Image of the Day: Ted 2 gets the coolest Flash Gordon inspired poster ever

Flash Gordon and Ted fans rejoice! Universal Pictures has unleashed a new poster for Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2, which is inspired by the theatrical poster of the super-campy sci-fi cult movie.

If you’ve seen Ted, then you know one of the coolest parts in the movie was a rare cameo by Sam J. Jones (who played the titular hero) and the references to Flash Gordon (1980). Jones is back for the sequel, so expect lots more references to the movie -- as evidenced by Exhibit A below:

As you can see, foul-mouthed teddy bear Ted replaces Max von Sydow as Emperor Ming the Merciless. A super-blond Mark Wahlberg stands in for Jones as Flash, while newcomer Amanda Seyfried takes the place of Melody Anderson's Dale Arden. Ted 2 arrives in movie theaters on June 26.
