View Comments ()



    A billboard in New York City appears to show Will Ferrell cheering on Kings ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final between Los Angeles and the Rangers.

    Will Ferrell is serious about his Los Angeles Kings.

    Just ask New Yorkers.

    A “Go Kings Go!” advertisement popped up outside Madison Square Garden Friday ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and Kings.

    Twitter user Matt Kolowski snapped the photo around 3 p.m. after noticing the Anchorman star on an electronic billboard giving a warrior cry in the heart of New York City. In the photo, Ferrell appears to be making a lot of noise for the Kings as he sports his team’s colors.

    The billboard trolling comes just a few days after Ferrell, a long-time Kings fan, said the Los Angeles-New York battle is good for his city, hockey as a whole, and yes, even New York.

    "It's great for the East Coast to find out how hockey really is played," Ferrell joked.

    Los Angeles heads into Game 2 at the Staples Center leading the series 1-0. The series shifts back to New York on Monday.
