On the fourth day of Christmas, Will Ferrell gave to me, some scotch, here it goes down into my belly! The countdown to the much anticipated debut of Anchorman: The Legend Continues is getting closer, and it seems that all of pop-culture is overflowing with the antics of San Diego’s finest news team.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues won’t be released in theaters until December 18th (16th in some places), so until then, forget The 12 Days Of Christmas – We’re staying classy for The 12 Days of Burgundy!
Day 4 – “I love scotch. Scotchy scotchy scotch.”
The Burgundy media blitz continues with the release of the anchor’s own commemorative scotch, Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve. You’re probably thinking this is too good to be true, like getting two tickets to Ron’s Gun Show. But, it’s real! According to Grub Street, the company that’s making the scotch, Riviera Imports, is retailing the bottles for $25, and the liquor itself is a malt-and-grain blend of whiskies from Speyside, Highlands, and Islay produced by Old St. Andrews Distillery. But the most important thing is that smells of rich mahogany, so you can enjoy it with your many leather-bound books.
Perhaps it’s just the spirit of the season, or maybe we’re also falling prey to Burgundy’s mysterious mind-control, but somehow Ron Burgundy has invaded The Laugh Button too. Who can blame us? I mean, 60% of the time, Ron’s techniques as a car salesman work, every time! Not to mention how his interview with Eminem at the EMAs put us all into a glass case of emotion! His newscast on the Yahoo! Search Report of 2013 was so wise, like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair. We can say the same about his appearance on The Dan Patrick Show. And even though it wasn’t actually Burgundy himself behind it, we can’t forget about Brick Tamland, who’s recent audition for the job got us all to love lamp.
But if you still find yourself wondering why it seems the whole world is seeing burgundy, you can check out Ron’s legendary new book, Let Me Off At The Top!. But before you finally get away from the rock you live under to come and see how good Ron looks, just remember his number 1 tip for survival in the real world: Milk is a bad choice.
There’s still 8 Days Of Burgundy to go, so until tomorrow: You stay classy, Planet Earth.
