On October 13, Microsoft announced they were sponsoring a “commercial-free” Special Episode of Family Guy.
As a Microsoft AND Family Guy fan — I quickly blogged about the first released video clip . . ..
Microsoft’s lawyers later dropped-out as their ONLY sponsor, forcing the addition of many Fox based commercials. However Lawyers can’t simply say it that way: "… to enhance viewing experience of original variety show special airing Sunday, Nov. 8, on FOX; broader multiplatform marketing initiative also encompasses 20th Century Fox Television, Fox Licensing and Merchandising, FOX Sports, FX, FOX.com, FOX Sports on MSN, and Hulu assets."
Yesterday, Microsoft Official Windows YouTube Channel posted the remaining Windows 7 clips that we supposed to be part of something "bigger".
- SPELLING BEE – Family Guy & Windows – Peter, patriarch of the Griffin household, tries his hardest to spell Windows 7.
- STATE OF WINDOWS 7 – Family Guy & Windows – Thanks to Windows 7, Stewies plan to rule the world is now simplified.
- WINDOWS STEWIE – Family Guy & Windows – Stewie claims Windows 7 was his idea. Get in line, Stewie.
