Buried Life Crew Attempts To Play Basketball With Obama

And now an MTV post that’s not about Real World DC.

The Buried Life, another MTV series focuses on the journey of four guys traveling the country to complete their “bucket list.” While they are out crossing off items on their list they return the favor by helping a stranger complete an item on theirs. It’s a pretty neat idea and I’ll admit, something I wouldn’t of expected on MTV.

Of course to make it more MTV the four guys are skater types who stereotypically, “life live on their own rules.”

Well anywho this past week’s episode featured the crew visiting DC to attempt item #95: Play Basketball with Obama. Quite the task for four young adults with no DC connections at all. However thanks to their gumption ( or magic of MTV) they get in with some big DC people. They talk to a number of congressmen including Baron Hill of Indiana and Missouri Senator (and Twitter fan) Claire McCaskill.

Sure sending e-mails to Rahm really isn’t getting close but somehow the crew gets into the office of Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood. There the secretary shoots the breeze with them and makes a call over to the White House. Clearly this segment was done over the summer- right now LaHood is busy with Metro and Toyota troubles.

They even somehow get in touch with Reggie Love who tries but ultimately can’t fit the boys in for a game of hoops.

With Obama in the White House DC has become an even more popular place to shoot reality shows. Real Housewives of DC is the next big series to hopefully make a TV debut; Blond Charity Mafia, the first DC reality show that I wrote about last year, has been relegated from the CW to MTV UK. Ouch.

What will the next big DC reality show be? Let’s hope it’s something besides rich people acting all snobby in Georgetown.
