Pop-Up Video was a music video television series that originally aired on VH1 in the late 90s. The show featured popular music videos of the time, with added pop-up bubbles containing humorous and fun facts and trivia about the video and the artist. The concept of the show was simple yet effective. As a music video played, pop-up bubbles would appear on the screen with interesting tidbits about the song, the band or artist, and even random fun facts. These bubbles could appear anywhere on the screen, often covering part of the music video in a playful and entertaining way. The pop-ups would stay on the screen for a few seconds, giving viewers a chance to read and digest the information before disappearing.

The show was a hit from the start, providing a new and unique way to watch music videos, and attracting a wide range of viewers. Pop-Up Video quickly became a cultural phenomenon, with people tuning in each week to see their favorite music videos and read the accompanying pop-ups.

The program was hosted by various segment producers and featured a wide range of music genres throughout its run, including pop, hip hop, rock, and alternative. Some of the most memorable videos featured on the show include "Take On Me" by A-ha, "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, and "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin.

The pop-ups not only provided interesting tidbits about the video and artist but were also known to be funny and entertaining. Many of the pop-ups contained puns, jokes, and witty remarks, often referencing pop culture or current events. The humor and playfulness of the bubbles were a big part of what made the show so popular.

In addition to the pop-ups, the show also included various segments, such as "Things We Learned Today," which highlighted fun and interesting facts that were not related to music, and "Rejected Pop-Ups," which showcased humorous and ridiculous pop-ups that didn't make it into the final cut.

One of the unique aspects of Pop-Up Video was its use of closed captioning. Viewers who were deaf or hard of hearing could enable closed captioning on their television and read the pop-ups that way. This was a groundbreaking feature at the time and showed the producers' commitment to making the show accessible to all viewers.

Pop-Up Video also had a significant impact on the music industry itself. Many artists who appeared on the show saw an increase in record sales and popularity following their appearance. Additionally, the show helped give exposure to up-and-coming bands and artists who may not have otherwise been featured on television.

The show ran for six seasons before being eventually cancelled in 2002. However, its impact was felt long after it went off the air. Pop-Up Video paved the way for future music video shows that incorporated fun facts and trivia, and its legacy can still be seen in programs today.

Overall, Pop-Up Video was a fun and entertaining show that provided a unique way to watch music videos. Its use of pop-ups and humor made it stand out among other music video programs of the time and helped cement its place as a cultural phenomenon.
