The MTV ID’s Killed by Lawyers
Let’s say you’re a giant international media brand and you ask a design/animation studio to create IDs that “make fun of some pop icons.” And let’s say that studio nails it. Delivers in frickin’ spades. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, for one, the MTV US legal team and at the icons’ labels may just (firmly) request those IDs never make it to air.
Fortunately for us, the crazy sailors responsible for those ID’s have this to say about that: “Attention Lawyers – these are just some fun GIFs that MTV decided no to put on air, but they were too cool not to be in our portfolio. So, If you want to sue something, sue boredom.”
