Will Ferrel and Zach Galifianakis Are Here to Serve You Coffee

Yes you heard it right; actors Will Ferrel and Zach Galifianakis are in Seattle today promoting their new movie “The Campaign” scheduled to come out August 10th. Well, they’re using the term promoting loosely here, as the duo will be serving coffee at Local Color Cafe in Pike Place Market this afternoon, beginning around 1:45pm. According to the Seattle Pi,they are apparently touring the nation as if they were actually unleashing a political campaign. If you’re in or around the market this afternoon, this is sure to be a must-see celebrity appearance.

Will Ferrel and Zach Galifianakis in “The Campaign”

Other cities on their tour include a stop at Chicago’s Wrigley Field where the two will both throw out the first pitch, they’ll coach a tug of war at a Fort Worth Naval Air Station in Texas, and try to recreate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia… somehow I think Seattle got the short end of the stick, but I suppose they just figured everyone in the city limits is addicted to coffee.
