“Family Guy” is apparently not above doing whatever it takes to get the Emmys to notice them, whether it is offending people, begging for sympathy, or even reminding them how long it has been since an animated series has received some love in the Comedy Series category.
So what has the Seth MacFarlane-created show decided to do now? Basically, it may very well be the most surprising ad that they have done yet, and also one of the most disgusting. Check it out below, as we’ve warned you already that this is not exactly for the faint of heart … or for people who are a little bit on the conservative side.
This ad, which appears in the June 21 edition of The Hollywood Reporter, is a reference to one of the later episodes of “Girls” season 2, where Adam (Adam Driver) commits a very specific act to a girl he is dating (Shiri Appleby). It got people talking then, and it will get people talking now just as much. We’re also sure that none of the women on this show really appreciate being portrayed by pudgy men with wide faces (or as a dog.)
The only other thing that surprises us about this ad? That “Family Guy” is basically advertising another show that is apparently good enough to be nominated itself. (For those curious, “Girls” will be nominated for Comedy Series over this show 99 out of 100 times, even if “Family Guy” does well in the animation field.)
What’s your take on the “Family Guy” Emmy ad: Does it go too far, or do you think that it’s fair game to spoof anything on TV, even if it is on an adult-oriented channel like HBO?
