Here’s the Trailer for HBO’s Will Ferrell Spring Training Documentary (Video)
Remember when Will Ferrell played 10 different positions for 10 different teams and earned his very own Topps baseball card during MLB Spring Training? At the time it seemed like just another sports-related publicity stunt from the world’s funniest sports fanatic. (Well, maybe the world’s second-funniest sports fanatic.) But as it turns out, it was not just some one-off publicity stunt. HBO was there to document the entire thing, and now they’ve turned the footage into a documentary called Ferrell Take the Field.
John Madden is probably disgusted. But judging from the trailer, which features a pretty hilarious “inspirational” speech from Ferrell, the film will be pretty good.
Check it out:
“They say there’s nothing more American than grabbing a hot dog, heading to the ballpark, and watching nine guys from the Dominican Republic make magic on the field. But you know what, today I learned they are wrong. Make that eight Dominicans and one guy from Irving, California.”
Yep, I’m sold.
Ferrell Takes the Field, a.k.a. the Will Ferrell spring training documentary, premieres Saturday, September 12, 2015, at 10pm ET on HBO.
