If you’re ever featured in, or attending an event that is featured in an episode of the animated TV series, Family Guy, you may want to think twice about doing whatever it is that you’re planning. Especially if that episode is broadcast within days or hours of when the actual event is scheduled to take place.
That’s because multiple times throughout the years, just prior to some sort of tragedy that occurs around the country, from those as epic as 9/11, to individual or smaller scale tragedies involving only one or two people, way too many coincidences have occurred eerily linking popular TV shows made by producer Seth MacFarlane with some of the most high-profile of those events. Each and every time, the airing of a certain MacFarlane produced TV show will precede an event than ends up playing out in reality strangely familiar to what occurred, or was referenced someway, in the show.
Many will remember the buzz that was created, for instance, after it came out that an episode of Family Guy, “Turban Cowboy,” the 15th episode of the season and airing less than a month prior to the Boston Marathon bombings on March 17, 2013, showed images of Peter unwittingly setting off two individual bombs and only seconds apart with a cell phone that was given to him by Muslim terrorists he unwittingly joins forces with. Just after running over people in his car at the Boston Marathon and leaving mangled bodies all over the road near the finish line, in the same episode. Practically forcing MacFarlane to answer questions regarding the likelihood these segments in the show could have been a simple coincidence, considering the startling similarities to the event that took place soon thereafter.
If it takes more than one extremely unlikely coincidence to even begin making you ponder whether or not there may be much more to the story than meets the eye, however, an episode of another show produced by MacFarlane, American Dad, then followed on the very day before the Boston Marathon bombings showing one of the characters, Schmuely "Snot" Lonstein, referencing “two blasts” in the show entitled, “The Missing Kink,” as he talks with another character in the show about something unrelated. Also the 15th episode in its perspective season. Making an even stronger case for those already having trouble believing the first example could have been mere coincidence.
As if that alone wasn’t enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, despite MacFarlane calling Turban Cowboy a sheer coincidence and any accusations pointing to otherwise “abhorrent,” the suicide episode of Family Guy, “Fatman and Robin,” and this time with animated guest Robin Williams, just so happened to be re-airing on the BBC as the news broke Aug. 11 that the actual Robin Williams had just allegedly done that very thing. Williams literally committing suicide, according to official reports, just as the episode was simultaneously suggesting, with Peter instead making multiple suicide attempts during the show that also included Robin Williams as a guest. Another startling “coincidence” that the BBC merely shrugged off as a random occurrence and impossible to have predicted. Despite pulling the episode from a scheduled re-airing, just as FOX did for Turban Cowboy.
But those aren’t the only times episodes of Family Guy and/or American Dad have predated an unfortunate or tragic event that makes worldwide news and also has miraculous references in them to what ends up taking place weeks, days, or even hours later. Back in 2001, only days prior to the 9/11 terror attacks, the 08/29/01 Family Guy episode, “The Kiss Seen Around the World,” makes references to the “New World Order” at the very moment the Neil Goldman character is kissed by the Meg Griffin character in an act of fulfilling Neil’s desperation. The same New World Order many who don’t believe the official line on the 9/11 terrorist attacks do think is the pivotal or catalyzing event for, nonetheless.
While only six days prior to the tragic and allegedly accidental 11/30/13 death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, who played a character named “Brian” in the popular and long-running movie series, was the airing of the memorably shocking, “The Life of Brian” Family Guy episode. Where Brian the family dog is also struck down by a speeding and out of control car.
Both situations that seemed both odd and out of place to both the fans of Family Guy, as well as Paul Walker’s bewildered family respectively. Who also came out an admitted to a disbelief in the official version of Walker’s untimely death, not long after it happened. mirror
