With the kickoff set to happen at lunchtime on the east coast, and just when people are getting into the office on the west coast, if productivity is down today, that’s because everyone will be watching the crucial United States vs. Germany World Cup match today. And one person who is super stoked for it is Will Ferrell.
The actor made his way to Brazil where he popped by to fire up fans gathered by the U.S. Soccer Federation. And as always, it’s classic Ferrell. The funnyman came out not only to give fans a thrill, but to promise to play in today’s game too, and take it to the next level, if he must, in order to secure the crucial win to get through to the next round.
“I’m not going to lie to you, I’m not in the best shape, but I’m going to try my best and live up to the spirit of this American team,” he said. “If the game gets close, I will bite, I bite will bite every tournament player if I have to.” Take that Luis Suarez. Watch below. [The Wrap]
