The Anchorman Prank

A key moment in Will Ferrell’s comedic masterpiece Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy comes when it is revealed that newsman Burgundy will say anything that he reads on the teleprompter. This makes for a pretty funny scene, but surely no real news anchor would blindly read something off the teleprompter, right? Right? Well, a few of the staffers at Green Bay, Wisconsin’s NBC26 decided to put a line from Anchorman in the telepromter script and see whether the local news anchor would say it. Watch the results of this experiment here, and be glad that they didn’t make the news guy say “Fuck you, San Diego.”
