Will Ferrell’s:

    Will Ferrell really doesn’t like Norway. At least he’s got a reason. Per capita, Ferrell tells viewers, Norway is beating the United States in electric car production. But General Motors, who put out the spot, is hoping to make huge inroads in that category by 2025. In the meantime, Ferrell’s presence in a Super Bowl commercial this year takes him to Scandinavia.  GM even purchased a huge 90-second slot for this commercial, showing how much they’re investing in the electric car concept. The standard Super Bowl ad time is 30 seconds, and that’s for a cost of more than $5 million. MORE: Watch the best commercials before Super Bowl 55 Will Ferrell Super Bowl commercial The commercial opens with a very grizzled Ferrell looking at a globe. Apparently he’s embraced the quarantine beard. Ferrell informs the audience that Norway is beating the U.S. at electric car production. So, of course, he punches right through the small globe he has, taking it out on the outline of Norway on his spherical map. “I won’t stand for it,” Ferrell says. “…...
    Will Ferrell has had it up to here with those smug Norwegians and their EV buying habits. So he’s going to do something about it and is taking Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina along for the ride in GM’s new 90-second “Big Game” ad. Perturbed by the fact that more than half of all new vehicles sold in the Scandinavian country are electrically driven (thanks in large part to generous financial incentives provided by the Norwegian government), compared to just four percent of those in the US, Ferrell takes it upon himself change America’s perceptions about EV technology. His solution is simple: show off GM’s new Ultium battery technology by hopping into the new Hummer EV — while Thompson and Awkwafina get behind the wheel of the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq — and heading for Norway. But, in classic Ferrell style, the roadtrip quickly devolves into complete anarchy involving high seas shipping containers, caribou sightings and a wrong turn at Sweden.
    Will Ferrell is heading to Scandinavia in one of the ads General Motors is running during the Sunday’s Super Bowl. (General Motors) In the spot Ferrell has a problem with the fact that Norway sells more electric cars per capita than the U.S. and decides to take a Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV across the Atlantic to "crush those lugers." Norway doesn’t have a domestic auto industry and imports all of its vehicles, so it’s not clear exactly what he’s hoping to accomplish when he gets there, but he enlists the help of fellow comic actors Kenan Thomson and Awkwafina along the way. The ad promotes the Ultium electric vehicle platform that will underpin GM’s future battery-powered models and also features the GMC HUMMER EV that will also be built on it. Needless to say, Ferrell’s trip doesn’t go entirely to plan.

    Will Ferrell will star in GM's upcoming Super Bowl commercial, an extension of the company's "Everybody In" ad campaign for EVs.GM DETROIT – With the help of actor Will Ferrell, General Motors is waging a battle against Norway in a 60-second ad during Super Bowl LV. Why did GM choose the Nordic country known for its gorgeous fjords and scenery? Because it's also the world's top-selling electric vehicle market per capita. The comedic ad – called "No Way, Norway" – features Ferrell rallying fellow comedians Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina to go to Norway in GM's upcoming GMC Hummer pickup and Cadillac Lyriq crossover EVs to "crush them." "Well I won't stand for it," says Ferrell as he punches a globe in the ad. "With GM's new Ultium battery, we're going to crush those lugers. Crush them! Let's go America." GM last month launched a new corporate-level ad campaign – its first in more than a decade – focused on the automaker's all-electric vehicle efforts, including 30 new models globally by 2025. Ultium is the automaker's forthcoming battery technology and platform,...

    Georgia is ground zero in the battle for the balance of power in Washington, D.C., as control of the U.S. Senate now hinges on the outcome of the two Senate runoff races in the Peach State.

    Ricky Bobby is back and he’s still a winner. (Columbia Pictures) Actor Will Ferrell, who played Bobby in the NASCAR parody “Talladega Nights” is also a part-owner of the LAFC MLS soccer club and he has now revealed the secret to the team’s success. Speaking to ESPN during halftime of the LAFC-L.A. Galaxy game on Saturday night, Ferrell said that whenever the team needs a goal he pulls out the Wonder Bread helmet Bobby wore in the film and it always works. There must be something to it, because not only did the team destroy its crosstown rival 6-2, but it is the defending regular season champ. Ferrell, who stars in the new Netflix movie “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga,” didn’t reveal if Ricky Bobby would ever be back on the big screen, but did say that he’s been spending his time in lockdown working on his core, reading, taking long walks and soul-searching.

Ferrell had some stubble and long hair growing, and then he broke out a helmet worn by Ricky Bobby, the character he played in “Talladega Nights.” He also had a long pause after being asked what he did during quarantine.

    In his latest film, Will Ferrell tackles one of the most famous music events in Europe: the Eurovision Song Contest. "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga" follows Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as they participate in the contest, which gave rise to acts like ABBA and Céline Dion, and welcomes artists from primarily European countries to perform original songs before voting determines a winner. In a conversation with Fox News, Ferrell, 52, admitted that "very few" fans had heard of the contest, similar to himself until a few years ago. ANNE HATHAWAY REVEALS THAT DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER NOLAN DOESN'T ALLOW PEOPLE TO SIT ON SET "I had just seen it on our first trip to visit my wife's family in Sweden ... After dinner one night, everyone said 'Shall we sit down and watch Eurovision?' It was like 'OK, what's that?'" the funnyman recalled. "And I sat there for three hours wondering 'What is happening here? This is amazing.'" The "Saturday Night Live" alum said that "the flamboyant staging" and the "eclectic" songs made it a "perfect jumping-off point for a comedy."...

    Will Ferrell is the funniest comedic actor of the past 20 years, a master of buffoonish absurdity whose gift for juvenile nonsense—often laced with explosive aggression—has rightly made him a Hollywood A-lister. It therefore brings me no joy to report that his latest, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, is not only a two-hour slog of lavish production design and on-location filmmaking minus any trace of humor, but further confirmation that the star has gotten himself stuck in a rut of diminishing-returns repetition. What was once inspired for the Saturday Night Live veteran is now old hat, with Ferrell’s new Netflix feature (out June 26) stark evidence that he’s become comfortable regurgitating his trademark shtick—and, in the process, forgotten what made it work in the first place. Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga concerns Lars (Ferrell) and Sigrit (Rachel McAdams), two clownish Icelandic pop-star wannabes whose lifelong dream is to win the international Eurovision song contest. Actually, it’s Lars’ dream, since regardless of her love of music, Sigrit is primarily in their duo (dubbed Fire Saga)...
