Must Watch: Cast of 'Anchorman' Sings 'Afternoon Delight' in Sydney
We just found out that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is hitting theaters a couple days earlier, but the film is already screening for some audiences around the world. In fact, at a special premiere in Sydney, Australia, the entire Channel 4 News Team was on hand, and Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner treated the audience to something special. While taking the stage in front of the big screen, the quartet performed a rendition of their a cappella version of Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight" from the first film. Hearing them with no editing, they're pretty damn good. Watch!
Here's the live "Afternoon Delight" from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (via Vulture):
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is written and directed by Adam McKay, the man behind the original 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and comedies like Step Brothers. With the 70's behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk. Also back are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) - All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York's first 24-hour news channel by storm. Paramount Pictures brings the sequel to theaters this winter on December 20th, 2013.

Never before has a movie given me advertising fatigue.

I seem to be the only one who doesn't like Will Ferrell

Smart. Comedies historically don't do well internationally (outside of US) this "balls to the walls" marketing campaign should really help. This is old fashioned, shoe leather marketing. Fingers crossed it works.
