Channel 4, ITV And Sky News Teams Recreate The 'Anchorman' Scene And It's Perfect

For those of you who absolutely love Anchorman, have I got a treat for you.

You must remember the fight scene where the news team from San Diego television station, KVWN channel 4, and other rival news teams? It all kicks off with Ron Burgandy's immortal line: "Uh-oh, here comes trouble" and ends with the ever-memeable "Boy, that escalated quickly".

If you'd like me to refresh your memory, here's the scene in full...

That DID escalate quickly. Absolutely brilliant scene though, right?

Anyway, Channel 4 has only gone and made their own version for their hilarious programme 'The Last Leg'. It features Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Jon Snow, Dermot Murnaghan and Sarah-Jane Mee and it is perfect.

What makes it even better is the surprise cameo at the end...

Seriously, when did former Labour leader Ed Miliband get so much banter?! I like him more now than I did when he took to a live TV interview to implore that he was a strong enough contender to be Prime Minister. Remember: "Hell yeah, I'm tough enough."

Or when he ate that bacon sarnie and the world couldn't handle his gurn. It was like a throwback to a 90s rave.

But he's really come into his own since becoming a regular feature on 'The Last Leg'. Fair play to him, make the most of your fame.

Plus, his Twitter is excellent.

Like when George Osborne was appointed as the editor of the Evening Standard...

Or when Piers Morgan Tweeted this..

Ed's response is gold.

Or on Theresa May's U-turns..

But one of my favourite moments was when he took to the Channel 4 programme for a bacon sandwich photoshoot and ended up singing a-ha's Take on Me in various states of 80s dress...
