'Family Guy' goes viral with its Emmy campaign

Posted on

Master of subtlety Seth MacFarlane really wants an Emmy, so the Family Guy folks have started a campaign which….apparently highlights the most irritating, least funny aspects of their own show:

Play to your strengths, Family Guy! Have a satirical musical number, or a zany cut-away, or a low-brow/high-brow one-two punch! (“That was…’I Farted.’ By Chopin.”) Or at least something fresh — the Emmy clip just overdubs new audio on top of the show’s “Where’s my money, man?” bit.

Are you pulling for Stewie et all to win an Emmy this year, PopWatchers, and do you think MacFarlane’s aggressive campaining is helping or hurting his cause?
