One of the great aspects of Will Ferrell is the lengths he’s willing to go in support of his projects. In case you haven’t heard “Anchorman 2″ drops this Christmas, and this Fall we’ve been treated to some great surprise Ron Burgundy appearances. His commercial for Dodge ended up being the best part of the NFL’s opening weeks.
The Dodge commercial proved that Ron Burgundy could sell, and now with the movie only a few short weeks away Ferrell has popped up again in a classic situation. Ron Burgundy surprised the viewers of KXMB News in Bismarck, North Dakota by popping up working the Saturday night Anchor desk. Burgundy ended up hosting the entire 30 min newscast. The amazing clip is below, and a perfect Monday diversion.
Here’s the official preview of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”
With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy while taking the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
