Well today is just turning into one big Will Ferrell-character-apalooza in these parts. This mashup of 2013 earworm “Ho Hey” and Will Ferrell’s unforgettable impersonation of the late Cubs broadcaster is extraordinary. Come for the concept, stay for the hot dogs:

Oh, and why not—it’s almost a holiday, so let’s also revisit the only Lumineers spoof that trumps the Caray mash-up: Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, and Chris Tartaro as the “Chickeneers”, doing the song entirely in clucks:
