‘Ted’ is a sex symbol for Plushies!

This past Friday was the theatrical release of Seth MacFarlane‘s first film Ted, which follows the traditional route of schlubby slacker (for some reason played with the impeccably cut Mark Wahlberg) with the understanding but way-too-good-for-him girlfriend (Mila Kunis, who’s perfect for this kind of part) and the wise-cracking best friend who shouldn’t talk but does, which is wacky and zany and wackedy-shmakedy-doo! This time, Seth made the wacky non-talking-talking best friend a teddy bear, which instantly became a sex symbol in the Plushie community. TMZ reports:

Turns out, Ted has become a breakout star in the Plushie community … a group of people with a fetish for stuffed animals and things of the furry sort. In fact, Ted creator Seth MacFarlane has already been contacted by a XXX website that’s popular with Plushies, Clips4Sale.com, in the hopes they can acquire the rights to use Ted’s image and make him the site’s new mascot. The site fired off a letter to Seth saying, “Not since Alf has there been this kind of excitement over a stuffed animal.” The letter continues, “We are very serious and would like to engage in talks with you at your earliest convenience.”

I know pPlushies and Furries are sort of the web’s whipping boy, but to be honest, I don’t see why. I mean yes, it’s weird and not something I necessarily get into, but there are a lot of weird fetishes I don’t get into; that doesn’t necessarily give me the moral high ground in any sort of way. Everyone has something weird that jacks their daniels (for me: NASCAR crashes. Ohmygodyes.) so picking on someone else’s thing is like trying to get the speck out of their eye when you have a log in yours.
