Stewie and Brian Announce Win 7 Movie, Sort of

Yesterday we got a sneak peek of what Seth MacFarlane, FOX and Microsoft have in mind for their thirty-minute show/advertisement that focuses on nothing but Windows 7 the whole way through.

Whether you think it's boring, a bad attempt at humor, or just plain bad, it's definitely an ad for Windows 7. No doubt about it. This next clip is a little different. Sure, I SEE the Windows 7 logo at the beginning and yeah, it's called "Family Guy Windows 7 Movie Introduction" but there are exactly zero mentions of Microsoft, Windows 7, Office, or Twitter.

Maybe this is an attempt to show people that yes, MacFarlane and the folks at Microsoft and Fox are advertising Windows 7 but the show isn't just going to be a constant stream of marketing buzzwords. Let us know if the clip below changes your mind about watching the show!

    It's hard to hide that you were watching porn on a Mac, hopefully they'll cover that in the show/movie.

    oh no, Seth McFarlane, you disappoint me. You used to be funny. Before you were canceled the first time. Wonder how long until it happens again.

    Yet again, MS misses the mark completely by blending a successful comedy with Windows for no apparent reason.

    My guess is that the stuff that people find funny about family guy is just way to offensive to be associated with Microsoft. Maybe once the show airs I will change my mind but I am assuming Microsoft will want them to play it safe. I'm not sure how quickly Microsoft will want to approve lines like this.

    Stewie (to one of the prostitutes at Cleveland's house): So, is there any tread left on the tires? Or at this point would it be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway?

    I think both Microsoft and Family guy are trying to hide the fact that they're just shilling Windows 7.

    maybe if they didn't just dub old episodes it'd be funnier...on second thought, probably not

    Seth MacFarlane has lost sight of the funny, and focused completely on the money. *coughselloutcough*

    Doesn't look very promising, I love Family Guy, but I don't like Microsoft attempting to brainwash me.
