The great Ron Burgundy surprised TV viewers in Bismark, N.D., this weekend by appearing on an actual newscast, reading actual news.
Burgundy of course is the fictional altar-ego of actor/comedian Will Ferrell, created for Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004). Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will release on Dec. 18.
He engaged in witty banter with KXMB’s Saturday night news team, disrupted anchor Amber Schatz while she read a story and hilariously botched his own catchphrase, “Stay classy,” when it appeared on the teleprompter, saying, “What? Am I supposed to read that?”
“Amber, you look lovely tonight. Are you married?” Ferrell asked a giggling Schatz. When she said no, he responded: “Well I am, so don’t get any ideas.”
And when one of the hosts asked ‘Ron’ how long it took him to grow his famous ‘stache, Ferrell joked: “Twenty minutes.”
Of course it’s all part of Ferrell’s promotional rounds for the upcoming release ofAnchorman 2: The Legend Continues and no doubt viewers across the Midwest will be keeping a closer eye on their local newscasts hoping for another surprise appearance.
