And Now, Here Is Ron Burgundy Singing Disgraced Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's Campaign Song

For those of you who missed Ron Burgundy's takeover of Conan last night, here is incentive to stop whatever you're doing right now and immediately go find the full episode: At one point, Ron Burgundy voices his support for Toronto's disgraced mayor Rob Ford—the man who denied offering oral sex to an employee by saying, on live TV, "I would never do that. I'm happily married. I've got more than enough to eat at home,"—and then proceeds to sing a campaign song for him.

The campaign song? Oh, just "Workin' For the Weekend," by Loverboy. He even plays the flute, which is a lovely addition.

For the record: The performance was all apart of Will Ferrell's creative promotion of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. During his entire appearance in the episode, Ferrell does not break character once, and conducts the entire interview as Ron Burgundy "promoting his new book." It's pretty great—he even gives some prison riot survival tips! Uproxx has a ton of clips here.

As for Ron Burgundy's ode to Rob Ford, you can check that clip out above.
