Paul Rudd pulls Anchorman 2 prank on Conan: watch now

Paul Rudd recently dropped in to the Conan O’Brien show to talk up progress on upcoming sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues , before pranking both host and audience with a supposed “clip” from the movie.

Having whisked the studio audience into a frenzy of excitement, Rudd revealed that he had managed to bring an exclusive clip of early Anchorman 2 footage along to the show with him.

However, the clip that actually rolled was something a little different. We won’t spoil the surprise for you, just take a look for yourself below…

Ah, good old Mac And Me , the discerning child’s E.T. If there’s a point where that clip ever gets old, we’ve yet to reach it…

Meanwhile, Anchorman: The Legend Continues will open in the UK on 20 December 2013.
