Ron Burgundy from ‘Anchorman’ disses UK Halloween celebrations – watch

Will Ferrell's '70s news anchor reckons America does it better...

Ron Burgundy from Anchorman has shared his thoughts on the way the UK celebrates Halloween.

“Tonight the United Kingdom also celebrates Halloween,” Burgundy begins his latest news bulletin, “although in America we celebrate properly – with drunken adults dressed like serial killers hiding in front gardens giving candy to strangers’ children”. Watch Burgundy’s full report below.

Burgundy’s “highly anticipated autobiography”, Let Me Off At The Top!: My Classy Life And Other Musings, is set to be published on November 19. He will then appear in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which opens in cinemas on December 20. The sequel follows Will Ferrell‘s ’70s news anchor as he launches a comeback on a 24-hour network in ’80s New York.

Alongside Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate have all reprised their roles from the first Anchorman film, while James Marsden appears as a rival news anchor and Kristen Wiig has also joined the cast as the wife of Carell’s character, Brick.

Meanwhile, Kanye West has filmed a cameo appearance and his improvisational skills drew praise from director Adam McKay. “He was great and he was funny. He came up with a couple good lines on his own,” the director recalled recently. Drake and Green Day make guest appearances in the sequel too – as do Harrison Ford, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, Tina Fey and Sacha Baron Cohen. Watch two new trailers for Anchorman 2 here.
