Video: 'Family Guy' Takes Jab at 'Flight of the Conchords'


Threatened of not being voted at the upcoming Emmys, Stewie is eliminating the possibilities by forcing Brian to vote for 'Family Guy'.

"Family Guy" takes a second jab at fellow Emmy nominee, this time 'beating down' Brian the Dog for thinking about voting for "Flight of the Conchords" as the winner of Best Comedy Series at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Calling the HBO show "wacky", Stewie yelled to Brian, "They are not even from here!"

Stewie makes a reference to "Conchords" stars Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, who play fictionalized versions of themselves. They are both natives of New Zealand who migrate to New York City in order to seek fame and success in their music career.

"Conchords" co-creator James Bobin himself was surprised at the inclusion of the show in the run for Best Comedy. "We hadn't had a sense that anything was afoot. I read the occasional preview, and we hadn't been mentioned at all," he said.

Through the mocking videos, "Family Guy", which is the only animated series admitted to the category, is campaigning for a win at the awards show. Earlier this week, "The Office" version was released, using the same "Where's My Emmy?" scene but with different dubbing. Creator Seth MacFarlane will release similar videos in the days to come for the other nominees in the particular category.

MacFarlane stated his belief back in July that there is a slim chance "Family Guy" will win Best Comedy. He said, "I don't think [voters] are ready to award an animated show best comedy. I don't think they're sure of what that would mean to the institution as a whole." The awards will be held on September 20 and aired live by CBS from Los Angeles.
