‘Family Guy’ Boston Marathon Explosion Clip is an Internet Hoax [VIDEOS]

Perhaps you’ve seen the clip on YouTube that alleges the Fox TV series ‘Family Guy’ predicted the Boston Marathon Explosion.  Watch both the hoax clip and the actual sequence from the episode.

These clips were taken from an episode called ‘Turban Cowboy‘ which originally aired on March 17, just shy of a month before the marathon bombing.

Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane has spoken out about the controversy and described those who attempted to make a connection by splicing together different scenes in the episode ‘abhorrent.’

Another Seth McFarlane series, American Dad, has also been pointed out in having a scene prescient of the bombings.

NOTE – these pieces of animation may be offensive at this time.  
Also these clips are being removed with some regularity by YouTube due to copyright claims by MGM. We’ll do our best to keep up with the clips – but if you run into a bum link, that’s the reason.
