MTV To Broadcast "The Paper" From Yuppie Florida High School
Another reason why I will follow this series on MTV is that I have actually been to Cypress Bay high school a couple of times on secret missions. The last time was a couple of years ago for a weekend event there. I remember it mainly because as I was passing some woman playing a tune on the radio, I briefly did a quick step dance to the tune. As a result, a burst of laughter broke out from the crowd and they begged me for more and I complied to yet more laughter. Okay, I admit I was also mugging but it wasn't for the MTV cameras.
The premise of "The Paper" is about some students vying to become editor-in-chief of the student newspaper, "The Circuit." Normally the kids wouldn't give much of a crap since it probably involves a bunch of extra-curricular work. However, since they are on the MTV tube, you can expect them to suddenly become incredibly competitive for that post with lots of mugging for the camera along the way. As for the attitudes of the students, you can get a preview of it by the quote from one chick in the video who said that her mom wants her to be Barbara Walters. Of course, since this is Weston, her mom wouldn't want her to be Laura Ingraham.
Apparently I am not the only one who has a negative reaction to the preview video. Below are a couple of YouTube comments from others who were also turned off by the "The Paper."
WOOT! Let's degrade our school by displaying the hypocrisy and idiocy of it's most outlandish and asinine members! So fun! Yeah... God... I hate you MTV... You're a plague ripping through the world and stealing the minds of young people everywhere causing them to comform into your own idealistic fallacy on what people should really be like and what entertainment is...
those are like the whitest people in cypress
