Anchorman Ron Burgundy has issued yet another special Irish address - this time, to Taoiseach Enda Kenny, whom he challenges to a live debate.

While Will Ferrell seems to have entirely transformed into Ron Burgundy promoting the highly anticipated Anchorman sequel, his love affair with Ireland is continuing apace.

After special messages regarding the Love/Hate season finale and The Late Late Toy Show, he's back for more of Ireland, this time, welcoming Mr Kenny into his inner circl.

He recorded a special address for the Taoiseach, in which he proposes a live debate in order to avoid any 'pesky gaffes'. And even better is the fact that Burgundy refers to Mr Kenny as 'Edna' rather than 'Enda' Kenny.

"Live television is a terrifying beast to master, but I'm here to lend a helping hand. I challenge you, Edna Kenny, to a live debate here on GNN," he began in the special video clip, produced by Paramount.

"Keep in mind there will be teleprompters, so everything will be scripted and there will be no risk of those pesky gaffes. We will of course advertise the debate as live, but in reality, we'll probably do it on a cosy Saturday afternoon.
