Ron Burgundy is giving you all the latest headlines…for real!
Will Ferrell, as Ron Burgundy, is promoting “Anchorman 2” by making an appearance on KXMB-TV, a local news station in Bismarck, North Dakota.
Ferrell hosted the post-Iron Bowl broadcast alongside anchor Amber Schatz, who clearly had a tough time not busting out laughing during the newcast.
The newsman, wearing his burgundy polyester suit, helped anchor the KXMB evening newscast on Saturday, Nov. 30.
The half-hour CBS affiliate program began with a quick video of holiday shoppers steering clear of big stores and opting to support smaller businesses, also known as Small Business Saturday.
As soon as the short story, read by weekend cohost Amber Schatz, was finished, the duo was unveiled at the anchor desk.
Ferrell then declared, “I’m Ron Burgundy, thank you for joining us tonight” before launching into the latest headlines.
The funnyman star of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” did manage to drop a few funny lines during the broadcast. He asked his cohost, “Amber, you look lovely tonight, are you married?”
Amber Schatz admitted she was not married, before Ferrell quipped, “well I am, so don’t get any ideas.”
Ferrell also expressed that he is “fond” of mustaches right before another host asked Ferrell how long it took him to grow his famous facial hair.
“This? About 20 minutes,” he joked.
