Just two days after the untimely demise of Family Guy’s top dog, Brian Griffin, a mysterious micro-site has popped up whose sole purpose seems to be to count down to “a special announcement from… ” the deceased.
For the record, a 20th Century Fox rep tells TVLine, “The producers have confirmed that the ‘special announcement from Brian’ website is a hoax and was not created by anyone connected to the show, studio or network.”
But even before the site surfaced, fans — and some members of the media — have questioned whether Brian’s passing is an elaborate publicity stunt.
Our hunch is that it will be revealed that rumors of beloved boozehound’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Well, that, or he’s being resurrected. Consider the plot of the animated hit’s Dec. 15 “Christmas Guy” episode: Stewie hatches a plan to get “the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.”
Since we all know what “the one and only thing he wants for Christmas” is — his BFF, alive and kicking — it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do the math!
So what do you think? Will Stewie’s scheme work? Will we be saying “Welcome back, Brian! Hasta la vista, Vinny!” before the New Year ball drops? Hit the comments!
