I wonder how kids today view that, having not grown up with MTV (a music video playing MTV) as a staple of life. I wonder how stuff like MTV2 does in the ratings. Do a lot of people still watch videos?
I don't know, but, I'd guess most folk get their vids online now. VEVO lets you create a video playlist of up to 75 songs which I assume you can access on your phone or any internet connected device. Plus OnDemand offers music videos so some peeps probably go that route. I buy dvds of 'em (hehe), old school.
Surely Hollywood still watches music videos. After film school (or instead of it) music videos are where future film directors build their reels. David Fincher was an early example of this career path and now I'd bet a majority of today's blockbuster directors dabbled in music video (and/or commercials) early on.
