At MTV, the average age at the time of everybody there was like 24. So anyway, they were like, "You don't know what you're talking about," excepting that we went back that night and shot, like, three of these pieces on a Hi8 video camera. And then we, like, snuck into NYU and edited them with a little non-linear editing, and stole props from NYU and did these three pieces. Those pieces, as like a total spec demo overnight, ended up being on You Wrote It, You Watch It, and they hired us to do more. They hired us as a sketch group, and we insisted that we work entirely on our own; we didn't want to interact with the rest of the show. We had this incredible cockiness from day one, which, I think, really did serve us. Really from day one. We had worked with ourselves for four years before that, and we were like, "We're the best, we know what we're doing, nobody else does. Fuck the world." And so we had that attitude going in, and what we didn't realize is that all the executives at MTV were like 25, 28, so they thought, "Oh, I guess these guys really know what they're talking about." They put us in a room for about 13 weeks, paid us nothing, and gave us no budget, and said, "Here, you deal with all these pieces." And we ran around. We were our own crew and we did our own little videos for You Watch It.
