MTV accidentally played Fresh Prince during Prince tribute

I’m just surprised MTV had those old Super 8 film cartridges still around, Prince or Fresh Prince.


#3

Did they play Purple Haze?


#4

We all remember it.

Interestingly MTV’s relevance appears to be in being a touchstone of irrelevance.


#5

Prince, The Artist Formerly Know as Prince, The Fresh Prince, Freddy Prinze. It’s all the same.


#6

Hey, at least they kept it in the same level of royalty. They could have accidentally started playing Queen!


#7

I was worried they’d move to the lesser nobility like The Amboy Dukes.


#8

RIP Prince!

Everyone remembers him in Purple Passion!


#9

Come to think of it I never saw the two of them in the same place, same time, so maybe a Superman, Clark Kent thing.


#10

To be fair, the intern who set it up was doing they best they could.


#11

Is that like the French Prince?

Louis the… Listen to me, smartarse, when you’re King of France you’ve got better things to do than go around all day remembering your bloody number!


#12

If they left the Super-8 cartridge in the glove box of the car long enough, it would turn into Queen.


#13

Malfeasance on behalf of undersupervised search algorithm.


#14

To pick nits, “MTV” is not an acronym but an initialism. Acronyms are pronouncable.

This rhyme helps me keep Purple Rain and Purple Haze apart:

Guitar’s neck is left, Hendrix plays so deft.
Guitar’s neck is right, Prince rocks you all night.


#17

Guitar’s neck is middle – no, wait, that’s a bass fiddle.


#18

Yeah, I call it “m’tu”, “mutvuh” or “matuv” all the time.

MTV2 I call “m’tuvtu” and I call VH1 “vahoun”.

Also Purple Haze sounds like Foxey Lady which might be helpful.

You sound old.
