As we approach the October 27 air date for the almost-guaranteed-to-be-glorious return of Beavis and Butt-Head, MTV will release more and more promos for the show; following last week’s uproarious trailer for the new season, the latest ad is the below clip, in which The Dynamic Duo “call” the residents of Jersey Shore.

I’ve seen some complaints online that B&B apparently won’t be watching many (if any) music videos anymore, but I find that criticism to be pretty, well, butt-headed. ‘Cause it’s missing the point: the music video “critiques” were really media commentaries, and that’s what made them so brilliant — not just the fact that they were funny as hell. And the truth is, MTV doesn’t air music videos anymore, and while you could have Beavis and Butt-Head sitting in front of their computers watching videos online, all creator Mike Judge would really be offering is a critique of niche media. In other words, for these two to be critiquing music videos in 2011 would really thinking way too small, and to claim otherwise is really to demonstrate how old and out of touch you are.

ANYWAY, enjoy this. October 27 can’t come soon enough.
