Microsoft and FOX One have announced a marketing collaboration that will see Windows 7 in a new special with the working title "Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show" airing Sunday, November 8, at 8:30pm EST and PST. It will star Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show as well as his Family Guy co-star Alex Borstein (voice of the series' Lois character).

There will be no commercial ad time, no network promotions, and no commercial breaks—just a 30-minute Windows 7 trailer that somehow attempts to blend the operating system with show content in the style of the old Texaco Star Theater. MacFarlane and Borstein have teamed with Windows advertising agencies Universal McCann and Crispin, Porter + Bogusky to develop, write, and produce the half-hour special that will highlight the comedy duo's humor with original animation, live-action performances of Family Guy's most memorable musical numbers, comedy sketches, and surprise celebrity guests.

This is all part of Microsoft's pitch to younger audiences. In September 2009, Microsoft announced that it would be selling Windows 7 to students for cheaper, so we had a hunch and headed over to win741.com, where the announcement was first made. We found what we were looking for. If you don't want to see the Silverlight version, we've uploaded the short clip of Family Guy's Brian and Stewie discussing Windows 7 and embedded it below:
