I'm sure there's already a thread like this somewhere on here but I couldn't find it.

Let me just say I'm a Huge Seth MacFarland fan. Ted, Ways To Die In The West, Family Guy, American Dad. All of it. That being said, I feel on several occasions Seth slips in something eyebrow raising. In one of the Christmas episodes Stewie make a joke about greyhounds in a dumpster or something and Brian says "don't joke about that! That's like our holocaust." To which Stewie responds "yeah well when Greyhounds start controlling the world bank and the New York Times I'll be more inclined to believe you."

In the Hurricane episode of American Dad the opening credits say American Dad presents on conjunction with the Gay/Zionist media conspiracy

In the Simpsons Crossover episode, the Now Entering Springfield sign has a sign for restrooms, food, an exit, and a yellow eye of providence.

In the episode where Cleveland takes Brian's girl, when her and Brian first meet in a library, over Brian's shoulder is an unnamed book with an eye of providence on it. In between them is a copy Of The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

I've seen All of these online before. The one I don't see people talk about is the advertisement for Family Guy on Netflix. It shows the Griffins having a picnic. Meg is dropping a hotdog and a mustard stain on her shirt has a black squiggle in it. It's really out of place looking although it fits the theme of mustard stain. It looks blatantly like a Masonic compass. I made the post mainly to bring this one particularly to people attention because I noticed it a long time ago and never saw anyone else online bring it up.

For some reason it won't let me upload a picture of it. I'll keep trying if anyone knew what I'm talking about please post it thanks in advance. Also this thread isn't intended to be only about family guy. Feel free to bring any show up!

I'm pretty sure that it's humor based on how the norms see conspiracy theory. No hidden messages, just writers being clever and referential. There's also the old (like season 4 or something) casino episode of the Simpsons where a delusional Mr Burns sees germs that chant "Freemasons run the country!".

Actually, Seth McFarland was scheduled to be on one of the doomed 9/11 aircraft.

He had a bad hangover and missed his flight.

Clever writing and sublimography (yes I've made the word up) to get you talking about the show.

Seth Mcfarland is a very creative mind, however I feel his talents would be put to better use actually exposing many of the comic undertones he slyly touches on in his shows.

However, it is said that those who make light of serious content have the hardest time dealing with the reality of such unapologetic life occurances. Im pretty sure he'd off himself if he ever decided to do any real investigative journalism due to the sheer horror of what he'd find.

They have been doing this for a long long time.

Me and family have discussions about this all the time. Take a look at how ads follow you online.
For example, lets say you do an online search for an item online... suddenly ads pertaining to that item or similar items start to follow you around. All the ads that have been following you online...begin to learn about you and about what you like. I call them our little friends...lol.

Lets say you have bought one of those TV/Internet/Cell Phone bundle packages. Now your TV/Internet/Cell Phone are all connected. Those ads from online can be inserted into TV programs and Movies.

Lets say that their little programs learned that you like Coca Cola via your online internet activity, the next time you watch TV the drinks inserted into shows are a can of Coca Cola... I haven't really tested this though... I don't watch much TV.

Product placement is done during the preproduction portion of the film or television program you are watching, it has nothing, at this point, to do with tracking. There is a very good documentary about this.

I don't see it as subliminal messaging for a nefarious or surreptitious gain.

They [TV media] use these symbols and messages as they are very much a part of current pop culture.

Look at all the mathematical "in jokes" the Futurama creators put into their shows. Nothing about the made up illuminaughty or NWO -- just having fun to see who was paying attention and on their level of humour.

It's also a way to get the public watching and talking about their shows -- Hey, did you see that weird symbol in show X?

Creates interest. Nothing more.

everywhere you look in music videos and tv series you always see some sort masonic or illuminate ties.
then every jumps on it and stats discussions of " is Jay Z Illuminate because this and that was in his video"

same principle here, it just gives you something to about. most shows have "Easter eggs" in them and its the age where illuminanti are in the lime light so they are more geared towards this genre of Easter eggs.

just my opinion of course

Seems like a perfectly good use of our Masonic control of Hollywood. Much better to put 'Masonic ties' (I actually have one, it's kinda ugly) in movies than mind control Jennifer Aniston to clean my house wearing a skimpy French maid outfit.

the online adds are done by using tracking cookies. They are very much geared towards what your browsing preferences are. Kind of like why Augustusmaonsicus gets a lot of Viagra, enlargement, dating adds.

When your viewing habits are largely Asian midget porn, you never know what the add wizards will throw at you.

Or so I have heard.

I'm fairly certain Seth is Discordian. Discordianism is generally the final step, once you've got the Matrix figured out well enough to sort the hats.

There are a lot of folks walking around the labyrinth who have been inside it for so long they think they have all the answers, but that is part of the illusion.

Humor is an immune response to toxic partially formed reality tunnels; the gordian neuroplastic response to mazes n' monsters is the rejection of serious business. If your concept of truth is not based on humor, you've missed entirely.

3125 is go.

the brutal facts are, seth pokes fun at pop culture and, conspiracies have become part pop culture.
gone are the days of the philadelphia experiment or jfk, step forward the cabal of different secret societies each vying for global domination.
far fetched and easily debunked after 5 minutes sober internet researching?
like the philadelphia experiment, yes.
but, some of the nuttier variety are willing to incorporate anything, and i mean anything into their theories.
a music video with an eye closed for a second means katy perry is subliminally telling you, well something.
rihanna doing devil horns means obey the devil, but its different for rock fans.
jay z making a diamond sign is nothing to do with wealth but, i dunno, egypt?

as pointed out seth was nearly involved on 9/11, no doubt he's looked it over and found the bizarre theories abound, hey an easy target and quick laugh many won't get.
how many non visitors would get this, or this.
some may call it trolling, i find it funny.

Yes that's the old way...product placement in advance, (sponsors for the show or movie or whatever or TV station) however its not impossible to do it the way I've suggested either. Or some other new way. With some pretty snazzy programming, this could be implemented..what I've suggested.

LOL. your bad...

Yes the tracking cookies is what I'm talking about. I see no reason that they have not built this technology on other levels aside from our surfing on the internet. Put it on the phones and TV's too...if they haven't yet, they probly will soon.

After all they have the DVR's that can track which programs you like to watch... and then pull in the programs it thinks you want to see. I see no reason that connections can't or won't be made on deeper levels too.

Hm, there may be a problem defining 'subliminal messaging" here. A couple of decades ago it was tried and essentially discarded because it didn't work.

If it was true subliminal messaging, you wouldn't notice it so readily -- it would be fast and covert. To a large degree, hidden.
