“Family Guy” is taking an amusing approach to campaigning for an Emmy.
The long-running animated sitcom poked fun at the college admission scandal in a For Your Consideration Emmys ad. The photo features the animated cast of “Family Guy” photoshopped onto the bodies of rowers. “We’ve earned this,” the caption reads. “‘Family Guy’ Class of 2019.”
The FYC photo touches on the college admissions scandal that thrust celebrities like Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman into an unwanted spotlight. This is the second “Family Guy” FYC promo. Seth MacFarlane’s show also parodied “Game Of Thrones”.
A “GoT” parody poster shows Peter Griffin cosplaying as Jon Snow and sitting on the Iron Throne. Brian plays the role of Jon’s dire wolf Ghost. “Due to a printing error, if you wish to vote for ‘Game of Thrones’, please check the ‘Family Guy’ box on the animation ballot,” the caption reads.
The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place on Sept. 22.
