Simpletons thrilled as Anchorman 2 is announced by Will Ferrell
WHILE there is nothing quite as funny as an unexpected fart, there’s comedy that’s so puerile that you have to wonder what kind of person actively seeks it out and enjoys it. Who on Earth watches Adam Sandler films? Plankton? Equally as bad, but oddly, given the credible thumbs up, is the awful Will Ferrell who has spoiled everyone’s year by announcing the return of Ron Burgundy in Anchorman 2.
Will Ferrell, dressed in character and playing jazz flute, stopped by Conan O’Brien’s talk show last night to break the news that Paramount Pictures has officially greenlit a sequel to 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
First Burgundy ribbed Conan saying, “You look awful. You look like someone put a bright big fright wig on a skeleton. … I’m being kind right now.”
“So you came on the show to play the flute and insult me?” said Conan. “No, I actually have an announcement,” said Ferrell. “As of oh-nine-hundred Mountain Time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman. It is official: There will be a sequel to Anchorman.”
He then played more jazz flute as he exited the stage, and gawping morons whooped and clapped like it was the greatest thing they’d ever seen, leaving everyone else thoroughly confused by it all.
