4. “You Better You Bet”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Who[/lastfm]

Here’s the main question: Was “You Better You Bet” filmed in black and white for artistic purposes, as stated by the person who made the video, or because black and white film makes everyone look “better?”

We “bet” that this fourth ever video on MTV wouldn’t have had such a strong effect if we could see the members of The Who in full color.

And, factoid: “You Better You Bet” was both the fourth and fifty-fifth video to be aired on MTV–making it the first video to be shown more than once.
