Christopher Cross performed his song "Ride Like the Wind" last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, backed up by a familiar face. Ron Burgundy took some time off from his incredibly strenuous newscasting schedule to help Cross sing the song, providing a beautiful (atonal) harmony to compliment Cross' wonderful 70s disco-rock vibe. Clad in a fur coat and a sailor's hat, Burgundy randomly uttered comments that kept the performance entirely unique from the album version of the song like "God, I sound good," and "Is that smoke? Is there a fire in here because I just want to raise the question: Is that atmospheric smoke or is there a fire in here?" in reference to the stage fog effects.

Burgundy closes out the song with a monologue overtop of the song: "That's right folks. When Ron Burgundy rides, he rides like the wind. Not like a Subaru, or a golf cart, like a god darn wind. Powerful and sleek. And invisible. You feel that draft up your skirt ladies? That's me." He immediately backpedals though: "I'm sorry that was creepy, that was a little creepy I'm sorry. I smoked a funny cigarette with Christopher Cross backstage and uh, lets just say the filter is off." Burgundy, in a promotional push for his new movie Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, has immortalized himself hilariously in the world of Rock and Roll.

Look for "Ride Like the Wind" on the Anchorman 2 Official Soundtrack, which you can find on iTunes.
