Never before has there been a more inspired match of social media innovation and foul-mouthed CG-animation than Jetset Studios’ latest creation: a Facebook Timeline for Universal Studios’ upcoming film, Ted — the tale of a lewd, crude, and frequently stoned talking teddy bear, written, directed and voiced by Seth MacFarlane.
Jetset Studios is proud to be one of the first creative agencies to use Timeline — social media’s newest love-hate obsession — to its full storytelling advantage. We’re creating a series of original content pieces that extend the character of Ted into the real world, letting fans in on Ted’s backstory and his hilarious regression from adorably stuffed childhood star to fallen icon to the obnoxiously crass and emotionally stunted best friend of Mark Wahlberg’s character, John Bennett.
“Seth MacFarlane is an amazing innovator who has pushed the boundaries of televised entertainment to great effect. His signature characters, like Family Guy’s Peter Griffin and Stewie, are now permanently entrenched in the pop culture that he sends up so brilliantly. For Seth’s first motion picture, we are thrilled to be helping tell Ted’s backstory across the social web,” Jetset CEO Russell Scott says.payday loans
Launched on April Fool’s Day, the Ted Facebook Timeline has already gotten over 115k Likes, and updates are being shared hundreds of times across multiple social channels.
