I mean, it's a lot easier just to download the video....

Quit looking here and vote up some Devo, foo.
2005-01-11 9:14:43 AM  
When do I find out if they actually play it? I'm not in the US but i'm voting anyway. I'm puttign that i'm from florida.

maidtina, that just may be crazy enough to work!
2005-01-11 9:26:27 AM  
Such a great song, and wonderfully bizarro video. I hope it makes it.

Wait a minute, MTV plays music videos now?

What will they think of next?
2005-01-11 9:57:45 AM  
MTV needs to can their entire "programming" staff, bring back the 7x24 videos and crawl over broken glass to Mike Judge and get permission to bring back "Beavis and Butthead" for those videos which suck but they're mysteriously forced to play.

MTV UK, North, East, South, West need to reunite to become MTV Europe and bring back Ray Cokes, Carolyn Lilipali and "Naughty Nympho Nina"!
2005-01-11 10:05:34 AM  

They should bring back Sifl-n-Olly while they're at it. That was the best show ever in the history of the world.
2005-01-11 10:10:44 AM  
I voted. Their list of "choices" really made me think of Devo's "Freedom of Choice," too.

Are we not Fark?
2005-01-11 10:29:08 AM  
I voted. Reason I chose this video:
It's ONLY the greatest video EVER
2005-01-11 10:29:56 AM  
done and done. submitted by wil wheaton from california
2005-01-11 10:31:31 AM  
This is a great idea. Whip it.
2005-01-11 10:52:26 AM  
Thanks for voting, be sure to tune in to see who makes the countdown. Feel free to vote again

Guess I know what I'm doing to keep busy until lunch time.
2005-01-11 11:03:54 AM  
No auto scripts though, we dont want to DOS them, just vote from as many unique IPs as possible.

Phone vote info is on the SA thread for tomorrow, If someone posts the UK time here i'll consider calling them up from across the pond. Text message number would also be appreciated.

this is yet another step in the long-awaited treaty of cooperation between goons and farkers.
2005-01-11 11:48:55 AM  
Are we not men? We Are Devo! Do your part for Devolution!

DONE and DONE. in my comment i put "being gay is this year's black"

albo: this is yet another step in the long-awaited treaty of cooperation between goons and farkers.

We all live on the same internet, cant we all get along?
2005-01-11 12:18:13 PM  
I voted, but I have a feeling that they won't play the video no matter how many votes it gets. The producers of the show could't be that stupid, could they?
2005-01-11 12:19:42 PM  
Oh man, is this brilliant. MTV should be hijacked at every possible opportunity. Journey's "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" video should be foistered on America's youth every single day.
2005-01-11 12:30:07 PM  
If there is a 100 day rule the goons are talking about, is Electric 6 - Danger! High Voltage! 100 days old yet?
2005-01-11 1:15:35 PM  
was there ever a video of Europe's "The final countdown?"
'cause i'd vote for that, too
2005-01-11 1:31:39 PM  
done and done.
2005-01-11 1:34:39 PM  
Voted, complete with added message "there hats r sooooooooo QT!!!11!"
2005-01-11 2:27:25 PM  
I voted. Twice. But I'll be at work when it airs. And I looked for a VHS cassete, and discovered that I have none. so if Devo makes it, I think someone should rip it and post a torrent. I want to hear the inane VJ chatter in response to the video. But in the meantime I'll be downloading the actual video. And apparently some BDSM clip where a girl named Devon gets whipped. God bless the internet, it always knows when to throw some porn into the mix.

Here's the thread.

Calling in counts more than Internet votes!

Call 1-800-DIAL-MTV (800-342-5688) starting at:
4:30pm - 5:00pm (Eastern)
3:30pm - 4:00pm (Central)
2:30pm - 3:00pm (Mountain)

I voted...although I have the feeling they'll just ignore this, since the public votes probably don't matter much anyway. It's whatever the record companies pay them to play that usually hits the air.
2005-01-11 3:58:53 PM  
Voted twice
2005-01-11 3:59:14 PM  
We should write-in for an all "new wave" day.
2005-01-11 4:00:56 PM  
did anyone else see the last time something like this was done? People got New Kids on the Block to #1...and this was like 4 or 5 years ago
2005-01-11 4:01:06 PM  

Reason - part of the over 30 conspiracy :)

someon post a followup if they play it.

/refuses to watch mtv

My reason to voting for this video: Visionary.
2005-01-11 4:01:24 PM  
2005-01-11 4:01:25 PM  
Imagine the power of FARK! Uniting for a single goal.

If only 92% of you had voted.

2005-01-11 4:01:27 PM  
Reason: because they are Devo.
2005-01-11 4:01:42 PM  
Great band. Great musicians.
2005-01-11 4:01:52 PM  
I voted for it. Go Devo. Did you see all that crap on the list to vote for. Im glad I dont watch MTV anymore.
