Ron Burgundy Goes Metal on ‘Dan Patrick Show’

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Ron Burgundy (aka Will Ferrell) is making the rounds as his new film, ‘Anchorman 2,’ ramps up to its December release. One of the stops for the newscaster came Thursday morning (Dec. 5) as the veteran anchor dropped by ‘The Dan Patrick Show.’ During his appearance, Burgundy offered a new take on the ‘Stat of the Day’ theme, originally recorded by Hatebreed‘s Jamey Jasta, but he also showed he could also hold his own with the metal vet.

The segment began with Burgundy baiting Patrick about how many Emmys the show had won before readying the daily ‘Stat of the Day’ feature. After hearing the jingle played by Patrick, the newsman offered, “I think you’re losing viewers and listeners based on that, on that song … I think you’d get better reaction on something like this,” before be-bopping and scatting through a loungy version of the track.

While Patrick protested that the original version recorded by the Hatebreed vocalist was quite popular, Burgundy stated that he could pull off something equally as impressive. He then proceeded to blast the microphone with his metal rendition, which was so powerful he suggested that the mic might need a new spit guard.
