‘Ted’ Trailer – What’s the Song?
Heading to the theater this weekend to see the new comedy ‘Ted‘? Well, before you do, let’s get you up to speed on the music they’ve been using in the film’s trailer.
If you’re only noticing Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg looking lovingly at each other in bed, you might think this is a chick flick in the making. Add in the subtle falsetto of the Temper Trap‘s Dougy Mandagi singing the band’s giant 2009 single ‘Sweet Disposition’ off their ‘Conditions’ album in the background, and bam — instant rom-com.
But wait! This is no romantic comedy. Not when ‘Family Guy’ creator and voice actor Seth MacFarlane is involved. ‘Ted’ is about as raunchy as you can get, with its full -grown teddy bear that’s become a living entity. In fact, it serves as Wahlberg’s best friend and a consistent nuisance to his love life.
Ted’s antics like inviting hookers over for company are soundtracked in the trailer by the aggressively funky single ‘How You Like Me Now’ from British rock band the Heavy off of their 2009 album, ‘The House That Dirt Built.’
Incidentally, both the Heavy and the Temper Trap have returned with new albums this year. The Heavy are hyping ‘The Glorious Dead,’ while the Temper Trap went the self-titled route with their sophomore set.
