Please don’t confuse this movie with the TED conference. The TED conference is this painfully cool thing where painfully cool people deliver little talks that you see live if you’re lucky or otherwise on line. Ask if you can go. I tried once, and it’s a great way to find out where you are on your corporate totem pole. Turns out I’m near the bottom. You know how there’s often an eagle head at the top? I can’t even see the underbeak from my vantage point. Technically, I’m below the ground. When they dig the hole, and there’s an unpainted part that goes in the hole, that’s me. So, no TED conference.
Ted the movie, though, was probably more fun. Marky Mark was good, this is the kind of character you can totally believe him as, even if Mila seems like a stretch. Also, the bear is pretty amazing. Truly funny and the CGI or whatever it is really makes it come to life. Everyone in the film deals with the live stuffed bear as if it were a common thing, so that’s a good sign for the rights of live stuffed bears everywhere. If you were a live stuffed bear and lived in fear of the public knowing your awesome secret, well, this movie should encourage you to go public.
In fact, I’d like to ask any/all live stuffed bears to please contact me. I’ll be your agent. Probably get us both a gig at the next TED conference.
