This is kind of a big deal. Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy stopped by not one, not two, but six different late-night shows as a surprise guest on Thursday: “Conan,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Late Late Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The sharp-dressing, dull-minded, mustachioed anchorman from “Anchorman” wore the same turtleneck-scarf combo when he performed some stand-up comedy on each of the nighttime talk shows, which, as Burgundy told Fallon, “has been a lifelong passion” of his for “about a week now.”
From Corden to Kimmel, every host played into the joke that Ferrell was Ron Burgundy(?), talking with him in-character so he could promote the new season of “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” on iHeartRadio.
You can watch his “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” appearance in the video above and see the rest below, which were obviously made possible by the magic of pre-taping, since some of these shows are based in NYC, and others in Los Angeles.
Now, you’ve been warned, these clips include some pretty lame jokes, some shameless self-promotion. But what else would you expect from the classiest guy in San Diego?
