Mike Judge talked to Vice about the journey of bringing Beavis and Butt-Head back to the small screen, addressing concerns that the pairs’ taste in rock T-shirts and music videos will now be a little dated:
…even at the time in ’92, I remember people at MTV would say that AC/DC and Metallica were old references. They were like, “Maybe it should be Nirvana or Pearl Jam or something else, you know?” It was already unhip to begin with, but to me it’s more like a state of mind than a cultural reference to a particular time period, even though there are some specific references. So it’s about going to that same place, except now I’m watching Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant.
Word, man. It’s all about the state of mind. Also in this interview, he says might bring Daria back in the new B and B-H, if we ask nicely enough. Please, sir? With a sarcastic, unexpressive cherry on top?
