Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis Promote "The Campaign" in Philadelphia
On a nationwide tour to promote their new movie "The Campaign," Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis stopped in Philadelphia today (July 31) to affix their John Hancocks to a commemorative copy of the Constitution to celebrate its 225th anniversary.
While the "Old School" actor dressed up in a tri-cornered hat, ruffled neckpiece, and red fingerless gloves, the "Hangover" star played it conservatively in a blue buttondown dress shirt and khaki pants.
"The Campaign" parodies the American election circus, but the two stars worry if truth may be stranger than fiction. "We were thinking that when we first read the script, it seemed so outlandish," said Ferrell. "Then when we started filming, we were like, 'We hope this movie goes far enough."
In an age where communication is lightning fast and just about everyone has a camera on their personal cell phone, how can future politicians overcome the skeletons in their closets that are likely to be revealed?
Ferrell jokes, "That's the problem. We were just discussing this. If you're two or three years old, you really have to watch yourself with cameras if you plan on being president."
Galifianakis added, " God, I think all of my skeletons are on YouTube."
