That time Will Ferrell interrupted a World Cup party in Brazil.
Will Ferrell is in the news this morning because last night he filmed a scene for his new movie at a professional sporting event.

Following the fake throw (we really do hope the New Orleans Pelicans cheerleader had extra padding on her head), Ferrell was fake escorted out of the game.

Daddy’s Home also stars Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini and comedian Hannibal Buress (who is currently killing it on Broad City).

The comedy is expected to shoot in New Orleans through the beginning of February.
