New Red-Band Ted 2 Trailer: Overlong, but That First Gag Is Golden

Hard to believe, but this foul-mouthed trailer for a Seth MacFarlane movie opens with a funny bit that has nothing do with genitalia or vomit jokes.

And then they try to jerk off Tom Brady, and the trailer goes on for three minutes, telling us the entire story and demonstrating that Ted is one angry stoner. Well, we do say we want original franchises, after all – and even if this fails, I think I’d rather have it than a Family Guy movie…although in many ways that’s arguably a distinction without a difference.
