Video: Will Ferrell’s Player Introductions From Last Night’s Hornets-Bulls Game

Last night the New Orleans Hornets let Will Ferrell announce the starting lineups for the Hornets’ game against the Chicago Bulls.

Ferrell, who is in the Big Easy shooting a movie with Zach Galifianakis about “political rivals who are seeking the same congressional seat” (must see), got especially clever with the visiting Bulls’ lineup, introducing Joakim Noah as “a Scorpio and a terrible dancer” and announcing that Luol Deng “collects rare birds and has a pet dolphin named Chachi.”

Watch the entire thing from CSN Chicago:


The Bulls ended up winning 90-67.
