Anchorman 2 Poster Preview

Acting as yet another placeholder in lieu of any actual footage from the film (just like the first teaser), the second teaser for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is now here, acting as a stopgap to keep us all interested until official footage is actually released.   And usually, such crass advertising would be kind of annoying or obvious; here, though, it’s just quite funny.

Taking place in the same flood-lit studio as the first teaser, the newest ad features the main cast members from the original film (Will Ferrell as Ron Burgandy, Paul Rudd as Brian Fantana, Steve Carell as Brick Tamland, and David Koechner as Champ Kind), minus Christina Applegate as Veronica Corningstone.  Together, they offer up their new catchphrases for the film, which vary from exhortations of liquor breath, the benefits of snake venom as a men’s cologne, the rules of hugging children, and, of course, pleas to remain classy.  It’s a goofy and fun bit of fluff:

So there you have it—nothing new to report in terms of plot or actual footage, but hey, it’s still fun to see Ferrell, Rudd, Carell, and Koechner together again with their easy comic interplay, and bizarre inability to age like mortal men.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is set for a December 20 release date.
