The first two clips from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues have been released along with a couple spots of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) shilling for Canada’s The Sports Network (TSN) and having a “Who’s on First” conversation about Doctor Who. The clips are about as silly as you’d expect. One clip has Ron being unable to understand an Australian accent and the other has him commenting on the scent of a rival anchor’s poop.
Hit the jump to check out the clips and TV spots. The film also stars Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Meagan Good, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th.
