New Tricks

This promotion for the new MTV2 website uses an old saying: "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." While the expression means that older people are unwilling or unable to do new things, it is clearly meant ironically as MTV is introducing its new and theoretically cooler all-Flash website with the ad.
