Video: ‘Family Guy’ pokes fun at New Orleans’ parade culture

Family Guy has made a few jokes about New Orleans over the years. They even built a whole episode—”Cool Hand Peter”—around the Crescent City back in 2011. 

The long-running Fox cartoon got another one in this past Sunday, and this time the subject was brass band parades. In typical Family Guy fashion, the setup was essentially a non-sequitur that added nothing to the plot. Obviously the show was poking fun at a New Orleans tradition, but at least they eventually conclude that parades are too fun to be a nuisance.

    Lol love FG.

  • This one really hit home for me LOL!!!! As an ex-cabdriver and FQ musician your trying to get to work and BAM!!!! (just like Chef Emerald) there’s a parade in your way! Outta nowhere. And in most cases you’re stuck with no way out. They don’t announce these pop-up parades they just happen! Luckily most of the boss’ accept the “I was stuck behind parade” excuse because it’s happen to them too….
