This vide freaked out MTV. Let me explain, though my memory may be a little hazy.
TRL used to have a segment where they chose a video of the week that would go on heavy rotation. It won the first two studio votes, and the host (Carson Daly?) looked a little concerned. When it won the week Carson was completely befuddled and asked this girl, "why do you like this? It's pretty strange." She replied, "I've never seen anything like it it's awesome!" The crowd cheered, Carson looked defeated.
The same thing happened for the David Byrne song Miss America. The segment was cancelled not long after that. Can't have the kids picking what they like.
