Aah the blissful optimism of youth! Way back in 2006, the four buddies that are The Buried Life set off, equipped with little more than a video camera, an R.V, and an insatiable appetite for that crazy game they call “life” to travel across the States, with a mission to knock items off their “100 things to do before I die” list. From the Steve-O inspired (go down a mountain on a longboard), to the socially conscious (help someone build a house), they vowed to help a stranger achieve a life goal for each item they accomplished. Lucky for them, not so long ago, the execs at MTV had been scratching their addled heads in search of new ideas to win back their audiences who, bored of escapist trash, turned off in search of Obama-style civic-minded optimism. They wooed the Buried Life boys with an offer they couldn’t refuse (presumably), and Bingo! The boys will be back this summer with 53 more missions to complete, and lots of strangers to pleasantly surprise.
