The Microsoft Family Guy

October 14, 2009

What do you get when you cross Microsoft 7 with Family Guy? A totally sponsored 30 minute Microsoft centric episode of one of America’s most popular cartoon television shows.

This will be followed by a 12-week American college campus road tour where 4.3 million college students will get a chance to try Windows 7 and entertainment created by Fox Licensing and Merchandising such as outdoor movie nights hosted by Family Guy’s Stewie and Brian, online videos, and other customised Family Guy content and when they choose to buy they will receive a special student discount.

This is a huge investment in trying to woo the younger American user back to the Microsoft faith but come on Microsoft there are students in Australia too you know!. What about us? We can be bought as well you know!
