Will Ferrell really wanted Pacers players to drink his beer before their game against the 76ers on Monday, but didn’t have any takers. He had to drink the beer himself instead. Oh well!
Ferrell, who is currently filming a road trip style documentary, stopped in Indiana this weekend. He was chilling in a Walmart parking lot in Beech Grove on Sunday night.
He and his production crew took the short drive over to Indianapolis on Monday. The 55-year-old comedian pulled up to Gainbridge Fieldhouse and caught his first Pacers game.
Prior to tipoff, Ferrell took the court and showed the front office why he deserves to be pulled out of the stands and inserted into the starting lineup. He has range like Tyrese Haliburton!
Not long after getting his shots up, Ferrell went back into the locker room to get his mind right before the big game. The only difference between him and the players, other than physique and talent, was that he was crushing a beer. The players were not, even when coerced to do so.
Ferrell asked Aaron Nesmith if he wanted a sip because he was inactive Monday. The young forward respectfully declined.
Once game time rolled around, Ferrell was tasked with “getting the crowd Revved Up.” The new tradition, which began back in November, involves driving an Indy car onto the court and revving the engine. Get it? Revved up?
Ferrell got in the car and rolled his way onto the court with a little help from one of the most legendary rappers of all-time. 50 Cent was also in the house!
50 Cent’s liquor company is one of the official sponsors for the Pacers during the 2022-23 season so him being there was pure coincidence. Even Ferrell was surprised!
