Subscribe to Will Ferrell alerts

The Anchorman sequel is almost here and if that's not exciting enough for you then the news that top Boston university, Emerson College, will temporarily rename its school of communication 'The Ron Burgundy School of Communication' will send you into full-blown, movie-quoting overdrive.

Smell That? It's 'Sex Panther' And It's Coming Our Way!

Indeed, It's exactly a month until Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind reunite for more debauched and bungling action. To celebrate the occasion, the prestigious Boston college will rename the school for one day only on the 4th December to honor the fictitious television anchorman, reports the AP.

Not only that, but Will Ferrell will appear as his well-loved and hilarious Anchorman character Burgundy to help make the day even more special and advise students on how best to "stay classy." He will introduce an exclusive screening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in a visit that will also include a news conference, and the renaming ceremony.

"I had to pinch myself really hard when I learned that Emerson College was naming its School of Communication for me. It's kind of a big deal," said Burgundy, via Boston Magazine.

What was it that swayed filmmakers to create an Anchorman sequel?

Burgundy is expected to advise the budding journalists on the importance of good hair, as hammered home in the movies. He'll let the students know how hard it is to make it to the top "especially if you don't have good hair."

In a tongue-in-cheek statement, Emerson College's President Lee Pelton said that Burgundy "understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, firsthand."

Watch the hilarious (but probably NSFW) "jean-creaming" teaser.

Commencing at 11 a.m. on the 4th December, Ferrell will be in full character ready for the all of the day's scheduled events. Anchorman fans who are not enrolled at Emerson can watch the surely funny events unfold over on the college's TV channel.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will be released in cinemas on the 20th December.
