Okay, I’ll admit it: I still occasionally watch MTV.

Most recently, the draw has been the Paris Hilton reality show My New BFF, in which the America’s sweetheart attempts to hunt down the person who gets the honor of being the passenger killed in the DUI rollover accident planned for July 2009. It’s awful, of course, but it’s an amazing feat of public image manipulation, if only because the people vying to get buddy-buddy with the star are each enough of a mess that they make Hilton herself look surprisingly down-to-earth and level-headed.

What I’ve gained most from the few episodes of My New BFF, however, would be the ads I’ve seen for follow-up the that other awful MTV reality show, A Shot of Love With Tila Tequila — you know, the one that was billed as the first-ever bisexual dating show but which didn’t end in either season with Tila snagging a girl. Tila has been dropped and the show’s sexy-shock value has been taken to the next logical step: bisexual twins. Meet the entity known as the Ikki Twins, Rikki and Vikki No Last Name Given.


See their logo? The one above the assertion “the world’s hottest twins”? This is what concerns me. Given that these two are bisexual female twins, I have to assume that the color and design of the two instances of the letter “K” cannot be accidental.

You see it, right?


  1. Oh. Oh wow. And yet, coming from MTV, this does seem all that surprising. As you said, the next logical step.

  2. Next up: The Scatplay Triplets.

  3. Bro, it sounds like you watch MTV a little more than occasionally.

    It's okay, man. You're among friends.
