Ron Burgundy started the 24 Hour Cable News Channel format back in the 80’s with the Channel 4 News Team, and my Vine Video Review of Anchorman 2 was used on HLN. That’s Right…a 24 Hour Cable News Channel Played “My Vine”. This is as meta as you can get people! In other words… Ron Burgundy Made “Me” News!! Yeah, now all I need is Salon Quality Hair…BOOM!!
My Vine was the 1st one played in the broadcast and of course, I was the ONLY one that had to be Bleeped:) Add in that Anchorman 2 introduced Sirens and a Mythological Minotaur in Ron’s rumble showdown in Central Park here in New York City …Can you say destiny?
I Honored Anchorman in Episode 28 of the @ChasingDominico Podcast
Perhaps Ron Burgundy listened to my @ChasingDominico Podcast. Will Ferrell & Mythology are huge themes in the podcast. If you listen to it, then you know why I chose this horribly scary shark picture. I Hate Sharks!! Ron Burgundy’s pet shark, Dobe, almost gave me a heart attack. It’s a good thing Baxter is always there to save the day:)
Within seconds of the movie starting, Ron Burgundy was already making me crack up with his infamous one-liners. I can’t imagine what the extras are gonna be on the DVD. One of my favorite lines from the first Anchorman, “The Skeleton Ran Out of Shampoo in the Shower” was on the DVD extras. All the “warm up” Vocal Exercises Ron Burgundy does before each news broadcast makes me almost pee my pants…not kidding!! I love a man who has that affect on me. “When you’ve got an ass like the North Star, wise men are gonna follow it”; what woman doesn’t wanna hear that from her man!! I spend a large amount of my time on Twitter trading Will Ferrell quotes back & forth with other Will Ferrell fans. Will Ferrell 4 President!!!
The brilliance of making Ron Burgundy “the creator” of the modern day news format was pure genius. “Well now we know guys, you can’t smoke crack on live television” …WHAT!!! Scotch and Crack, what a combo. And yes people, there is an official “Ron Burgundy Scotch” being sold. I think I know what I want in my Christmas Stocking this year. I’ve already got the Ron Burgundy talking doll, on it’s way from Amazon. Even blinding Ron Burgundy circa “Ice Castles” style, didn’t stop the legend. So what if he took refuge in a secluded Light House, unable to distinguish if he’s eating actual food or house hold items. But like a true superhero…Ron regained his sight.
There are hundreds of Anchorman 2 reviews out now. This post is not intended to be another one. I am merely a die hard Will Ferrell fan, communicating with other fans and celebrating Ron Burgundy’s return to the big screen. I can’t think of a better gift this season. Nor can I wait till the movie goes DVD so I can honor it on of my @ChasingDominico Podcast. So let the coronation begin and Crown Will Ferrell The King of awesome and Ron Burgundy anointed Sovereign of News Broadcasting:)
I think I’ll sign off now by thanking you for Stopping By, reminding every one to Stay Classy… But Mostly; “Don’t Just Have a Good Night…Have an American Night!” I give Anchorman 2 Six Thumbs Up!!!
I went to the Matinee on opening day because I couldn’t wait until nighttime. I was ready for an Afternoon Delight:)
My Vine was the only one they had to Bleep
Will Ferrell truly went all out to promote the movie. Will Ferrell put Ron Burgundy into every imaginable real-world scenario possible from reading the news, selling cars, making ice cream flavors, to the most obvious but brilliant move: Ron Burgundy Scotch
Here is the original broadcast if you want the full feel. They embed an ad upfront so that is why I put it here at the end
