News like this convinces me that mid-late 20s is definitely the best age group on the planet right now based purely on the return of nostalgic 90s TV programming.
MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch premiered back in 1998 and featured crude and highly entertaining claymation battles between the “it” celebrities of the time… and because it was clay, there was legitimate deaths. There was something about how they mocked the celebrities though that was classic so between that and the fantasy matchups each week, viewers were coming back until it got old in 2002.
The series tried to resuscitate back in 2005 but was canceled again 2 short years after. But now, TIME reports that the Celebrity Deathmatch is coming back to 2015 so we can all start anticipating how this new crop of celebrities will be matched up against each other. Bieber is an obvious fun target, as are the Kardashians. But I’m also intrigued to see how they’ll incorporate today’s biggest hip hop stars. Kanye, Drake, and Lil Wayne are probably the 3 easiest in play. Maybe Eminem will make a return after his battle with Kid Rock up above? #TBT
Whatever the case, it’ll be interesting to say the least.
