Launching their fake political campaign at The Grove, Ferrell and Galifianakis are also scheduled to continue their 'The Whistle Stop' tour in nine other big cities.


Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis have stolen the crowd's attention on Tuesday morning, July 17 as they hit The Grove in Los Angeles to launch their fake political tour to promote "The Campaign". Clad in formal outfits, the two funnymen stood on podiums and greeted the crowd.

"Thank you for coming out to the historic Grove," Ferrell confidently said as Galifianakis chimed in, "Where even the homeless people are fake." Ferrell played a longtime incumbent congressman Cam Brady, who made a blunder that caused a wealthy businessman to support his political rival.

The said rival was none other than Galifianakis' Marty Huggins, a newcomer politician who was also the leader of a local tourism center. Unlike Brady who looked very ambitious with his political idealism, Higgins was more like a family man who lived in a modest life.

During the Tuesday promotional event, both Ferrell and Galifianakis were asked by an audience about how they would win the vote among Latino people. Ferrell jokingly responded, "Zach and I have been spending a lot of time with Ricky Martin lately," while his co-star added, "We were at Carlos Santana's house last night. He was helpful. Who else - Will? Garrison Keiller, big Hispanic. No? Nothing? Good."

When asked how did the two score the role of the political rivals, Ferrell joked, "I auditioned for Batman. But Warner Bros. said it was already taken." Galifianakis, on the other hand, gushed, "And I auditioned for Fatman. That was taken also."

To open wide in the U.S. on August 10, "The Campaign" has been scheduled to throw an 11-city tour called "The Whistle Stop". After Los Angeles, the two lead actors will stop by St. Louis, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, Toronto, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. The tour will finish on July 31.
