Will Ferrell and Zach Galifiankis were right here in St. Louis!
As part of their so-called ‘Whistle Stop Tour’ to promote their new movie “The Campaign,” the pair was right here in St. Louis at the Kiener Plaza Tuesday, July 17. Thousands of fans crowded around to see both Will and Zach.
Sportscaster Joe Buck interviewed the pair and also helped them feed Yankee, the Clydesdale that was awaiting their arrival in this heat! St. Louis Cardinals representative, Joe Clark, gave them both personalized jerseys. Representatives from the St. Louis Rams and Blues also gave the two comedians jerseys. Mascots of these teams were also running around before and during the event for entertainment. Along with all of this, Mayor Francis Slay of St. Louis declared Tuesday July 17, 2012 to be the official “Will and Zach Day” in St. Louis and the comedians received metals.
When a fan offered them pineapples, which the two proudly accepted, everyone started to chant “Free pineapples for all!” Galifiankis proclaimed St. Louis to be “Pineapple City.” Galifiankis also asked if anyone had a cheeseburger; sure enough, someone did!
Ferrel and Galifiankis had no problem keeping the crowd entertained in this 100 degree weather. Ferrell suggested that we have Universal Healthcare… for anyone older than 96! Galifiankis suggested that it be legal to make left turns on red, and some of his final words to the crowd were about just trying to make a left on red! I have to say, while sitting at traffic lights on my way home I contemplated it!
