Snickers Workwear ‘Hero of the Week’… Ron Burgundy

To kick off our new Snickers Workwear ‘Hero of the Week’ feature, we’ve decided to go for one of the hardest working men in the (imaginary) media industry, Ron Burgundy.

WE NEED ALL OF YOU, TO STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND LISTEN… There are 101 reasons to love the Ron Burgundy character, from his easily recognisable quotes to his meticulously manicured moustache, Ron really is one of the best characters that Hollywood has produced in a long time.


The popularity of the KVWN Channel 4 News Team lead anchor is pretty clear, as before the announcement of Anchorman 2 was made on the Conan O'Brien show nearly two years ago, people were still quoting some of Ron's best-remembered lines, even though Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy hit cinemas back in 2004 – 9-years ago.

Here’s a look at just some of those famous Burgundy quotes:

"I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly..."


"Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina."

And who could forget:

"Good night, I'm Ron Burgundy. Go f*ck yourself San Diego."

Ron also has a soft spot for us Irish as he recently recorded a very special news cast to inform the world of Love/Hate...


It’s safe to say that Ron is the man that every woman wants and every man wants to be. Why you ask? It’s simple, he’s not just Anchorman… he’s a Hammer man too and just so you know, before anything gets hammered, screwed or laid by Ron Burgundy, it's Snickers Workwear protection he’s packin’ my friends…

And that right there, is why it’s no surprise that he is this week’s Snickers Workwear ‘Hero of the Week’
