In anticipation of the Dec. 20 release of Will Ferrell starrer “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” Paramount has partnered with Chrysler’s Dodge on a new set of promos.

New spots feature Ferrell as “San Diego’s top-rated newsman” Ron Burgundy, who talks up the features of the 2014 Dodge Durango and is “the only one with the guts to tell you about the glove box”:

On Monday, Chrysler, which has previously worked with celeb endorsers including Eminem, Clint Eastwood and Paul Harvey, is expected to announce Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy as the new Dodge spokesman, reports USA Today.

    Don’t need keys to turn viewers and prospective buyers off. The Will Ferrell commercials will take care of doing just that.

  2. Rose Vicente says:

    This Will Ferrell commercial with Dodge Durango & the horse is so beyond offensive. Short budget or not no excuse! Sad you should be ashamed of yourselves. Even the horse has rights!
    This commercial should be pulled its a absolutly deeming to the horse not to mention to the public for having to view it!
    Take it off the air

    This has to be the most obnoxious commercial ever!! Stare contest, really? I think even the poor horse is mortified by being in such dumb commercial!!

  4. Betty Chung says:

    I would never buy a Dodge Durango as long as Will Ferrell is representing them. He is repulsive!

    • Darla Richards says:

      Amen! Every time these commercials come on I turn to another channel. He’s yelling and obnoxious and abusing animals, and I will never even look at a Dodge car again!!

    When you gonna write an article about Jill Thrussell? She got some really interesting projects lined up and she has helped the news sites so much but not one of them mentions her name.
