Pop-Up Videos Returning To VH1

It didn’t take long for longtime MTV network honcho Judy McGrath to be gone for a few changes to happen. It’s been announced that pop-up videos — you know, those initially clever, ultimately annoying bursts of commentary that pock music commercials — will make a return to VH1 after a ten-year absence. Biggest difference: there will be pop-up rap and hip-hop, which was off limits originally because they were the domain of MTV. By the way, in the above pop-up, it is said that Rick Astley used to “fetch tea” for his boss. Hmm.
