Video Mods (found MTV2 series; 2004-2005)
Video Mods was a TV show that aired from 2004 to 2005 on MTV2, making it the shortest-running series for MTV. The network ordered 7 more episodes featuring video game franchises such as Star Wars and Destroy All Humans in 2005 before they eventually cancelled it.
YouTuber RebelTaxi uncovered the names of some lost episodes, and most infamously, one that had SpongeBob and friends dancing to All the Small Things by Blink 182, using assets from SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, Pants! The University of Buffalo's computer lab made some of the Video Mods.
While clips from the show were initially very difficult to come by, all of the music videos produced for the series would eventually be posted online by various individuals, with the final missing video (a video for "Pain" by Jimmie Eat World set to footage from the video game Juiced) being uploaded online on August 5th, 2022, at which point the show was rendered completely found.
