Behold Will Ferrell's Spectacular Figure Skating Performance

On Thursday's Tonight Show, Will Ferrell came out dressed in a spandex tuxedo, top hat and white gloves. That probably doesn't surprise you.


He called it his "figure skating outfit." During his (very funny) interview with Jimmy Fallon, Ferrell lamented about his failure to make it to Sochi, where he was definitely supposed to be skating tonight. But alas, he missed his chance to be a figure skating star because "nobody told [him] when the tryouts were." So instead, Ferrell performed his epic, perfect figure skating routine (to the theme music from Downton Abbey, which was also the theme of his costume) for the Tonight Show audience.

It truly is a thing of beauty.


Has Gawker Media acknowledged that it's doing a week-long promotion of the Tonight Show masqueraded as articles? Is this even worth asking about? The line between advertisement and non-advertisement has never been less clear.
