“It is a warm, fuzzy, f***ed up fairy tale,” so says Seth McFarlane – writer, director and the voice for its cuddly lead in Ted. In his first feature length movie, the creator of Family Guy and American Dad has taken a typical bro-mance story and garnished it with humour like you never imagined. After we previewed the trailer a few months back and ranked this the third must-see summer movie this year – we’ve been blessed with a featurette that shows…. a little more then what we were expecting!
Highlights in this clip include Ted imitating how a Boston girl has an orgasm, Ted expressing his thanks to a set of terrible fathers and Ted looking forward to his celebratory ‘treat’ whether he gets the job or not he got dressed up for. This is basically Ted’s movie. The clue is in the title. And in a very perverse way… we’d really like to know what a dirty fozzy is. Macfarlane ends the clip claiming he doesn’t see this as a ‘Hard R’ rated movie – it then cuts to a scene where Ted has drawn Garfield on a woman’s body. Without her top on. This is magic!
The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Set Macfarlane and will puff marijuana smoke over these shores come August 1st.
