The Cool Whip Matter
"Barely Legal," the fifth episode of Season Eight, re-introduced twentysomethings to Cool Whip, that faux-whipped cream childhood staple. The scene at left represents one of Family Guy's greatest viral successes: To date, it's racked up more than 36 million YouTube hits. And like everyone, Kunis has her thoughts on proper pronunciation. "I go 'Cool Wip', minus the H," she says. Despite the clip's ubiquity, the actress never hears its lines quoted back to her. Instead, she gets, "'Shut up, Meg.' That's the number one quote I get on the streets all day long from everything that I've done," says Kunis. "'Shut up, Meg.' All the time. 'Shut up, Meg.' It's been 15 years! 'Shut up, Meg.' All I can do is laugh."
