Crazy Credits

In a lot of the episodes (especially the first half or so of all aired) there is a one frame faint screen of text right after the last video of each episode (and before the end credits). This entire screen of faint text is usually a rant from the makers of the show against VH-1 about what they couldn't put into the pop-up bubbles for the videos of that episode. See more »

Informative and Entertaining
18 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

I love Pop Up Video. What really can you say about it? It's simply facts popping up in bubbles through out video clips. There are facts about the singer/band and then facts that don't really have anything to do with the singer/band but can somehow be linked to the lyrics or to something in the video clip. I won't use Pop Up Video as a reliable source of information but it sure is entertaining.
