The cast of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” proved that they’ve still got golden pipes this week when they performed an impromptu rendition of “Afternoon Delight,” the Starland Vocal Band song the Channel 4 News team famously sang in the first film.

Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner reprised the tune during the Sydney premiere of “Anchorman 2,” inviting the crowd to join in. The audience was delighted by the performance, clapping and singing along, and cracked up as Koechner made his signature wacky sound effect toward the end of the chorus.

Indeed, the cast and fans have plenty to be delighted about: Paramount just announced that the flick will open two days earlier than planned to cash in on audience excitement for the long-awaited sequel to 2004’s “Anchorman.” The legend will now continue on Wednesday, December 18 instead of the 20th.

Here’s hoping the singing continues in “Anchorman 2,” too.
