The cast of “Better Off Ted” is back together.
The late, lamented ABC comedy isn’t coming back on the air, unfortunately, but the reason for their reunion — a music video from one of their own, Malcolm Barrett — is not a bad consolation prize.
Better still, Barrett’s single, “Revenge of the Nerds,” is pretty darn good.
Barrett, who played Lem on “Better Off Ted” and also co-stars in “Larry Crowne,” is also a spoken-word artist and rapper who goes by the name Verbal. “Revenge of the Nerds” is his first single, and it features cameos by his “Ted” co-stars Jonathan Slavin (Phil), Portia DeGeneres (Veronica), Jay Harrington (Ted) and Andrea Anders (Linda), along with series creator Victor Fresco.
“Revenge of the Nerds” is part of a yet-to-be-released album called “The Backpacker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” The video is below, and you’re a fan of “Better Off Ted” (or of old-school hip-hop from the likes of De La Soul), you’ll probably enjoy it. (There’s a little bit of NSFW language.)
