If you were an avid VH1 watcher during the late ’90s/ early ’00s, you might remember an addictive show on VH1 called Pop-Up Video. The show featured both older and then-popular videos with little pop-up bubbles of oftimes hilarious information about the artist, the shooting of the video, and random trivia.

It was announced recently that VH1 has ordered sixty new half-hour episodes of Pop-Up Video to air beginning October 3rd, 2011 and this morning one of those new videos was released on the internet–a pop-up video of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm]’ hit song “‘Till The World Ends.”

We remember rushing home from school to watch the show and we totally missed the comforting “pop” sound of the info bubble. In honor of one of our childhood memories being resurrected, we’ve made a list of our Top 10 Old School Pop Pop-Up Videos.
