Ted 2 Super Bowl Spot Review

Preface

  • This year’s Super Bowl was a really solid game (from the point of view of a big New England fan…) but the trailers were kinda lackluster!
  • But then there was one deep into the game that stood out about the others…

Trailer Talk

  • So yeah, there was a longer Ted 2 trailer that was released earlier this week and it was okay.
    • It definitely showed more of the movie’s plot than the best jokes, which I think is a positive thing, though I only laughed out loud twice and once was just a chuckle.
    • This one though!
    • This trailer was hilarious!
  • So you saw in the first trailer what the premise of this movie is: Ted needs to be legalized so he and his girlfriend (or I guess now wife?) can have a baby.
  • But they need a sperm donor, so what to do? Break into Tom Brady’s house of course.
  • Seth MacFarlane does these celebrity cameos really well, so this was hilarious and the best possible ad to do during the Super Bowl.
  • Seeing Tom Brady freak out on Mark Wahlberg and a plush bear was awesome and then the end joke just did it for me.
    • He throws Ted out and into Mark Wahlberg’s hands, and Mark Wahlberg is like, “the perfect spiral!”
  • That was funnier for me than the crude and almost taboo jokes that filled up the original trailer.
    • Granted, I like the premise of the sequel but I don’t want it to seem dumb and horribly different compared to the original.
    • The original Ted was really vulgar but never got to the point of being crude or ‘too-far.’
    • So when they announced Ted 2, I thought it would be a great idea as long as it wasn’t too crude or stupid.
    • And as long as the entire movie of Ted 2 isn’t filled with jokes about the blind guy in the diner, I think we’re good.
  • I didn’t see A Million Ways to Die in the West, so I can’t judge Seth MacFarlane based on.
    • Though if Ted 2 is anything like it (and what I hear around the web) then it could get cartoony fast.
    • But I have a feeling that this Tom Brady bit isn’t the best celebrity cameo in Ted 2, unlike what seemed to be the best one from A Million to Die in the West (seen below).

In Conclusion

  • In conclusion, I wasn’t totally psyched for Ted 2 after seeing the first trailer, but I wasn’t worried about it either.
  • I guess if anything, the Super Bowl Spot did get me back on the side of the movie, though I am anxious to see the whole thing now and actually see how the entire product turns out.
