Wolf Blitzer, Chris Cuomo, and Anderson Cooper want you to know that Ron Burgundy is not only one of the most promoted fake news anchors of our time, but he’s also “the most influential actor in broadcast history,” “a news legend,” and “a bit of an asshole.” Funny or Die’s latest Anchorman 2 promo video features some of the top news anchors of cable news reminiscing on their interactinos with the San Diego news reporter.
“The first job I had was as an intern for Ron Burgundy,” recalls CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “They were the worst years of my life…he made me learn how to dry clean.” The anchors recall studio interference and award theft, despite Burgundy’s amazing mustache and news coverage. “I heard he suggested the idea of building a wall in Berlin, just so he could deliver the news when it was knocked down,” the News Day anchor continues.
Check out the man, the legend, and the mustache in this hilarious video. And, of course, be sure to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in theaters on Dec. 18. Because you’ve probably forgotten since the last Anchorman 2 promotional stunt.
