‘Anchorman 2’ Ron Burgundy is stumped by Doctor Who (Video)


We all know that Ron Burgundy is not exactly the sharpest took in the shed, but this one kind of takes the cake. While attempting to report the news British style, completed with his Union flag coffee mug, Burgundy just can’t seem to wrap his head around the concept of Doctor Who.

“Peter Capaldi? Who is his Doctor?” Burgundy asks. “Peter Capaldi is Doctor Who.”

Wait…I think he has it. Nope. He lost it again.

“Well, that’s not even a sentence.” Burgundy says. “Who is his Doctor?”

He comes so close, yet so far away from actually getting it right.

“Who is Peter Capaldi’s Doctor?” he asks “What do you mean, yes?” he asks even more perplexed.

Like most people who demand to know the Doctor’s name, he gets the same response; who?

“You know what, buddy? Guess what…you’re fired. Simple as that.” He says. “It’s the last time I’m made to look like a fool.”

Unfortunately, Ron…we highly doubt that. That’s sort of your thing.

Take a look at the hilarious clip for yourself and let us know what you think.

In Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Ron Burgundy and his friends leave the 70’s behind and are ready to take the Big Apple by storm as they make their big jump into GNN, the Global News Network.

Doctor Who just celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a special entitled ’The Day of the Doctor’ which was simulcast around the world so that everyone could enjoy the majesty all at the same time.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is scheduled to hit theaters on December 20, 2013.

Doctor Who will say goodbye to the 12th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, during the Christmas Special on Christmas Day 2013.
