Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane return for Ted 2, in which Wahlberg plays an adult whose childhood toy has come to life — and now the sentient teddy bear wants to have a child. That poses some obvious potential problems, and the Ted 2 Super Bowl spot is kind of a mini-heist scenario showing how the duo attempts to deal with the situation. Specifically, they try to get Tom Brady to donate a little genetic material to the process… except that he doesn’t know that’s about to happen.
This spot doesn’t even get into all the real meat of the story — that Ted wants to be legally declared human, which puts him before a judge with the help of a lawyer played by Amanda Seyfried. But why waste time on that stuff when there’s a football-appropriate sequence to riff on?
Ted 2 opens on June 26.
