Watch ‘Family Guy’ Brian and Stewie Explain the Covid Vaccine
family guy Creator Seth MacFarlane is doing his part to raise awareness about vaccines by getting his famous people talking in a new PSA. The short, released on Monday, begins with Peter Griffin visiting the doctor’s office accompanied by Brian and Stewie, and expressing some uncertainty about whether or not to take the Covid vaccine.
Stewie then takes out his teleportation device and transports himself with Brian directly into Peter’s bloodstream, where he launches into an explanation of how vaccines exactly work, both in general and in relation to Covid, using a bit of humor in the universe (for example, the Covid spike protein looks like the frequently maligned Meg Griffin).
The PSA was created in partnership with the Advertising Council’s It’s Up To You initiative, which aims to educate viewers about the virus.
“With millions of Americans still unsure of getting their COVID-19 vaccine, it’s more important than ever that we have smart, informative and entertaining messages like this that will build confidence in vaccines,” said Lisa Sherman, CEO of the Ad Council. “This new work from Seth MacFarlane and the family guy brings vital vaccine information to the public in a new and hilarious way that will surely inspire people to take the next step in slowing the pandemic. We are grateful to our partners at Disney and Fox for their passion and collaboration at this pivotal time. “
Longtime animated sitcom executive producers Richard Appel and Alec Sulkin said, “We were proud to work with some of the country’s leading immunologists and epidemiologists on this PSA. And although we never understood a single note they gave us, we took them all. “
