Christmas-themed Rush reference on the latest episode of Family Guy

Sun, Dec 11, 2016@10:44PM | comments

After featuring a major Rush reference on the show just a few weeks ago, tonight's episode (Season 15, Episode 9 - How the Griffin Stole Christmas) of the animated Fox sitcom Family Guy featured yet another Rush reference. At one point in the show Stewie laments about how he has ruined Christmas and says, "like the Little Drummer Boy when he got really into Neil Peart". They then cut to a scene of the Little Drummer Boy playing his signature song to the baby Jesus. In the middle of the song he throws away his single drum for a Neil Peart-inspired 13-drum kit and breaks into an epic drum solo as seen in this clip (thanks John at Cygnus-X1.net).
