    Default MTV's Lost Weekend

    Looks like there's going to be a film about the infamous "Lost Weekend."

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/pagesix...-contests/amp/

    Probably a good thing I was 8 years old at the time and not eligible to enter.

    I could handle the drinking but I'm not touching the drugs.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Too bad the whole thing isn't on VH's lost weekend. Assume just a part is used.

    Actually, looks like it is all about VH. A 14 minute short.

    Really looking forward to seeing this. Those MTV contests were fantastic, too bad it's just a short movie about it.

    One weird thing that sticks out for me from this article to me is that the VH contest winner, Kurt, suffered brain trauma years before the Lost Weekend took place. I've always thought something was "off" about that guy in all the VH Lost Weekend footage I've seen and subsequent interviews with him... including that interview from The Inside magazine which was followed up with many redactions to his story.

    There is a chapter in the book I Want My MTV about this. <spoilers> I think the chapter is titled, "He has a metal plate in his head", and it briefly recounts how the guy was really in no physical shape to be taking part in the "prize". I guess the booze, drugs and groupies nearly killed him and he's actually legally blind today due to previous medical conditions and bad decisions.

    There already was a film, Dana Carvey played DLR and Jon Lovitz played the fan/hostage!

    Can't believe I can't find it online anywhere any more.

    The episode even had something of a Van Halen theme. During that week's "Weekend Update" segment, cast member Dana Carvey offered a wildly antic impression of former VH vocalist David Lee Roth, bounding around the room while a "lost weekend" contest winner (played by Jon Lovitz) silently begged anchor Dennis Miller for help.

    Come on, a "film" that's 14 minutes long?

    I fucking hate "shorts."

    Interesting new info to me was that the winner had a brain injury

    VH had no idea and just cannonballed him the moment he arrived

    I keep hitting that "see what's playing" button on the page I linked. I think they randomly show some of the shorts there.

    Can already tell VH didn't sign off any letting any of their music be a part of it. Is their a 14 minute clip on there too somewhere? Is the whole thing 14 minutes?

    You can hear Ryan Chavez at the end of the trailer wrote an adaptation of "Women in Love"... sounds cool actually

    Imagine if the guy died, it would make VH even more legendary today:

    VH partied so hard, they accidentally killed a fan & contest winner, who was
    pressured to partake in their daily prolictivity.

    After the lawsuits & platinum albums, the band expressed remorse, claiming:
    This was just what we did, for years...we were naive to believe this what everyone did.

    I entered the contest. I remember MTV showing a giant construction dumpster that was full of the entries.
