Ron Burgundy to Appear on ‘Conan’
If you love Ron Burgundy more than you love lamp, then be sure to tune into “Conan” on Nov. 20, when the famed San Diego anchorman is set to sit down with Conan O’Brien as a guest.
Burgundy will chat with the latenight host about his new book, “Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings,” which will be released on Nov. 18 via Crown Publishing. Burgundy will also discuss his new film “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” set to debut Dec. 20.
News follows Burgundy’s first appearance on “Conan” in March 2012, where Burgundy surprised the studio audience with a lively jazz flute performance and announced that an “Anchorman” sequel had been given the greenlight.
The November “Conan” appearance will of course fold into Paramount and Will Ferrell’s clever marketing campaign for the much-anticipated followup to “Anchorman,” the comedy that amassed a cult-like following, slew of quotes and costumes, and transformed Ron Burgundy into a viral legend of a character. Other promo efforts already leveraged by the studio includes a partnership with Chrysler, where Burgundy appears in comedic TV commercials for the Dodge Durango.
