Casa de mi Padre opens wide tomorrow and Will Ferrell has spent this week making his rounds, upping the ante on standard talk show appearances by drinking bloody marys in bathrobes with Nick Offerman on Today. The man takes run of the mill Hollywood PR, pumps it full of a super serum comprised of equal parts random and funny, and makes it work exponentially harder for him on the web.
In other words, the man is a GD viral marketing wizard. There is no denying this. He's been doing it for years. Hell, even his movie ideas are internet bait now. A white comedian who doesn't speak Spanish starring in a Spanish language movie? Yes and please.
So now seems like a promising time to revisit some of the most masterful web-baiting of Will Ferrell's career. For the sake of keeping this list manageable, we'll be concentrating on the viral moments where Ferrell wasn't in movie character. Everyone else in Hollywood, you're doing it wrong.
