Seth McFarlane‘s Ted certainly had no shortage of jokes, which is true of nearly everything that McFarlane has been involved with thus far, with the notable exception of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. That isn’t to say all the jokes (or, hell, even most of them) worked. McFarlane is of the clown-car brand of comedy, stuffing and cramming as much pop culture knowledge, immature guffaws, and crass politics into each minute of screen time available to him. It’s why most of the best material in Ted was gleaned in clips and the trailers before the film was even released. The same may be true of Ted 2, which recently took over MTV in anticipation of the MTV Movie Awards and debuted an exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy.
The clip features Mark Wahlberg‘s John Bennett and McFarlane’s Ted meeting with their lawyer, played by Amanda Seyfried, and spiraling out into the familiar kind of riffing on law terminology. It’s a short clip, sandwiched between Mountain Dew ads and some (suprise!) dick-centric joshing between Wahlberg and MTV personality Josh Horowitz, but it gives a pretty solid sense of what’s in store for Ted 2. Meanwhile, McFarlane’s Family Guy and American Dad! continue their seemingly endless runs on Fox, and Wahlberg, who produced the upcoming Entourage movie, will next be seen in William Monahan‘s Mojave, as well as Sean Anders and John Mitchell‘s comedy Daddy’s Home. Seyfried can currently be seen in Noah Baumbach‘s lovely While We’re Young and will play Mary in Joe Wright‘s hotly anticipated Peter Pan adaptation, Pan.
Ted 2 will see wide release on June 26th via Universal Pictures. Check out the exclusive clip below:
