In the Family Guy episode "Peter's Daughter" (originally aired November 25 2007), Meg is thrilled to receive a Maroon 5 CD from Michael, the med student she's dating. Says Michael: "I remember how you told me you like terrible music, so I thought you might appreciate it."
There were many other moments where I howled with laughter... Peter's "Officer Nasty" striptease... the Sanka commercial...
I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Well, the clip is already yanked from YouTube. Wow, that didn't take Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation long. The clip (all 20 seconds of it) was a spoof of Aliens, with Mike Henry doing his campy best.
I understand and respect copyright, and if I headed a major entertainment corporation, I would probably have my staff chase down full-length episodes from sites like YouTube. But a 20-second clip? These clips help fuel a huge show fan base, and I can't believe companies like NBC* and Fox devote time and resources into such pedantry. Protect your advertising revenue stream, yes. Get nitpicky over short, review-length clips? No!
Or maybe this has something to do with the ongoing Writer's Guild of America strike. I don't know.
I didn't upload the clip to YouTube. But I provided link references to the show and the episode on this post. And on November 28th, my blog was the #4 Google hit for "Family Guy Season Six Officer Nasty" and the #6 Google hit for "Family Guy Sanka Commercial" -- but enough of this free advertising. From now on, I won't blog about Family Guy.
* remember Dick in a Box? It went VIRAL. People LOVED it. And NBC couldn't have been more anal-retentive in its campaign to scrub the Web of all traces of it. Internet buzz is modern-day word-of-mouth advertising. Free. Companies that don't recognize that are fucking DINOSAURS.
