Zach Galifianakis: comedian, actor, musician, weather man? Believe it or not, yes, Galifianakis can indeed add that tag to his resume after stopping in at a local Philadelphia news station and doing the weather.
Just another day in the life of one of America’s funniest comics.
Zach Galifianakis stopped by Philadelphia’s CBS local affiliate CBS 3 Tuesday alongside Will Ferrell to promote their new film The Campaign on the set of Talk Philly. In an impromptu move, Galifianakis assisted CBS 3 anchor Katie Fehlinger with the weather report. Of course, Galifianakis was in standard funny-man-form, reports Philly. Ferrell apparently chose to sit this one out – after all, he has plenty of anchor experience already, doesn’t he?
Galifianakis and Ferrell are currently on a “campaign” trail of their own, working an 11-stop promotional tour for The Campaign, which hits theaters on August 10th. Most recently, the duo were in Toronto, where they reportedly rode a Zamboni to the Hockey Hall of Fame, and were awarded “Rob Ford for Mayor” buttons, according to Yahoo!News.
“Gotta give magnets everywhere you go…Gotta knock on doors. Don’t stop meeting people, shaking hands,” Ford advised the fictional politicians. “Just keep going hard…And return people’s phone calls. Customer service is number one.”
The Campaign had its red carpet premiere in Toronto on Monday, due for wide release next week.
