Probably an effective, if short-sighted gag for their younger audience, but what happens if either of these brand's really is hacked?  MTV and BET just undermined a lot of their credibility, if they're ever hacked for real their fans will probably assume it's another trick.

This is almost as unfunny as that time MTV followed meatheads around in Jersey and made a bunch of idiots into celebs.

 @MattLaCasse Heh. Yeah. Honestly, though, crass programming doesn't offend me much. Cable TV is ad-supported, so if people watch something and companies want to pay for airtime on it, good on ya. Marketing tactics like this don't bring one new viewer to your air. Who wins? Nobody.
