Fans who bought a premium super ticket to see "Anchorman 2" two days early in New York City were surprised when stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and David Koechner showed up to introduce the movie.
In addition to seeing the sequel first, fans received a digital download of "Anchorman – Wake Up Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie," a pre-ordered digital download of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," and $5 to spend at the AMC concession stand for the purchase of a $50 ticket.
Looks like it was money well spent.
Watch Ferrell, Carell, and Koechner surprise fans below:
