So Microsoft has pulled out of sponsoring “Seth and Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show”, the special edition of Family Guy to be aired on 8th November. The show goes on though as Seth’s commercial team endeavours to find other sponsors: who understand that jokes about deaf people, the holocaust and incest is just the usual recipe for Family Guy laughs.
Some material has been salvaged by Microsoft though, these 3 clips still appear on their win741 website.
Seth Macfarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy channel for Burger King.
Seth Macfarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy shorts for Priceline.
Maybe Microsoft just couldn’t forgive or forget about the Zune bashing or Stewie’s iPod commercial?
