Pics: He loves lamp - one Irish Anchor-fan dressed up brilliantly and stole the show at the Anchorman 2 London premiere

We would like to extend to you an invitation to the dressing up party...

Following on from the success of their visit to Ireland to meet JOE (and for the premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues of course), Burgundy and his boys continued to entertain the world at large as they landed in London for the UK leg of their juggernaut publicity tour.

In JOE's eyes, however, the London premiere show was stolen by one particular Irish Anchor-fan, John Carroll, who went to extreme lengths to show his dedication as he dressed up as a giant lamp and his friend as Brick Tamland.

Even James Marsden got in on the act...

And here's a pic John sent us so you can bask in the full glory of his outfit

We hope he didn't feel too 'light-headed'  with excitement as even the great Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) high-fived him in Anchorman approval:

According to John himself, the word from the lamp's mouth was as follows:

"Basically my mate Sam won tickets and chose me to go with him. He dressed up as Brick so I thought I'd go all out and get the lamp costume if you could call it that.

We were grabbed by the Jameson people and told we would be getting a photo with Will on the red carpet which didn't happen as they told too many people which I was gutted about. But managed to get a high 5 which was caught on camera by the Daily Mail. Seeing the video of the high 5 and Steve Carell talking about my costume was unreal. Second best moment of the year, after getting engaged last month!"

Tip of the hat, or should we say, lampshade, to you John, on both the costume AND for taking your good lady to Pleasure Town. The Channel 4 News Team would all be very proud of you.

And finally, we couldn't let the moment pass without reliving that magic Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) declaration of love one more time:

We all love lamp Brick, we all love lamp.
