All in good Funny or Die fun, of course
Ron Burgundy is a legend in his own right, but according to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo, he’s also kind of a jerk.
“On camera he’s one of the best,” Cuomo says in the Funny or Die video (above). “But off camera, he’s a bit of an asshole.”
“A major prick,” Blitzer adds.
All three actual newsman are, of course, in awe of his signature mustache, among other characteristics of the fake anchor who Will Ferrell first brought to life in 2004’s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”
“The truth is when I first graduated from college and I started reporting, I was just doing my best Ron Burgundy impression,” Cooper says. “I mean everyone was back then. The mustache — the whole persona.”
Paramount is releasing “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” in theaters on Dec. 18.
