One of my favorite things about a Will Ferrell movie is the accompanying late-night promotional tour. A few days after serenading David Letterman with “Send in the Clowns,” Ferrell reunited with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon last night, where they discussed an old Canadian soap opera they used to work on together called Jacob’s Patience. According to the host, it was back in the day when Ferrell was still doing a lot of freelance arm modeling (Clearly, long before the days of Ron Burgundy’s “Two tickets to the gun show!” boast). See the clip after the jump.
That was more delightful than two faux handfuls of pickles. I didn’t even mind that Canada’s cell-phone technology was apparently light years ahead of our own, though that is cause for concern. Did the segment make you nostalgic for Fallon’s and Ferrell’s greatest collaborations on SNL?
