America’s preeminent Will Ferrell method actor Ron Burgundy who will do literally anything to promote his upcoming documentary Anchorman 2 appeared on Conan last night (potential plot hole: how is the real Ron Burgundy turning up for all these press engagements in the year 2013?) where conversation quickly turned to the walking punchline that is embattled Toronto mayor and smoker of crack cocaine, Rob Ford.
Burgundy, who called the mayor a “dear friend” and “an outstanding individual”, came to the aid of his rage-prone chum by singing a re-election campaign song for him, a gruff reworking of “Working For The Weekend” by “one of his favorite bands from Calgary,” Loverboy.
FYI, you’re gonna want to stick around for the spontaneous jazz flute solo.
