Ron Burgundy Discourages Piracy In New “Public Service Announcement”


It is no secret that over the past decade digital piracy has become a widespread concern for both the music and film industries. As nimble-fingered thieves have continuously gotten smarter, authorities have likewise had to find new ways to combat them, and though many tiny battles are won each day, the war still wages on year after year.

In an effort to preserve their respective crafts, slews of notable actors, directors, and musicians have publicly spoken out against the crime, some even going on to become the faces of the anti-piracy movement. However, it is unlikely that any of them have done so as eloquently as San Diego’s most beloved news anchor, Ron Burgundy (sometimes known as Will Ferrell), who recently joined forces with to release a public service announcement denouncing virtual thieves. You can view it at the end of this post, after the jump.

In the coming months, Burgundy and his crew will return to the big screen in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which was directed by Adam McKay and is currently slated for a December 20 release. If this most recent cameo is any indication, the years have been well to the TV legend, as he seems to have maintained his quick wit, impeccable sense of style, and love for broadcast journalism, scotch, and hookers.
