Seth MacFarlane has been selected as the host for the next Academy Awards, and what better way to announce it than in a funny one-minute video for YouTube?
The YouTube clip, released in conjunction with a formal announcement today, features the “Family Guy” and “Ted” creator breaking the news to his father. Normally, any father hearing his son relate a big accomplishment like hosting the Oscars would gush with praise and excitement — not Ronald MacFarlane. Instead, he thought it was a good opportunity to give his son some used bathing suits, which displeases the younger MacFarlane. The whole thing turns in to a hilarious argument about swim trunks that involves the name-dropping of longtime Oscar host Billy Crystal.
Will Seth MacFarlane make a great Oscars host? Watch the clip below and tell us.
