Family Guy episode 5ACX21

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."

LOVE IT

There were many other moments where I howled with laughter... Peter's "Officer Nasty" striptease... the Sanka commercial...

...and this:



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.

It just makes me want to boycott them all. I love Family Guy too. I wish I could have seen that clip, it might have even spurred me to purchase the dvd. Idiots.

The first failure of Maroon 5 was to do in every song of theirs THE EXACT SAME THING! How many times can you really enjoy a soft rock version of a Barmitzvah song.

maroon isn't even a nice colour.

Hey y'all. I'm gon' eat you all up. Oh no!

You are dead on about the difference between posting full episodes and small clips. It is great advertising. I don't know what the hell their problems are.

The funny part is that Viacom is suing YouTube over copyrights.

...Something about the clips being worth billions of dollars...And then having the balls to tell WGA that internet streaming is worthless and that Writers won't get a share of profits.
