One Direction Family Guy video debuts -- exclusive
The Simpsons will feature a live segment with Homer Simpson on Sunday, but Family Guy also has a built-in attraction that night. A big One.
One Direction — who, as you may have heard, are currently on hiatus — will be seen back together making some Midnight Memories in Quahog.
The May 15 episode of Family Guy, titled “Run, Chris, Run” (Fox, 9 p.m.), includes a scene in which the wildly popular British-Irish boy band are on a campout with Stewie, who has some very specific scary campfire stories to tell the boys. While all band members — Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson — are depicted in the scene, only Payne and Tomlinson recorded lines of dialogue for the episode.
“Liam and Louis were very funny and an absolute pleasure to work with,” Family Guy co-executive producer Cherry Chevapravatdumrong told EW in a statement. “Or, as the Directioner part of me would say, ‘OMG LILO I’M SCREAMING!'”
There’s even more star-power in the scene, though. One Direction overlord Simon Cowell, who previously played himself in a 2007 episode, also will pop up. Watch the video to preview the much-anticipated Stewie-1D mashup, which involves a chilling tale of non-skinny jeans.
One Direction’s last album, the platinum Made in the A.M., was released last fall.
