Video: Seth MacFarlane Plays Ted Via Motion Capture

The title character in Ted is a motion capture creation with the voice, and as you'll see, the candy-fellating, cash register-humping moves of writer-director Seth MacFarlane.

I fear this video will be NSFW in some places. Shame really, because he's just a cute little teddy bear.

I'm really intrigued by this film. Family Guy and American Dad just don't do anything for me, but there's an idea here, spinning a certain kind of male behaviour and arrested development on its furry, pot-foggy head, that really appeals.

The human cast are enticing too. This is what Wahlberg was born for.

Ted opens across the US this weekend and comes to the UK on Wednesday 1st of August.
