"Family Guy" is launching a self-campaign in order to win at the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards. One way to do that is by mocking "The Office" in an online video that pin points the NBC series' flaw of keep revolving around the same space for six years.
Dubbed from an old episode, it shows Stewie beating violently Brian the Dog who answered "The Office" when asked which show he will vote to win an Emmy in September. In the end of the footage Stewie said, "Indians and Hispanics don't live in Scranton."
On the next days leading to the event, there will be more similar footage from the FOX animation that take a jab at the other Best Comedy Series contenders, "Entourage", "Flight of the Conchords", "How I Met Your Mother", "Weeds" and "30 Rock".
Entering its 61st year, the Emmys will be aired live September 20 on CBS from the Los Angeles' Nokia Theater.
Although encouraging people to vote for the show, "Family Guy" is actually not short of victories and nominations at the annual event. Out of the 10 nominations it received in the past years, it has won 3 of them. However, this year the animation series is upped to the Outstanding Comedy Series category, a significant achievement because the last animated series to receive the same recognition was "The Flintstones" in 1961.
