Everyone’s Favorite Faux Anchorman Ron Burgundy Gets Museum Exhibit

burgundy_newseumYou might want to cancel that big winter trip to Europe and instead fly to Washington, D.C. to celebrate the upcoming release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

The Newseum in partnership with Paramount Pictures has announced the opening of an exhibit featuring movie anchor Ron Burgundy.

“I’m kind of a big deal, so it’s no surprise that there will soon be a whole exhibit about me in our nation’s capital,” Burgundy wrote on the Newseum’s website. “They literally raided my closet and the Channel 4 News set to put my stuff on display at what they call the Newseum in Washington, D.C. So stop whatever you’re doing and make plans to visit my glass case of emotion, ‘Anchorman: The Exhibit.’

In a video on the site, Burgundy asks, “What the hell is the Newseum?” Then after realizing the Newseum is a museum about news he asks, “What took the Newseum so damn long to give me a call? I mean, come on you knuckleheads.”

The exhibit opens one week from Thursday on November 14. Click here for more info.
