    I feel that in everyone's head - mine included - this is going to be amazing and hilarious. However, in Academy Awards reality, it'll probably be really really cheesy and lame. Guess we'll have to wait and see, but I won't get my hopes up.

    Awesome! Although I hope he has a better Ted than the one on that pic, it looks nothing like the Ted in the movie!

    Should be fun! Hope they have some dialogue recorded in the bear that we can hear while he's with Mark!
