Last month, Wichita anchor Justin Kraemer doomed his jump to a Colorado Springs TV station with an Anchorman-style gaffe: He said, "Let's get the fuck out of here" at the end of a newscast. Now, the still-unemployed newsman is trying to make lemonade out of lemons with a parody video that finds him reenacting key scenes from the Will Ferrell original with a little help from former co-workers and even Bill Kurtis, who narrates both Anchorman films. Look below to see the good-humored results, along with the real F-bomb clip and a word from Ron Burgundy.
