Everyone's a soccer fan! In preparation for the US's match against Germany during the World Cup, Anchorman Will Ferrell descended upon a pep rally in Recife, Brazil and whipped fans into a frenzy -- and we'v got the hilarious video!
After being introduced by Teddy Roosevelt impersonator Teddy Goalsevelt and United States Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati, Will "Secret Weapon" Ferrell, pumped up the eager crowd and gave a rousing speech to the unsuspecting soccer fans.
I am so honored to be playing tomorrow," Ferrell said. "I'm not gonna lie to you, I'm not in the best shape. I'm not in soccer shape right now, but I'm gonna try my best and I'm going to live up to the spirit of this American team."
The 49-year-old also added, "If the games get close, I will bite the opponent. I will bite every German player if I have to!"
The biting joke is a reference to an previous World Cup game in which Uruguay player Luis Suarez's bit an Italian defender during Tuesday's match. This morning FIFA issued a statement barring Suarez from the rest of the World Cup, for nine games and for four months of play, which is the harshest suspension in the history of the World Cup.
“Such behavior cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field,” Claudio Sulser, the chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committee, said in a statement.
Glad to see Will is using the shocking incident for comedy -- because that sh*t cray!
Biting or no biting, the funny man left the eager crowd in a tizzy, chanting, "I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WILL! I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!"
