I'll claim week #411. 5/5 - 5/11
Let's go with the theme of early MTV, back when they actually played music videos.
80's and early 90's perhaps...
Pick an image, personality, show, or video you might have viewed back in the day.

One of the most iconic videos, Take On Me by A-ha.

Heard this song on the radio the other day and my wife and I were talking about how this song would likely have been nothing without that video. The song is nice and catchy but the video made the song the hit it was.

Even though the line in the song is about how stupid the guy saying it is, they almost always edit out the verse about the f@ggot with the earrings and the makeup.

In the edited version, that entire part of the song is replaced by a guitar solo. I guess it doesn't matter that he's making fun of himself.

They tried to ban it outright here because of 1 complaint from a delicate flower in Newfoundland. But most radio stations protested. On played the song every hour on the hour. Eventually the broadcast standards group reflected. But since then only the edited version has been played. Even on SXM 8 it is edited.
