Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell caused a frenzy in Seattle as they showed up at Local Color Cafe in Seattle's Pike Place Market on Thursday, July 19. Standing behind the coffee bar, the two actors took orders from customers, who lined up to get glimpses at them, while promoting their movie "The Campaign".
Galifianakis, who dressed casually in a pink shirt, and Ferrell, who was clad in a suit, appeared in characters as two political rivals. A video taken on the scene showed that it was very noisy inside the venue, while a local journalist said there were thousands of people waiting outside the cafe.
The fake political campaign tour was kicked off on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Standing on podiums at The Grove, they answered questions as if they were politicians running for congress. A day later, on July 18, they stopped by Chicago, Illinois to throw out a "dueling" first pitch against each other at Wrigley Field during the game between Chicago Cubs and Florida Marlins.
In another attempt to promote the comedy movie, Warner Bros. Pictures has just released a new trailer. It shows some new hilarious scenes as Galifianakis' Marty Huggins and Ferrell's Cam Brady compete to win people's votes.
Directed by Jay Roach, "The Campaign" will head into theaters across the U.S. on August 10. Dylan McDermott, Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd are among actors supporting the film.
