Yes, it’s Will Ferrell and Robin Thicke covering Christopher Cross' "Ride With the Wind" for the soundtrack to “Anchorman: The Legend Returns.” It’s not so much a collaboration as it is Thicke earnestly crooning this track and Burgundy doing sly commentary alongside the lyrics.

“You mean Alan Thicke?” “That sound dangerous.” Yes, it’s Will Ferrell and Robin Thicke covering Christopher Cross' "Ride With the Wind" (which of course featured Michael McDonald on background vocals) for the soundtrack toAnchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” 

It’s not so much a collaboration as it is Thicke earnestly crooning this track and Burgundy doing sly commentary alongside the lyrics. We’ll admit, like most of the shameless marketing of the movie, it’s still pretty funny despite itself. The ‘Anchorman’ sequel soundtrack hits the streets on December 18th with the movie now moving up a couple days to arrive on the same date. Check out the track and original below. “Sound engineer, do you want a beer? Are you good?”
