You cannot stop the Anchorman 2 publicity  tour. You can only hope to contain it.

On Saturday, on his way to call the Canadian Olympic curling trials in Winnipeg—and yes, I'm serious about that, too—Will Ferrell rolled into Bismarck, North Dakota, where he visited local CBS affiliate KXBM and read the news. And I don't just mean he made an appearance and then left. I mean he was there for the entire half-hour broadcast—dressed as Ron Burgundy of course—and served as the actual co-anchor for the lovely but overmatched Amber Schatz.

Sadly, Ron didn't do any stories about water skiing squirrels or cat fashion shows. However, he did talk about a trash fire at the local Sam's Club and some local guy who didn't shave for the entire month of November, thus winning a bet.

Oh, and he also hit on his co-anchor and made a joke about the weather guy losing a bunch of weight. So you was amusing.

Anchorman 2 hits theaters December 18. (Yes, that's right. December 18.)
