Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reprised their Step Brothers roles at the weekend and were aided by none other than Snoop Dogg.
The trio linked up at Ferrell’s ‘Best Night of Your Life 2’ benefit show on October 21st at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. They performed ‘Boats ‘N Hoes’ from the hit 2008 comedy Step Brothers as well as Snoop Dogg’s ‘Gin and Juice’, the second single from his 1993 debut album, Doggystyle.
For the performance, Ferrell and Reilly reprised their roles from Adam McKay’s movie as warring step brothers turned best friends, Brennan Huff and Dale Doback, respectively. In doing so, they wore white matching suits as they did in the original music video for ‘Boats ‘N Hoes’ in the movie. It comes when they pitch their entertainment company, Prestige Worldwide, at Derek’s dinner party.
Fans of the film will remember that the presentation backfires when the video shows the boat crashing, which crushes their parents’ – Robert (Richard Jenkins) and Nancy (Mary Steenburgen) – dreams of sailing the world on it. This leads to them announcing their divorce. Eventually, the two former enemies connect to reunite their parents under one roof.
Proceeds from the benefit show on Saturday night went to the charity, Cancer for College. Alongside Ferrell, C. Reilly, and Snoop Dogg’s performance, the likes of St. Vincent, Beck, Jack Black, Fred Armisen and even Keanu Reeves’ band, Dogstar, made appearances.
Step Brothers isn’t the only classic comedy that Will Ferrell has returned to this month. At the start of October, he reprised his role as Frank ‘The Tank’ Ricard by DJing a frat party at USC.
