Is there such a thing as too much Ron Burgundy? The answer is apparently: "no." The relentless promo machine for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" shows no sign of stopping, with Will Ferrell literally travelling the globe with his suit and mustache never too far behind. And don't be fooled into thinking Thanksgiving stopped Ferrell from collecting air miles and bagging more hotel room soaps.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Is there such a thing as too much Ron Burgundy? The answer is apparently: "no." The relentless promo machine for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" shows no sign of stopping, with Will Ferrell literally travelling the globe with his suit and mustache never too far behind. And don't be fooled into thinking Thanksgiving stopped Ferrell from collecting air miles and bagging more hotel room soaps.

First up, in what is probably the most inspired promo for the movie so far, Ron Burgundy co-anchored an entire newscast for KXNews in Bismarck, North Dakota. It's a full half-hour of Ron doing a newscast, and while it's not wall-to-wall laughs, it's pretty amazing to watch Ferrell uses the spaces and chances to interact with the newsroom to get some decent laughs, and charming moments. Nicely done.

Next up, Ron went up to Canada to appear on the sports network TSN to help launch the curling event, Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings. And it seems he had a grand time. "I tell you, Winnipeg is the Paris of Canada," Ron quipped (via THR), adding that he was treated like royalty: "The limo ride from the airport was first class all the way. They had roast pig for me. An entire roasted pig there in the limo."

Lastly, Ron and the rest of the Channel 4 gang hit Sydney, Australia to screen the movie and busted out into a rendition of an old favorite, "Afternoon Delight." Phew.

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" now arrives on December 18th, and of course, there's yet another video promo to remind you about that. Watch it all below.
