MTV2 was a decent station before MTV decided to migrate some of the crap from the mother station over to it (does the world really need that many more showings of "Real World"?). The one bright spot has been their machinma music video, Video Mods. A new episode will be airing tomorrow night at 10:00 with the highlight (for me at least) being a music video of "Mr. Brightside" using characters from Lineage II. Click below for all the gory details.
