'Family Guy' Teams With Microsoft for Windows 7 TV Extravaganza
Fortunately, you won't have to sit through annoying commercials, since, as Advertising Age reports, there'll be Windows-branded content throughout the program, which is tentatively titled 'Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show.' Microsoft is being coy as to just what this integrated material will be, but Gayle Troberman, general manager of consumer engagement and advertising, says, "We'll be evoking the cast of 'Family Guy' in some interesting ways that integrate the product messages."
If you ask us, 'Family Guy' has been heading downhill for a while now, so this might not be the best way for Microsoft to tout Windows 7. Plus, Google already enlisted MacFarlane for help with advertising over a year ago. But come to think of it, Microsoft doesn't exactly have a good advertising track record. [From: Advertising Age]
