Brian Fantana's World-Famous Jimmy Cabainet

Adam McKay’s Amazing Anchorman 2 Trailer Breakdown Part II: The Sequel!

In a scene that’s a direct callback to the Sex Panther scene from the first movie, Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) introduces the boys to his personal collection of prophylactics.

“Brick has his first date ever. He’s extremely scared and confused and doesn’t know what a date is. And the guys are going to talk him through it and let him know how to treat a lady. As you might imagine, the advice is not so great. Part of the advice is you’re gonna need protection and they go through some options for him.“

Among the options presented to Brick: The Rigid Ghost (“that may be my favourite”), The Gentle Mongoose and Lou Dobin’s Good Time Wiener Pouch. “You’ve got good eyes!” laughs McKay. “Our props department came up with a rash of really funny ones. You’ll see it in the alt version. You could cut a 25-minute version of that scene, without exaggeration. We chewed and chewed on that. I realize that’s not the best reference to say in regards to condoms. I don’t know if there are any good word choices when you’re around something so directly phallic.”

Currently McKay is battling the MPAA over the movie’s rating, with the director struggling to keep this scene from becoming one of the casualties. “The MPAA is giving us a really hard time so we had to cut quite a few. It’s been frustrating,” he says. “You just say the word ‘condom’ and they start freaking out. It’s like the 1950s, it’s crazy.”

I noticed this was (unsurprisingly) different on the US trailer and featured a US anchor More

Getting a bit excited - gosh I hope this is good. Original is one of the great comedies, big pressure to live up to here. I love the idea on page 7 - releasing an alternate movie with new jokes in it. Can see this being a new trend, we already see 6 versions of trailers to try and get people watching as many as possible, why not the whole movie too? More
