Video: Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy Anchors an Actual Newscast in North Dakota


Dressing as his 'Anchorman' character, Ferrell dropped by KXMB-TV in Bismarck to help deliver local reports on Saturday night.

Will Ferrell got into character Ron Burgundy for an actual newscast on Saturday night, November 30. He dressed as his "Anchorman" character, sporting fake mustache, a striped tie and a red suit, to serve as guest anchor on KXMB-TV in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The fictional anchor read the local happenings off the teleprompter and occasionally clowned around. He popped into co-anchor Amber Schatz's screen while she's reading a story and tapped sportscaster Jon Schaeffer on the shoulder as he read a story on hockey.

At one point after a commercial break, he asked Schatz if she's married and when she said she's not, he told her, "Well I am, so don't get any ideas." At the end of the 30-minute newscast, the other anchors thanked Burgundy for joining them that night and presented him with a shirt displaying his catch phrase, "Stay Classy."

Speaking to The Associated Press after the rare experience, Schatz said, "The second he said, 'Good evening, I'm Ron Burgundy,' I lost it. It was really hard not to laugh." She and her other co-anchors could barely keep a straight face during the newscast.

The stint was part of promotional effort for Ferrell's upcoming movie, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues", in which he reprises his role as the legendary anchor Burgundy. The sequel to 2004's "Anchorman" will arrive in U.S. theaters on December 18, two days earlier than it was initially scheduled.
