Well surely this won't end badly or embarrassingly at ALL. Confused

I am oddly hoping for the inverse in the form of a "total NEET" which would be anti-climactic and sadness incarnate, so pretty much Tomoko Kuroki IRL.

How much does it pay? I could probably convince them I've spent a lifetime trying to look like Shuntarou Sako from PapaKiki.

Nah, on second thought, I wouldn't be able to fake all the behaviors that would probably land me in jail anyway.

Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen and thank god that I never too things that far and have the common sense to know what's real and what can only be only pulled off in anime. I reiterate this is a BAD idea and can only further the stereotype of anime fans are delusional (some not all).

Is MTV still relevant in any discernible way?

No. Why would anyone even need MTV? Just let your music apps decide for you based off your prefs, and the internet can hype musicians up without needing a dedicated channel.

12 year-old girls don't watch it anymore? I know they're the damn reason why we don't get more Beavis and Butt-head.

The True Life series is a documentary-style program that focuses on individuals in particular situations or subcultures, from "embarrassing medical conditions," food addictions, former Amish, and clashes with parents.

There was also an episode about registered sex offenders.

Awesome. Another American-produced POS show displaying a condescending, outdated, bias view of Anime and its fanbase for low-brow entertainment.

Do us all a favor and call it quits, MTV.
