In 2004 a legend was born, and that legend was a misogynistic, scotch-loving mustached anchorman of channel 4 KVWN, located in San Diego, which loosely translates into “a whale’s vagina.” In celebration of the return of the renowned character, I re-watched the original and fell in love with the character all over again. And I know I’m not alone when I say that 10 years was far too long to wait for a new installation of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell‘s story of a new steam from the 1970s. Below is a compilment of gifs that make up some of the most awesome moments of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Our journey begins with the hero of our story’s first words:
We then meet the rest of the Channel 4 news team:
There’s the man in the field Brian Fantana, a mathematical-moron who knows his way around a musk store department:
Sports nut Champ Kind, known for his catchphrase:
And the most lovable weather man that there ever was, Brick Tamland:
Life is good for the KVWN news team, they rank as the number 1 news team 12 years in a row! And in no way is attending the same party for 12 years sad!
Soon, the news team’s very foundation is shaken because of an “old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War Era.”
All of the men try feeble attempts at hitting on the new team member, Veronica Corningstone. Ron, being the only successful one:
And then of course, Ron woo’s his new found lady friend with some classic jazz flute:
They eventually make their way to pleasure town:
And they successfully date for a while, even though Ron announces to all of his friends who his new lady lover is:
But eventually, life falls for the very high Burgundy, after one simple act of littering. His beloved dog Baxter:
BUT THEN, A WILD JACK BLACK APPEARS:
And Ron finds himself in:
Eventually, the boys get in the most epic battle San Diego has ever seen because of some smack talk about the new female anchor:
Soon after, Corningstone finds out that that Ron will read anything that is put onto the prompter:
Thus using the PG-13’s one “Fuck.”
Ron’s life soon goes to shit:
He lives like this for awhile, until his boss Ed Harken calls him to cover the news story of the summer, because Veronica had “suddenly disappeared. Fucking Public News.
Ron cleans himself up, and calls for his news team to assemble:
Turns out Corningstone was shoved into a BEAR PIT! The news team helps her out:
THE DAY WAS SAVED!
And that, is the story of Ron Burgundy, summarized in gif formation. Bonus Brick gif about bears:
