Basketball fans watching the Bulls-Hornets game in New Orleans on Wednesday night got something of a surprise—and I’m not talking about the Bulls’ bruising 90-67 win. No, apparently Will Ferrell, who is in New Orleans shooting a movie, was on hand to make a series of announcement before the game, mocking a handful of the players, accusing one of still living with his mother, insisting another speaks not a bit of English, and that one Italian player refuses to eat Italian food. Check it out after the jump.
Ferrell is currently in New Orleans shooting the film Dog Fight with Dylan McDermott and Zach Galifianakis (who both attended the game with Ferrell). And before the 80s Night-themed game at the New Orleans Arena began, Ferrell was asked to perform the introductions for both teams—which he did in typical Will Ferrell style. The comedic actor introduced 6-foot-9, 266-pound Bulls forward Carlos Boozer as a man who “still lives with his mother,” while he insisted that New Orleans guard Marco Belinelli “hates Italian food.”
Afterwards, Boozer said there were no hard feelings, “we’re all Will Ferrell fans – one of the funniest dudes of our generation, man.”
