Seth MacFarlane makes merry with news of Oscar host [Video]

As a taste of things to come, Seth MacFarlane has some fun breaking the news that he will be hosting the 85th annual Academy Awards. 

In the video below, posted on the official Oscars YouTube channel, he tells his “father” about his upcoming gig. However, he does not get the reaction he was hoping for, as MacFarlane senior is far more interested in giving his son some used bathing suits. When he is not thanked in the way he wants, he yanks them back so that he can give them to 9-time Oscar host Billy Crystal
