Real Life Peter Griffin Robert Franzese Nails 'Family Guy' Dad (Video)

"Family Guy" father Peter Griffin has a real-life counterpart, Robert Franzese, who attends conventions and plays the part of the animated character, down to the white shirt, green pants, and attitude.

Boom! Big Pants made a documentary of Franzese in his Griffin persona at the 2014 Comic-Con, and it’s already gotten more than 4 million views in the first two days it was up.

Seth MacFarlane, “Family Guy” creator, picked up on the documentary and tweeted about it, no doubt accounting for some of those views.



In the video, cosplayer Franzese said he goes to Comic-Con because it’s amazing. “It’s like going to Disney World but being a geek,” he said.

“Impressions came naturally to me, like in an instant,” Franzese said of his Griffin characterization. “So I slapped together stuff that I had. I happened to have green pants from St. Patrick’s Day, and I had a white button-down shirt 'cause everybody has one. I had round glasses 'cause I do Santa Claus for my company. And I slapped it together, and I was like, great, Peter Griffin. Just one stupid joke where I go to the ATM and the money came out and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I won.’ From then on, it caught like wildfire.”

“You sound exactly like Peter Griffin,” a woman at Comic-Con told him on the video.

Fans of “Family Man” were enthralled with Franzese’s spot-on impersonation.



Franzese has a YouTube page where he posts other observations as Griffin, including Christmas greetings.

Warning: Video contains profanity.
