According to Will Ferrell, the Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues cast and crew had the pleasure of hearing Yeezus a month before the rest of the world did. Over, and over again. During a visit to The Jonathan Ross Show, Ferrell touched on Kanye's time on set, when he filmed a cameo during what looks like a massive battle scene similar to the first film's news channel battle royal. ""It was very surreal to have Kanye - who's such a big fan of comedy - in our movie hanging out for two days," Ferrell told ITV's The Jonathan Ross Show.
"He was playing the new tracks a lot, over and over," Ferrell said. "Even when you're trying to film, he's playing the tracks." He goes on to say Kanye hung out a little while longer even after his scenes were wrapped. Just imagine the Channel 4 news team rocking out to "Blood on the Leaves" in between takes.
