It might be tempting to think that Beavis and Butt-Head is a product of its time, but a new concert opening video for Portugal. The Man proves that the duo is, in fact, timeless. The video sees the wisecracking animated hecklers doing what they do best to the music video for Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still,” until the video takes an unexpected turn.
Created by Mike Judge, Beavis and Butt-Head aired on MTV from 1993 until 1997. It was revived in 2011 for a short-lived eighth season. The series starred two slackers, Beavis and Butt-Head, who did little more than sit in their apartment and heckle music videos on their television.
The series became a pop culture phenomenon in the ‘90s and was even adapted into a movie, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, in 1996. The film made $63 million at the box office on a budget of $12 million.
The future of Beavis and Butt-Head is currently up in the air. The 2011 revival’s ratings ended up making the show one of MTV’s most popular at the time, but network eventually passed up on renewing it due to a change in its target demographic.
More recently, it was announced that the series’ sister show, Daria, would be receiving its own reboot from MTV Studios.
