Will Ferrell likes to do wacky stuff, and often, that wacky stuff involves a sports element. Last night, it happened to be at the Staples Center and involve Shaq. But where have we seen all this before?
Will Ferrell: Still Making Weird Old Milwaukee Super Bowl Commercials That Air Only In A Couple Tiny Markets
Last year, one of the best-received Super Bowl commercials was one hardly anybody saw during the game – Will Ferrell (barely) pimping Old Milwaukee in one of the smallest TV markets in the country. And it went so well that the actor and the band teamed up again this year… and things got weirder.
Will Ferrell Interviewed During Spanish-Speaking Soccer Telecast, Apparently Does Not Speak Much Spanish
Will Ferrell’s been part of a few good sports stunts in the last month. There was the Super Bowl ad that only aired in one market in Nebraska. There were those pregame intros for the Bulls. And now, via Spanish-language telecast of a Colombia-Mexico soccer match on Univision, we have him getting interviewed in Spanish… and not even pretending to know what’s going on. (Auto-playing) video after the jump.
Above, you’ll see Will Ferrell announcing the starting lineups for the Bulls during their Wednesday night game with the Hornets. It was great, mostly because it looked like Carlos Boozer didn’t like hearing the guy from Anchorman say he still lives with his mom, and Luol Deng wasn’t entertained by Jackie Moon telling the crowd that he collects rare birds.
Ferrell, most of the internet agrees, did a great job. So wouldn’t you like to see him do the same thing for the NBA’s biggest stars? There’s a growing movement to have Ferrell announce the player introductions at the All-Star game, and you can show your support for this movement by liking this Facebook page. I will be doing just that, because visualizing 10 stone-faced All-Stars taking the court as Will Ferrell says ridiculous made-up things about them is something I would like to see. Join the movement, America.
The much hyped Carrier Classic (so named, of course, because it’s on an aircraft carrier) between UNC and Michigan State is tonight. Among those in attendance will be President Barack Obama. For some players, this might be nerve-racking. For others…not so much.
In unveiling new uniforms and logos yesterday, the Class A Asheville Tourists the team moved towards a new set that invoked the club’s history. Did they allude to some pop culture history as well?
Honestly, we hope that title alone was enough to get you to watch the video. But if you still need convincing, how about this: not only does Pacquiao sing, he doesn’t do a bad job.
