50 Cent Bashing TVs With A Baseball Bat As A Promo For Vevo [Video]


Vevo is geared to launch tomorrow. As many of you know Vevo is going to be the Hulu of music videos. This means that those of you that are sick of MTV playing more reality shows than music videos these days will finally be able to get your fill of music videos again in one central place. Sony, Universal Music Group, and EMI Music have all agreed to place music video clips on Vevo too. YouTube technology will be used to power the video streaming. In order to promote the new service, Vevo has given 50 Cent a baseball bat to bash up some TVs playing his music video. Just in case you don’t get the metaphor in the video, Vevo wants you to stop watching music videos on TV and come to their website instead.

    Not to discredit what Vevo is doing but it's not new. And since you specifically mention MTV it's worth noting that music fans can search through thousands and thousands of videos on MTV.com. MTV moved music videos online several years ago when life became on-demand. People aren't willing to wait around in front of the TV “hoping” their favorite video might come on. You can find even the most obsure videos: http://www.mtv.com/music/
    There's even more cool music content on: www.mtvmusic.com
    Worth checking out.
