It’s safe to say that nobody was expecting to see the legendary Will Ferrell at the Toronto Raptors game recently, but as we all know, anything can happen in this wild city.
The Toronto Raptors posted a video of the star sitting courtside at Saturday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Ferrell made his presence known by standing up and raising his arms, which got fans cheering.
The actor then proceeded to hover above the players as they chatted on the bench, which didn’t last long because the players were busy getting into the zone.
“Did we just become best friends?”

“We’ve got a game going on, Will,” said announcer Matt Devlin as Ferrell was directed to his seat.
In true Will Ferrell fashion, the actor could not resist the opportunity to make hilarious commentary to get a chuckle from the players and nearby spectators.
The star asked the players questions like how much Chris Boucher weighs, and if any of them could give him Drake’s phone number.
Ferrell also shouted words of encouragement for the Raptors, like “it was a good play!”
The game ended with a win for Toronto. Maybe Will Ferrell was a good luck charm!
According to a video that has been widely circulating on social media, the actor was recently spotted on set in Toronto filming a mystery project.
It’s not clear what brought the actor to our city, but we are hoping he sticks around as long as Adam Sandler did over the summer.
