MTV recently put out these ads (click on each to see bigger picture and read text). They put a picture up of someone you don't recognize but is really important next to someone you do recognize and isn't important (maybe they wouldn't put it that way). They then have text that says who the person you don't recognize is. Wouldn't we not recognize them because (1) we didn't grow up in that era and (2) we are in a TV/Visual age where we constantly get visuals of everything current and the same technology didn't exist 50 years ago.

Is my brain so damaged by MTV that I can't even understand why they are putting out these ads. What are they trying to say? Are they admitting we are all dumb because we watch MTV? My brain hurts.

It's not just you, I don't understand them either.

I think it is interesting though how much of an impact TV has on the world, and how much emphasis is placed on the current stars.
