Stars! They’re just like us! They’ll even take your needlessly complicated orders for grande decaf soy Americanos with extra heat… to promote their upcoming multimillion-dollar studio films. … Okay, maybe they’re not just like us.
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis will be taking orders and serving drinks at Local Color Cafe in Pike Place Market this Thursday at 1:45. The powerhouse comedy duo will almost assuredly end up delivering more punchlines than cappuccinos. This stunt is part of their promotional tour for the upcoming political comedy The Campaign, starring Ferrell and Galifianakis as rival North Carolina congressional candidates. Cam Brady (Ferrell) is a slick four-term congressman who has always run unopposed until a sweet simpleton—Marty Huggins (Galifianakis)—enters the race. Hilarity ensues. The Campaign, directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Fockers), opens in theaters August 10.
