    Here's the text for those of you that don't feel blue:

    <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>I am the LAST person to start rumors on this board, so I'll pose this in the form of a question, since there are many experts of other subjects here outside of Van Halen that will understand what the h*ll is going on:
    Why did MTV just make a new 20th Anniversary commercial featuring ONLY the "Hot For Teacher" video, and ONLY this dialogue,

    ".....MTV's first love......"

    (followed by the only other dialogue in the commercial, indicating the date & time of the show).

    I am excited/confused for 2 reasons:

    A) this is the only 20th Anniversary commercial formatted as such....the rest have been on the air for 2 weeks, and are all full of dialogue, and pictures indicating who will be performing/presenting, ie Puff Daddy, Marilyn Manson, etc.

    B) Mariah Carey, who received the big $$$ to be the FINAL act of the 20th Anniversary show, just dropped out of the show on Wednesday after checking herself into the hospital because of anxiety attacks. MTV have since removed her from the VERY wordy and VERY photo-filled commercials.

    .....and then along comes this new "Hot For Teacher" commercial that I haven't seen until today (Sunday).....it was dead silent forever, then this voiceover comes through...."MTV's first love......"

    AND THAT'S IT!?!?!

    One of 2 things has happened here:

    A) I have somehow become uncool at a comparitively young age, and no longer understand the abstract humor/symbolism in MTV's commercials

    or

    B) I so badly want VH to reunite with Roth, that I am making an a** of myself by assuming that somehow, someway, either DLR, or VH will be presenting/performing in this show. Maybe even fill in for Mariah?

    You *KNOW* the producers were on the phone ASAP after she dropped out.

    Somebody flame me quick and make me shut up. I almost don't want to be this excited.

    Has this commercial been on the air before today (Sunday)??? Because the other 20th anniversary commercials have been on for 2 weeks now....WITHOUT the HFT version. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    So DLR is going to be on MTV again, eh?

    Sorry for my skepticism and cynicism... But, it aint going to happen! MTV is just using Van Halen for a marketing strategy... (But, a very fine marketing strategy indeed)!

    Sounds an awful lot like the urgent business Whitney Houston had to attend to while she was detained at the airport a few years ago.

    I dunno. This one is a lot more intruiging than those other rumors, because MTV actually has a commercial with just HFT on it...Implying what? I don't know and I'm not trying to put mine or anyone else's hopes up, but ya never know...

    MTV's first love...Hot For Teacher...

    Who among MTV's bigger acts have been teachers?

    STING! He was once an English teacher or something. Maybe it will be a big suprise Police reunion show?

    Grasping at straws here, I know, but just looking for possible 'clever' meanings behind an MTV commercial, if such a thing is even possible.

    They're just using Van Halen to get people to tune into this stupid show. Old Van Halen has sorta become "cool" or "popular" among modern rock radio stations falling under the "retro rock" category and for teenagers getting into rock music that are buying old records (i.e. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) since they have jobs now and can afford to do so. Nothing will happen on this show. MTV is just using it to make people like us tune in. I, for one, ain't falling for it.

    I think that is an extremely plausible explanation, Axe. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Now, now, maybe she is having anxiety attacks. Who are we to say she isn't?

    I mean, if I left messages to my "lambs" (her term for her fans) on my answering machine, only to have Howard Stern goof on them, I'd suffer from attacks, too, wondering what Howard would say. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/sleep.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]

    It IS an interesting theory, though...

    "MTV's first love?"

    We could all go postal trying to figure that out... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
