One Direction might be on hiatus, but the British boy band will briefly reunite – in cartoon form – this Sunday when the Made in the A.M. group appear on Family Guy. Entertainment Weekly has shared one of One Direction’s cameos from the “Run, Chris, Run” episode, with the quartet appearing in one of Stewie’s non sequitur flashbacks.
In the scene, the youngest Griffin brags to the family dog Brian about his ability to connect with the younger generation, which then cuts to a campfire scene where Stewie is telling One Direction scary stories. “So they checked into their hotel suite, but the minibar had no sparkling water, only still!,” Stewie tells the horrified group.
Although all four members of the group were animated for the episode, only two – Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – contributed their voices to their cartoon personas. “Liam and Louis were very funny and an absolute pleasure to work with,” Family Guy co-executive producer Cherry Chevapravatdumrong said in a statement to EW. “Or, as the Directioner part of me would say, ‘OMG LILO I’M SCREAMING!'”
One Direction won’t be the only X Factor vets to appear on the May 15th episode as judge Simon Cowell is also expected to reprise his “As Himself” role on the show in 2007.
