Remember MTV Cribs?

The show premiered in 2000 and did exactly what it said it would: showed you the inside of celebrities' cribs. It gave us many great moments.


Until now!

On Thursday, MTV announced that it is reviving Cribs — for Snapchat. The new series will air weekly starting in June, when it debuts with a look at Mac Miller's and Austin Mahone's (presumably palatial) homes.

The catch — apart from the "show" airing on social media rather than, you know, MTV — is that Cribs is doing away with camera crews and producers. Instead, the footage will be shot by the subjects themselves, like any other Snapchat, for a vibe that an MTV press release describes as "intimate."
