This Family Guy Scene Went Viral On TikTok And Fans Are Buzzing Over It

TikTok is the latest social media app that has all the kids talking (at least until their parents figure out what it is and create accounts). For now, it's the place to go when you want to watch people dance to the latest pop songs, explain the machinations of a country's political systems, or review the latest movies. All that and more is found on TikTok!

The way it works is that you create an account and can follow people. However, suppose you want more of a general sense of what the population's feeling at a given time. In that case, you can head to the For You page to check out a random assortment of videos not necessarily dictated by who you follow. That means any video has the potential to go viral if it manages to find an audience. 

Sometimes, this leads to some truly random viral videos, including one that's simply a scene from "Family Guy" back in Season 8. While it seems like a random scene to take off, it's clear from the comments there's one reason why everyone has something to say about it. 

Fans point out that's not how gravity works

The "Family Guy" scene in question sees Peter play the wishbone game with Lois. Peter gets the bigger half of the wishbone, which means he gets a wish. He hurriedly nails his chair to the floor when everything and everyone else suddenly goes flying to the ceiling. Peter then smugly says to himself, "Ha! No gravity."

It's a funny scene, but there's no real reason why it should've racked up 3.3 million likes and 20 million views on its own. As it turns out, engagement is king over on TikTok, and thousands of people have taken to the comment section to make one decided point: That's not how gravity would work if it suddenly went away. One user wrote, "Technically that's inverted gravity." Someone else chimed in with, "That doesn't even make sense. That's just like reverse gravity." There's also the matter of the Earth itself spinning really fast, so people wouldn't have merely gone up; they would've flown to the side, as well. Plus, the house itself should've been ripped from its foundation, but listen, it's a cartoon. 

One shouldn't expect the utmost scientific accuracy from a show like "Family Guy." It's all part of delivering a joke as efficiently as possible, and simply saying, "No gravity," is the best way to go about that for this scenario. It's many more views than the channel typically gets, so it was a smart decision to upload it.
