Will Ferrell

Anchors Real Newscast

As Ron Burgundy (Don't Act Like You're Not Impressed)

12/1/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Anchorman 2" didn't need ridiculous promotional idea #4,762 -- but thank God they did it otherwise we wouldn't have seen Will Ferrell/Ron Burgundy attempt to anchor a real life newscast in North Dakota.

Ron co-anchored the evening news on KXMB in Bismarck, ND on Saturday with Amber Schatz ... and it is freakin' hysterical.

Not sure what's funnier -- Ferrell attempting to pull off annoying anchor banter with an actual anchor ... or Amber, the sports guy, and the weather guy attempting to hold back their laughter.

Make sure you watch Ron and the Emmy award winning KX news team sign off ... it's world class awkwardness -- and definitely could've used an ovary punch.

Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 2627: Ron Burgundy in a Real News Cast - Will Ferrell's Body Language

Besides coming off as a very poorly produced out-in-the-boonies newscast, what is "freakin' hysterical" about this? Awkward, inexperienced anchors can be found in many tiny markets and college TV studios. Ron Burgundy is a hilarious caricature in send-ups of egotistical big market news anchors. That character inserted in a REAL newscast makes for a very lame and unprofessional newscast.
