'Family Guy' takes on 'Girls' in Emmy ad

FAMILY-GUY-GIRLS

The envelope-pushing, please: In what has become an annual tradition, Family Guy has gone to great/outrageous lengths to grab the attention of Emmy voters. Last year, the animated show’s for-your-consideration ad took a shot at the Academy’s “bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews,” and a few years before that, it tried the heartstring-pulling “Vote for us or you’re racist” approach with a Precious parody.

This year, the Academy itself is not in Family Guy‘s comedy crosshairs, but Girls is. Peter & Co. spoof the HBO comedy’s iconic four-women-crowded-onto-a-sofa poster and top it off with a family-unfriendly tagline, which is a naughty nod to Adam Driver’s controversial sex scene.

Is Family Guy living the dream, one mistake at a time? Sound off below.
