VH1’s ‘Pop Up Video’ to return

By Sari N. Kent,

After a 10-year hiatus, VH1’s Pop Up Video will again be delighting viewers with wacky trivia about some of their favorite videos.

But the show’s resurrection brings with it a new twist.

“The reboot will remain faithful to the original concept of bubbles of true 'info nuggets' strategically deployed over music videos for maximum irony. But this time Thompson and his team will also pop-up rap and hip-hop, a genre that was off limits for the original because it was the domain of sister network MTV,” according to Reuters.

PopWatch , says, “This time, not only will the show tackle classic hip-hop and rap music videos for the first time, but the Pop Up treatment will feature user-generated pop up content and updated polls in its bubbles."

Pop Up Video’s co-creator, Woody Thompson, is on board with the show’s resurrection and will be its executive producer.

There are 60 half-hour episodes ordered for this fall.
