Wait, what?

No, not really. Burger King and Jeep were recently hacked. Pitiful Viacom tried to get in on the attention-action by “hackings” of MTV and BET Twitter feeds. Here is a tip for you, MTV. When planning a fake hacking, don’t, you know, announce it.

Isn’t she just precious! And check out the “hacked” tweets.

The accounts then proceeded to retweet a bunch of “OMG, MTV has been hacked” tweets like this.

And then this happened.

Lame.

Plus, you know, lame. Is that what passes for hip and edgy these days? How sad. Twitter users prove a new adage: All publicity (and any lame attempts therein) is mockable publicity!

Heh. And guess who actually scored big? Denny’s.

Take a page from Denny’s book, Viacom!

And, instead of attempting lame publicity ploys, why don’t you try this?

We’d say don’t quit your day jobs, but you apparently don’t even do those. Fail, MTV and BET. The big winners? The mockery-loving and Denny’s.

    If there was a Denny’s by me, I’d try to get in there to support them for knowing their PR. Modern MTV sucks.

    does this mean mtv’s, and bet’s 15 minutes of fame are over? i haven’t watched mtv since the early 80’s, when they actually showed music videos!

    I think it is safe to say MTV jumped the shark (for somewhere around the billionth time) with this one. Sadly, I remember when the music television channel was cool… which only serves to prove I am a very old man.

    As for Denny’s… VERY well played.

    Poetic justice: MTV and BET *actually* getting hacked after faking it.

    Denny’s makes MTV & BET look lame.
    Side note, I stop at Denny’s when traveling some times and to be honest, it’s pretty good.

      Yeah, but they take forever to get your food to you.

        I noticed that too.

    “We live in a world where @DennysDiner is cooler & more clever than @MTV”

    Time to ask MTV a question…

    On a Scale of Nickelback to Twilight; how badly does it suck to have Denny’s be funnier and cooler than you?

    Trust me if playing music videos again would increase ratings then they would do it, its obvious people watch the crap they put on in big numbers
