Duluth/Superior Anchorman Kevin Jacobsen Prepares For More Movie Quotes From Anchorman 2
Last week it was announced that there will be an Anchorman sequel, Ron Burgundy said so- so it must be true! Immediately people rushed to Facebook and Twitter to express their joy at the news. I was overjoyed as well. I loved the original Anchorman! It was great. So many wonderful quotes! Then I saw this Facebook post from Kevin Jacobsen, Anchor at the Northland's News Center.
Am I the only one not excited about Anchor Man 2? More material for people to say over and over again when I'm out and about. It gets old.
Whhhaaatttt??? How could he say this? How horrible!
Then I remembered the "you have a face for radio" joke. I must have heard that a million times. Or some reference to Howard Stern, or WKRP. I could see his point of view. So I reached out to Kevin and wanted to hear the quotes that get old. He still hears them everyday, and it's been 7 years since the first Anchorman movie. Here's what he had to say about the movie:
I admit Anchor Man isn't a terrible movie. It's funny and has some memorable lines. Heck, it's about my line of work! (I wonder what police officers think about all the movies portraying them?)But the lines do get old when people are constantly coming up to you, reciting them, thinking they're a comedian. Dude- you're not the only person who thinks they're "funny."
If we happen to bump into each other, a simple "hello" will do. Seriously.
All in fun, I asked him "Which lines drive you nuts?"
"I'm in a glass case of emotion"
"What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing."
"I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal."
"I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany." (I admit.. I use this one, on the ladies. Haha! J/K!)
"You stay classy"
"I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks." - (This is a personal favorite)
"Unique New York."
"The Human Torch was denied a bank loan."
After I finished putting this together, I got one more e-mail from Kevin:
One more! How could I forget?
"I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly... "
It's 2012... we can't drink on the job. I don't know about you radio guys, though. :)
It's becoming increasingly difficult to pull that one off here too, Kevin.
