Fox Goes Gun Happy In New Promos For New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine And The Last Man Standing

I am not sure how to take these new video from Fox. In each of the three, they use footage of Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) from Lethal Weapon, firing a sniper rifle over and over to cause things to happen on three of their comedies: The Last Man Standing, New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. All of this set to classical music including: The William Tell Overture, Ride of the Valkyries and Ode to Joy.

I get that their going for comedy here, and no one gets actually shot… but this seems to be a pretty gun happy promo that might not sit well with some. It would not surprise me to see these videos taken down. I'm not sure that "Shooting at people makes funny thing happen," is a message that will go over very well.
