Sure, Will Ferrell made fun of Toronto mayor Rob Ford when he appeared in-character as Ron Burgundy on "Conan." The two have some history though, which Will explained during a trip to "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Monday (Dec. 16) to promote "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues."

Will was in Toronto to do some promotional work for "The Campaign," alongside his co-star Zach Galifianakis, and spent some time with Mayor Ford, "pre-enjoyment" of crack, as he likes to call it. "We got to go to the Hockey Hall of Fame," Will says. "We got to pull up in a Zamboni. I got to drive a Zamboni through the streets of Toronto, which is great because I got to drive and Zach for to stand there and wave at people, muttering, 'This is the worst day of my life.'"

Then the two actors attended a press conference, where they were introduced by Mayor Ford. When Ferrell asked the those in attendance to give Ford a hand, it didn't go too well. "Not even a smattering of applause," Will remembers. "Just two people." Of course, he had to point out how bad the applause was to the mayor, which got a laugh out of everyone.

Sounds like a good time in Toronto.
