It was only a few issues ago that we prayed for the return of VH1’s awesome, cult fave, Pop Up Video. And starting October 3, we’ll all be re-blessed with sixty episodes of the FYI-dropping show.

The reupped series will remain relatively the same as the original that, but with more hip-hop in the mix this time. Also VH1 plans to include interactive elements like polling and user-generated content to the show.

Executive producer Woody Thompson also claims there’s been a lot of Pop Up Video swagger jacking during it’s 10-year hiatus: “I have sat on the sidelines for the last decade and watched as everyone and the brother has ripped off Pop Up in some way or another with the internet coming out of nowhere and Twitter being hauntingly familiar and all of these devices that are using snarky, pithy text.”

Hmm, well we’re just happy it’s back. Peep the first installment with Britney Spears below.
