With Anchorman 2: The Legend Returns opening in theaters December 20th, just about everyone will recognize the mustachioed suit-clad character Ron Burgundy, whether they've ever seen Will Ferrell in the role or not. That's because the promotional tie-ins with Paramount Pictures upcoming film are, as Ron would say, "Kind of a Big Deal."
From shilling for Dodge as their Durango spokesman to his own branded whiskey, the character has inspired everything from a Ben and Jerry Scotch-flavored ice cream to Jockey briefs. Action Figures, LEGO Mini figs, Replica Coats, Panther Sex Cologne and more. Here's a look at the best of the bunch.
JOCKEY ANCHORMAN BRIEFS
Jockey has launched 100% cotton briefs briefs as The Stuff legends Are Made Of with a unique Y-front® fly that provides ample support for your little anchorman in stylish colors that say "I'm kind of a big deal!" - Ron Burgundy.
“Jockey had one of the legendary ad campaigns of the early ‘80s, and the new movie hilariously depicts pop culture of that time,” said LeeAnne Stables, President of Consumer Products at Paramount Pictures. “Producing this limited edition line is a way to extend the fun and anticipation for the film to fans of the movie and the Jockey brand.”

BEN AND JERRY'S SCOTCHY SCOTCH SCOTCH ICE CREAM
Created in honor of beloved Ron Burgundy, the TV news anchor with a penchant for all things scotch, the flavor is a creamy concoction of butterscotch ice cream with ribbons of butterscotch swirl.
“Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch is a delicious ice cream and I hope Ben and Jerry consider my other suggestions,” said Ron Burgundy. “Malt liquor marshmallow, well liquor bourbon peanut butter, and cheap white wine sherbet."
“Having Ben & Jerry’s celebrate the return of Ron Burgundy to the big screen with the introduction of this special ice cream is an exciting and delicious way to build anticipation for the film,” said LeeAnne Stables, President of Consumer Products at Paramount Pictures. “We especially enjoyed the sampling process over the last several months to find the perfect Scotchy scotch flavor.”
Scotchy Scotch Scotch is available now at participating scoop shops across the country. Pints of the flavor will arrive on store shelves over the next few weeks. You can use their online locator to find the flavor near you.
