A Craigslist casting call stirred the rumors and now the nightmare is real: MTV announced today that True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street will air in less than two weeks, joining a canon that includes the super-sad one about Tourette's syndrome and that guy with the bleeding calf implant. On the night of November 5, we'll be treated to a well-edited version of the protests we've been watching for more than a month, starring college students Kait and Caitlin, and Bryan, a member of the Zuccotti Park sanitation team. As far as commoditization goes, condoms now seem so quaint. (And useful.) Let us not forget that Jersey Shore started this way, too.
