Watch The 'Anchorman' Cast & One Direction Sing 'Afternoon Delight' On 'SNL'

Posted: Updated:

When "SNL" announced that Paul Rudd would be hosting the show to promote "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," they might as well have mentioned that a cameo from "SNL" alum Will Ferrell was all but inevitable. Not only did Ferrell show up in the opening monologue of last night's episode, but he and Rudd were joined by Steve Carell and David Koechner (also a former "SNL" cast member) to bring together the entire Channel 4 News Team.

The four men banded with the night's musical guest One Direction to recreate one of the most memorable scenes from the first "Anchorman" movie, in which they spontaneously jumped into an a cappella rendition of the Starland Vocal Band's 1976 hit "Afternoon Delight." Of course, this turned into a nine-person harmony with the addition of the superstar U.K. boy band. (Harry Styles was ten years old when "Anchorman" came out.)
