Why Doesn't MTV Play Music Videos Any More? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's the question that's been niggling away at the back of our minds for some time now. Why has MTV gradually replaced all the music videos that helped the channel make its name with "reality shows about horrible backward people"?

This new clip sees 20-something Natalie Jones put the question to MTV's head of programming, Michael Destiny - who clearly isn't going to take such implied criticism lying down. His opening gambit? "Are you f***ing kidding me?"

We should add that this sketch is actually the work of Los Angeles-based funny people Brian Firenzi and Maria Del Carmen.

And if you like short comedy sketches - and frankly, why wouldn't you? - we have a feeling you'll like these, too...
