Ron Burgundy Performs ‘Ride Like the Wind’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Ron Burgundy is such a double threat!
The Anchorman 2 star (portrayed by Will Ferrell, of course) can read the news and sing, and he proved that on Thursday night when he hit the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage with Christopher Cross to perform “Ride Like the Wind,” the song he duets on with Robin Thicke for the film’s soundtrack.
Much like the version Ron did with the “Blurred Lines” singer, the anchorman — decked out in “yacht rock” garb — talks and comments on all the lyrics as Cross sings them.
“That’s right, folks. When Ron Burgundy rides, he rides like the wind. Not like a Subaru or a golf cart … like a god-darn wind,” he says into the mic. “Powerful and sleek. And invisible!”
Anchorman 2, also starring Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, and Steve Carell, is out in theaters now!
