The duo of Beavis and Butt-Head may be best known for making fun of various music videos, but now, with the upcoming reboot of the iconic animated series, Beavis and Butt-Head, the pair are looking to riff on something a bit, shall we say, darker.
Creator Mike Judge revealed in an interview with Screen Junkies that while they may still be talking about shows on their mother station, MTV, they will also be watching movies, and one of them will be the much talked about horror flick The Human Centipede.
Judge talked about the inspiration for the upcoming episode.
Yeah, when I saw [Human Centipede], in fact that gave me the idea, Iâ€™ve got to have Beavis and Butt-Head review thisâ€¦ One of the things I have them do after they show a clip of the movie is I have them talking about how there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3, why donâ€™t they combine it with a Human Centipede sequel and just have those girls all get lost in the forest, the doctor strings them all together and you get two sequels in one.”
Now, while Iâ€™m not a fan of the horror film, I do think it is perfect fodder for Beavis and Butt-Head. I couldnâ€™t be more excited to see what Judge has in store for this reboot, as the show is such an entity of the ’90s, from the style to the music, that it will interesting to see how it translate. Instead of music videos, theyâ€™ll look at reality shows and movies, so I am definitely excited to see what they have in store.
