Seth MacFarlane’s New Movie ‘Ted’ Has a Special Trailer for the F Word

Seth MacFarlane’s first movie Ted has two trailers, one that is liberally sprinkled with F bombs, and another, for wider audiences, that omits them. The promo approved for everyone still hangs on to scenes of the teddy bear (the Ted of the title) smoking pot and humping a cash register, but the language has been cleaned up.

Ted is about a little boy who grows up to be Mark Wahlberg, gets a girlfriend (Mila Kunis), and continues to live with his talking bear best friend. This is MacFarlane’s first movie and will be released in the summer. You know MacFarlane best for his work on Family Guy. Both promos were released over the past few days.

The movie was first introduced during SXSW. In addition to the personal appearance, the film has a Facebook page (from Ted’s point of view), a website, and a pretty funny Twitter feed, also in Ted’s voice. Sample tweet: “‘Fuck yoooooooo-ooo-hoooo!’ (fired guy leaving Yahoo.)”

The all-audience-approved trailer above, the NSFW version (turn down the volume) below.
