Cool Videos: Idaho sportscaster dresses as Ron Burgundy for Halloween and delivered his entire broadcast in character

11.01.2013

This escalated quickly! While I dressed up as Ron Burgundy for my Halloween costume, I did not go to quite the same lengths as Paul Gerke, sportscaster for a Boise, Idaho FOX station. Gerke dressed in Will Ferrell's character's trademark suit and mustache and delivered the news completely in character. With ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES hitting theaters in just a couple of months, there is a renewed interest in the character.

Now, this isn't some short little costumed appearance by the newscaster. Gerke holds character for almost the entire news broadcast, including an onsite report from a high school football game as Ron Burgundy. He even plugs Dodge as Will Ferrell has been doing in commercials. In the end, this is just a brilliant Halloween costume and I commend Gerke for taking it as far as he did.

No she didn't - she just stated that the boss came in the studio. I bet the boss came in to watch too as the guy was being pretty entertaining. More entertaining that the crap movie anyway. You read the situation wrong.

That's just fantastic. He is too good at that. He doesn't seem to be trying too hard either, which helps.

brilliant

It was mildly amusing at first, but it was kind of awkward with home trying g to shoehorn jokes from the film into his report. But then at the end, when he just starts riffing, man, that was just brilliant. He should have just improvised the whole thing, cause he was actually pretty funny when he did that.

The Weather Report killed it!

Holy crap that entire thing was genius. Will Ferrell and this man need to do a video together as Ron Burgundy junior and senior.

That is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. Moreso because it's an actual news broadcast and the others aren't in on the joke. "Thirty percent of those days happening. Watch out for the apocalypse."
