So, sure, all mashups we put up on NextMovie have an element of fun to them, but we admit that there are other supercuts and juxtapositions worthy of our attention out there. This is one of those transcendent mashups, and we can thank the smooth, dulcet sounds of Ron Burgundy and Macklemore for that. (Actually we can thank whoever flawlessly edited this video, but still.)
Whereas most mashups are on-the-surface quick cuts, this one gets into the nitty gritty of the movie itself and blends its notable quotables with the song's lyrics as smoothly as an apartment that smells of rich mahogany. It turns out that "Thrift Shop" and "Anchorman" were made for each other.
It makes you wish that "Thrift Shop" was a song from the '70s (yes, the only song featuring a white rapper and a DJ from the '70s) so it could have been put into the first movie. And sadly, by the time "Anchorman 2" comes out, we're all going to be sick of "Thrift Shop" and wish it was never made. It's just one of those facts of life that we'll have to accept.
Maybe in another life, guys. Until then, keep on keeping on in this beautiful mashup.
