Instead, the "Anchorman" actor put on the red sports coat that members of the Lakers' security team wear and stood right on the court! Of course, the former "Saturday Night Live" star doesn't play anything straight, so he slapped on a name tag with the moniker "Ted Vagina" and an awesomely bad mustache for the joke.
He did pretend to take the job seriously though, and even ousted former Lakers legend Shaquille O'Neal from the crowd, managing to stay stone-faced the entire time.

This isn’t the first time that Ferrell, a southern California native, has entertained Lakers fans. In 2011, he planted a smooch on friend and frequent co-star John C. Reilly that was captured on the Kiss Cam.
Then last year, the 45-year-old went solo as he gave a jokey intro before a New Orleans Hornets game while in the Big Easy for Mardi Gras.
Perhaps for his next prank, Ferrell can wear his Spartans cheerleading uniform on the sidelines!
