FLUTE AND SHOOT!

We all know and love the Jazz Flute scene from the first Anchorman movie, where Ron Burgundy began the seduction process by whipping out his instrument and eventually walking through people’s dinners and drinks.

“HEY AQUALUNG!”

Well, Burgundy is currently in the midst of a comeback, thanks to his new podcast – accurately titled The Ron Burgundy Podcast – but he hasn’t forgotten about his musical roots.

Back in January, he threw down the flute-y gauntlet to huge up-and-coming pop star Lizzo (if you haven’t heard ‘Juice‘, then you should, because it is perfect and amazing), challenging her to a Flute And Shoot flute-off.

Well, Lizzo didn’t back down from the challenge, and actually went all out with the response, delivering an almost shot-for-shot remake of the infamous scene from the movie, but changing the tune to her own smash hit ‘Juice’.

It is also filled with some new amazing one-liners, like when Lizzo turns to her back-up band and says “Girl, you know how I like that bass, you better twerk it, bitch!”

Yep, big fans of this whole thing.

Meanwhile, Lizzo’s new album Cuz I Love You is due for release this April, and will feature a duet with none other than Missy Elliott.
