MTV’s secret weapon in voter registration? Nostalgia.
The network announced that they will bring back Total Request Live, More popularly known as TRL, for one day, but with a twist — Carson Daly is out and Hillary/Trump are in! Like Mos Def’s evolution into Yasiin Bey, TRL will step out of it’s cocoon as Total Registration Live. How bout them political apples?
The one-off episode will air tomorrow, Sept. 27, at 6 p.m. ET – one day after the first presidential debate.
Like we said, Carson Daly won’t be there, but you’ll have plenty of other celebs snapping the political bullwhip on the TRL stage. Ty Dolla $ign, Kendall Jenner, Joss Whedon, Camila Cabello from Fifth Harmony, Mack Wilds, Natalia Dyer and more will be there. Issues, not music videos, will be the name of the game as viewers weigh in on racial injustice, national security, immigration, education and gender inequality.
If, you are one of those cord-cutting, Millennial TRL fans, you can stream the episode on MTV’s app, Facebook page or at ElectThis.com.
Get out there and rock the vote, peeps.
