Bismarck, North Dakota got a new anchorman yesterday. Will Ferrell portrayed his alter ego, Rob Burgundy, behind the anchors’ desk of a local newscast, as part of press tour for Anchorman 2.
Burgundy read news stories and bantered with the local news team with characteristic wit. He hilariously slid into anchor Amber Schatz’s screen while she read a story, noting after the sports segment: “I’ve never seen fighting in a hockey match before. That was fascinating.”
Anchorman 2 is to be released in theaters December 18th. You stay classy, Bismarck.
