VIDEO: Latest Installment of Win 7 Family Guy

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 21 comments

Happy Windows 7 day!

In case you didn't know, Microsoft is launching Windows 7 today. Whatever about the barrage of marketing and advertising we've been subjected to all week, we can expect more the weekend of November 8. This is the date that a Microsoft-sponsored TV spot written by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is scheduled to air.

Dubbed Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show, the episode will feature characters from the show voiced by MacFarlane -- and fans of the show have been dubious about the collaboration. The two videos shown so far include a segment where Stewie "puts Windows 7 through its paces" by tweeting and a second clip that doesn't mention Microsoft or Windows 7 at all.

Check out the latest clip in which Stewie advertises the Windows 7 college tour Microsoft is planning.

[UPDATE] Embedding has been disabled because YouTube user Chipicao999 is a big meanie. I'll keep an eye out for an embeddable version and update accordingly but in the mean time, you can watch it on YouTube here. Fox made a copyright claim. Kudos to Chipi (aka Chipicao999) for being such a champ and providing a new link. Yes, I just said champ.

    The only way Family Guy can be funny is when they take things over the top. You know... things like The AIDS song, or Stewie shooting Brian in the kneecaps, and lighting him on fire to payback a gambling dept. Seth isn't that good at clean humor.

    Or a horse and buggy exploding because it lost a drag race and crashed...

    It's funny, you'd think Microsoft would want these clips uploaded everywhere for better media coverage...

    Apparently that's not what YouTube users think.
    While the first 2 clips posted on Youtube received poor ratings (3/5 at most) this one has 4.5

    the first Family Guy this season was awesome

    that was the one where they visited alternate universes

    but every episode since then has been horrible, including this

    What's funny is they show apple ads during family guy.

    Lame commercial. It looks like they came up with this idea from some engineer who has hard time picking up girls, let alone trying to sell a product. You figure with their money, they would hire someone in the advertising company who knows what they're doing.
