In yet another example of the Occupy Wall Street movement being co-opted by Hollywood (as we had previously reported, you can expect to see some of it featured in The Dark Knight Rises), it seems that the protest movement has now also become the casting pool for the upcoming season of MTV’s The Real World, or, as I call it, MTV’s Hey, A Bunch Of Entitled Asses Get Together In A House With A Hot Tub, Generate Occasional Racial or Homophobic Friction, And Then Drink A Whole Lot And Ask You To Watch.
Gives a whole new meaning to the term “the revolution will be not be televised,” no?
Regardless, “Bunim/Murray Productions has posted a Craigslist ad seeking members of the movement to audition for the next season of MTV’s The Real World,” so you can look forward to a bunch of twentysomethings (as they must “appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24”) who haven’t showered in a week getting together and, after protesting the horrors and bloated nature of capitalist society, starring in a show that is primarily an outgrowth of the horrors and bloated nature of capitalist society. God help us all.
What do you think of The Real World news?
