Sexist. Racist. Slightly homophobic. Terrified of change. It can only mean that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has a new trailer… and it’s going to make for one hell of a story.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his trusted news crew are back in action, burying the not-dead Brick (Steve Carell) and sneezing in the face of his beloved Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate).
By Odin’s raven, the Anchorman crew wasn’t finished. A long international trailer also arrived, with completely new footage and a better idea of the plot driving director Adam McKay’s sequel. Peep this new clip below:
Why stop there, though? On your way home from seeing Anchorman 2 this December, swing by the neighborhood grocer and pick up a new flavor of Ben & Jerry’s Scotchy Scotch Scotch, the first ice cream created in honor of a Ferrell character.
“Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions,” said Burgundy in a press release. “Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet.”
The flavor was officially unveiled at New York City’s Pier 36.
“As a company who believes our fans deserve nothing but the best, we have great respect for Ron Burgundy, who takes the same belief to heart,” said Lisa Sholk, Ben & Jerry’s marketing maven, who lead the team on the Scotchy Scotch Scotch flavor project.
“We especially enjoyed the sampling process over the last several months to find the perfect Scotchy scotch flavor,” added LeeAnne Stables, president of consumer products at Paramount Pictures.
Scotchy Scotch Scotch is available now at participating scoop shops across the country. Pints of the flavor will arrive on store shelves over the next few weeks.
“To help locate the flavor as it rolls out, we’re asking fans of Ben & Jerry’s and Anchorman to log on to www.benjerry.com and share when and where they were able to have a taste,” Sholk said. “We want fans to be able to experience it all firsthand, because as Ron says, this flavor is ‘kind of a big deal.’”
