*Robin Thicke and Will Ferrell’s “Anchorman 2” character Ron Burgundy have recorded a remake of Christopher Cross‘ 1980 hit “Ride Like The Wind” for the movie’s soundtrack – and now the pair want to enhance the experience with a music video.
An insider told the New York Post’s Page Six: ”Everyone’s on board for a proper music video, but Will’s concerned about his schedule.”
The insider says he fears Ron Burgundy will be overexposed but would like Robin to join him on one of his upcoming talk show appearances to promote the film. It was hoped Thicke would appear with Farrell on “Conan” last week but it would have cost up to $100,000 to get Robin out of previous engagements and to Los Angeles in time.
The next opportunity would be during Will’s Dec. 19th appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and negotiations are still ongoing with Robin’s record label Interscope.
Will has already appeared as the 1970’s San Diego anchorman in a blitz of promotional spots for the movie, including a spoof with Daft Punk for the European Music Awards in Amsterdam.
“Anchorman 2” hits theaters on Dec. 20.
