MTV Edits Fountains of Wayne Video

Fountains of Wayne are the latest victims of MTV’s super-sensitivity following the infamous Super Bowl halftime show.

Fountains of Wayne made a video for the song “Mexican Wine” that originally showed twin ten-year-old girls jumping up and down saying they were going to perform “‘Mexican Wine’ by Fountains of Wayne!”

The new version doesn’t have the girls saying that, and while they do lip-synch the song, at no point does it show them lip-synching the words “Mexican Wine.” A source tells the New York Post that MTV wouldn’t show the video because the girls were saying the word “wine.”

An MTV representative says they did ask Fountains of Wayne to make some edits, but didn’t say in what way. Fountains of Wayne was unavailable for immediate comment.
