Will Ferrell Hit a Cheerleader in the Head with a Basketball - Watch

Will Ferrell nailed a cheerleader in the face with a basketball during the Pelicans-Lakers game on Wednesday. The actor was then carried out of the arena by security.

It was all an effort to promote Ferrell’s new movie “Daddy’s Home,” where Ferrell stars as a mild-mannered step-dad trying to impress his new family, according to IMDB. The film will be a reunion with Ferrell’s “The Other Guys” co-star Mark Wahlberg.

Many fans at the basketball game seemed to fall for the ruse and some captured photos and video of Ferrell being “thrown out” of the game.

And we’re going to take a wild guess and say the cheerleader was in on the gag.
