I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a movie more vehemently marketed to sports fans than Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. It doesn’t even open until December 18 and already we’ve had Will Ferrell in-character hosting Canadian Olympic curling trials, an Anchorman interview with Peyton Manning and a planned hosting gig on SportsCenter that got canceled when awful things happened in real life. Just yesterday, Andrew Roberts posting a picture of Ron Burgundy standing on a street corner holding donuts and a 40 for ‘The Dan Patrick Show.’
Here’s the good news: that wasn’t the only thing Dan Patrick is contributing to the incessant Anchorman 2 media blitz. Here he is laughing in the background and failing to use Yes And while Ron Burgundy reads (and improvs over) some of the greatest sports broadcasting calls in history. Doug Flutie’s hail mary? Check. Kirk Gibson’s home run? Check. Mankind being thrown off the Hell in a Cell?
Okay, they’re not all in here, but it’s pretty great.
Tomorrow: Ron Burgundy spends the entire ACC Championship game making jokes about Jameis Winston out of spite. On Sunday, every Cleveland Browns player has Ron Burgundy’s face digitally replacing their own.
