Anchorman II Circles The Bowl, It Floats!

December 21, 2013 at 6:02 am 2 comments

This post is in response to the impending release of Anchorman II .

There’s old Hollywood saying that describes the most common method to success in the entertainment industry, and fittingly enough it even predates the movie “Deep Throat”, and that saying is “It’s not who you know, it’s who you blow”.

In some ways, Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy could easily be compared to the blathering daytime t.v. oddity that is “Bethany”, except that he has a more noticeable mustache (and, one would assume, a penis), both are happily riding on the wave of a career rise that’s beyond any explanation, smiling all the way to the bank. This illustrates that as much as we’re aware that cream rises, we also know that often dead bodies and shit will float to the top.

So with the rising by the hour onslaught of phony praise, hype and cross promotions for “Anchorman II” that rivals Microsoft’s unending media time purchase and product placement of both the bloated virus magnet that is Windows 8 in so many t.v. shows and “Bing”, the basically still unknown web searcher. I’m thinking that under the guidance of an early  agent or manager Will Ferrell must have made a bulk quantity purchase of knee pads requiring several visits to Costco, and it’s also likely he will be in line for future kneecap transplants.

I’ve mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I can’t figure out how someone with so little talent has been able to go so far with an act that for the most part consists of trying and failing to emulate the routines of Steve Martin and Chevy Chase. I still have no answer for you, he’s just never been funny to me. Not even close…..  

Perhaps the rumors are true and Mr. Ferrell does indeed have a tattoo on his forehead that says “Don’t grab my ears, I know what I’m doing”, it certainly would explain a lot.

*******Breaking news update!!!!*******   On December 24th, shortly after the Los Angeles near to flatline release of “Anchorman II“, Paramount Studios is reported to be considering changing the name of the film to “Devastation of the Smug” in the hopes they might catch some of those ticket buyers who aren’t paying attention when they choose a V.O.D. to watch. In a related story, Dodge Durango sales are said to be increasing in spite of the flood of Ron Burgundy ads  .

Feel free to ignore any ads that are shown below, I don’t get to choose them and (sadly) I don’t make a penny off any of them, so in the holy name of capitalism I rebuke and don’t endorse or support any of them, unless of course they’re made of funny stuff…..

    Corpses float too. At least for a little while.

    I really hope that corpses float, otherwise I’ve been wasting a lot of time sitting here by the river and waiting, waiting, waiting…..
