On the eighth day of Burgundy, Will Ferrell gave to me, a killer cover song with a king of R&B! 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 will open wide on 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 8 – “Ron Like The Wind”
What could be better than Christopher Cross’ classic song “Ride Like the Wind,” a yacht rock anthem featuring background vocals from Michael McDonald? How about a new version with “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke and Ron Burgundy handling Michael McDonald’s lines? Yeah, this is pretty epic. And that’s even without the jazz flute solo. Yeah, that’s right, we said “jazz flute solo,” or in Ron’s words, “Three feet of polished nickel, valves and my sweet breath.” Yeah, there’s going to be babies made to this for sure.
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? He’s delivered the news in North Dakota. His appearance on The Dan Patrick Show made us all say, “Great Odin’s Raven!,” which will now also always remind us of Burgundy’s new scotchy scotchy scotch. Plus, 60% of the time, Ron’s techniques as a car pitchman 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. And we can’t forget about Brick Tamland, who’s audition 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 5 Days Of Burgundy to go, so until tomorrow: You stay classy, Planet Earth.
