Family Guy To Advertise Windows 7

Family Guy To Advertise Windows 7

Microsoft is not taking any chances with their Windows 7 roll out. They want it to be a hit, and they're enlisting some of the biggest names in animated entertainment to do it. According to CNET, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been hired to advertise for Windows 7 in a special half-hour episode of his television show.

The special show will be titled, "Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show,". It will air on Sunday, November 8th at 8:30 P.M (ET & PT). Apparently there won't be any actual commercial breaks for Win 7, but product placement for the new OS will be sprinkled liberally throughout the episode.

While this idea seems a bit silly on the surface, it's at least a much better plan than those awful Windows 7 theme parties. At least with this we should get a mildly amusing half hour of comedy with some awkward jibes against Apple thrown into the mix. By Microsoft's standards, that's a vast improvement.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
