CRACK - "It’s just refreshing!"

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

Case in point. Brian Fantana presents a hard-hitting report on crack, a brand new drug that’s hitting the streets, culminating in an in-studio demonstration that has Ron declaring ‘it’s just refreshing!’

“In that exact moment it feels quite refreshing. There’s punitive ramifications. It doesn’t go well. It’s not pro-crack! We’ve talked about how cocaine in the 70s was viewed as not that big a deal. It’s fascinating to hear stories from people in the 70s who would just do cocaine casually and the idea is that these guys are so dumb that when crack comes around, they think ‘oh, big deal, a little pick-me-up’ and innocently stumble into it. We shot a whole chunk for it that’s not in the movie where Brian Fantana explained how he called the police and he called the federal government trying to find out if it’s legal or not and everyone hung up on him, so he assumes it’s legal. They’re going for it. Whatever boundaries they can push with their news, they’re going to do it."

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
