The sports correspondent delivered his entire report in-character, and simply wowed us with his dedication to the bit.
Check out Gerke's full Halloween report above, and marvel at his luscious mustache and manly bravado. And feel small in comparison, little man. This is what a true hero looks like.

Skyrockets in flight! "Anchorman" delight!
That's right — after years and years and oh so many painful years of waiting, the news team is finally ready to assemble again. Paramount Pictures and Will Ferrell have announced that "Anchorman 2" is officially happening, with most of the film's principal cast expected to come back for another round.
That means Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, easily the three biggest stars from the film, are all set to reprise their roles as jazz flute extraordinaire Ron Burgundy, dumb-as-a-brick Brick Tamland, and veritable sex panther Brian Fantana. Original director Adam McKay will once again step behind the lens, as well as co-write alongside Ferrell.
It's been six years since legendary San Diego newscaster Ron Burgundy first graced our movie screens, and the film has gone on to become a certified comedy classic. Now "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" has tackled the Blu-ray format with a Best Buy-exclusive release that packages some never-before-seen special features.
One of those is an interesting deleted scene that shows Burgundy crying over the loss of his former co-worker Veronica Cornerstone. We've managed to snag it for your viewing pleasure, so check it out below. And after you're through with that, check out all we've got on the budding "Anchorman" sequel.
Boxing, wrestling and the UFC aren't the only sports where you'll find people kicking the ever-loving tar out of each other. In fact, even in a game as mild-mannered as baseball, players can come to blows. Look no further than last night's heated altercation between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds during the first inning of their game, when Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips' venomous words towards the Cardinals escalated into a big — and stupid — seven minute brawl.
But fights have a tendency to escalate. What starts out as an intimate one-on-one display of dominance quickly evolves into an all-out brawl with several fists flying from all directions. Really, the Cards and Reds brawl could have escalated a whole lot worse — just check out some of these horribly escalated fictional fights for further proof! Read More...
Just like all of us here at Movies Blog, the "Anchorman" cast is bummed out by the news
that Paramount passed on making a sequel. When MTV caught up with Christina Applegate recently, Ms. Veronica Corningstone herself, she revealed her continued sadness at not having the opportunity to revisit her beloved character.
"We're all really sad that... at the moment, it looks like we're not doing it," Applegate said at VH1's Do Something Awards Monday. Read More...
Sadly, it seems that an "Anchorman" sequel is not to be. Ron Burgundy and his news team compadres were hoping for another big screen outing, but due to financial constraints, Paramount and director Adam McKay were never able to see eye-to-eye on making the film happen.
But even sadder than the death of the "Anchorman" sequel is the death of a proposed "Anchorman" musical. McKay told CHUD that he was hoping to get a musical version off the ground for a limited four month run on Broadway prior to filming on the sequel. Alas, it's not going to happen now.
That's not to say that the musical wasn't close to a reality, however. In fact, we've unearthed this legendary list of music numbers that very nearly wound up in the proposed "Anchorman" musical*, and as you can imagine, hilarity was bound to ensue. Check out the song titles after the jump! Read More...
Oh, vuvuzela, how entertaining you are to say, how infernal you are to hear for 90 straight minutes of World Cup play! Yes, South Africa's favorite horns — bleating continuously during each match like a monstrous storm of prehistoric bumble bees — has divided the globe. Stadium-goers love 'em, while players, broadcasters and countless viewers at home just want them to go away.
Alas, for the moment, it appears the vuvuzela is here to stay. That horn has even got its own Twitter feed, from which it broadcasts missives like, "Bzzzzzz? Bzzzzzz." Heh. We think its time to move on. But to what? The MTV Movies team has done some thinking and come up with five of cinema's finest instruments that would be welcome — and awesome! — replacements for the vuvuzela. Read More...
Questions, so many questions. Important ones. What is the meaning of life? Why is the economy crumbling? And the big, bad mother of them all: where the crap is "Anchorman 2" already? Nobody really knows. Including Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd, the stars of the first movie, who said as much on Sunday night at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
"Salaries are down, I don't know," Rudd said, referring to the previous revelation that the key players were willing to take a pay cut in order to assemble for the sequel. "I was actually talking to [writer/director] Adam McKay about this last night and we don't know." Read More...
"Anchorman 2" is the Bigfoot of the movies world. Everyone wants to see it happen, reports even occasionally surface about sightings but, in truth, it may very well just not exist. I mean, it's real to an extent. Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell, Judd Apatow, Adam McKay and Steve Carell have all talked openly about it, wanting to do it. Carell even told us recently that it's already been shot, though we're pretty sure he was kidding.
MTV's Eric Ditzian recently spoke with writer/director McKay, who also has "The Other Guys" coming out this summer (August 6), and he revealed that there's more to the ongoing saga of "Anchorman 2" than the fans actually realize. Many have speculated that the sequel hasn't happened primarily because the talented cast have only become more famous since the 2004 release, and pulling them together for an ensemble with their busy schedules is difficult. As it turns out, there's more to it than that. Read More...
