Twentieth Century Fox today became responsible for a dip in productivity as fans use its new online app to morph themselves into Family Guy characters. Regrettably, getting voiced by Seth MacFarlane is not one of the included options.

The network is about to release Family Guy Online, a free-to-play game based on the TV show. Once live, fans can use their Quahogite digital self as a 3D playable character in the game “so you can play with yourself all day long,” as the game’s website phrases it.

In the meantime, the online app is being sponsored by Columbia Pictures’ and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ 21 Jump Street, which opens March 16.
