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.
