‘Family Guy’ Pokes Fun at ‘Baby Man’ Billy Corgan Being Sad at Disneyland
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan was a surprise guest on Family Guy, but not in animated form. Instead, a photo of Corgan looking sad at Disneyland appeared in one of Peter Griffin’s thought bubbles.
In 2015, Billy visited Disneyland for a day of family-friendly fun, but he was apparently bummed out about being approached by fans all day. Thus, when a fan snapped a photo of Corgan taking a ride on Disney’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, the Smashing Pumpkins legend met their lens with some serious glumface.
Family Guy must have been dying to poke fun at Corgan for a while, because they crowbarred him into a joke. While pondering a math problem, Peter Griffin’s mind jumped to Corgan at Disneyland. “Whoops, I stopped thinking about math and started thinking about baby man Billy Corgan being sad at Disneyland,” Griffin says.
Billy Corgan feeling sad at The Happiest Place on Earth is perfect fodder, but the musician explained his melancholy during a Q&A with fans. “I literally had somebody say to me the other day, I think it was at Disneyland: ‘Hey, you don’t seem that into this.’ I was like, ‘I’m at f—king Disneyland. I just want to hang out at Disneyland. I’m not here to do a meet and greet, I’m here to be at Disneyland.’ You know what I’m saying?” Corgan expressed.
“But it’s almost like, ‘Well you’re here, and I’m here, and because I’m on my vacation, your vacation, you’re part of my vacation.’ It’s like, I’m not working, and I wasn’t being unpleasant, I wasn’t being rude. I was taking pictures with people, I took a picture with every person that asked. But then it gets into, what’s in your head? Like, you’re not smiling enough, or you don’t seem to be enjoying – and I’m like, what the fuck do you want from me?” [via Alternative Nation]
