Will Ferrell warns of the dangers of snakes in hilarious TV interview
US comedy actor Will Ferrell had the audience in stitches as he put his own spin on the classic Irish song Danny Boy during an appearance on the David Letterman Show.
Ferrell appeared on the stage dressed in a stereotypical green leprechaun outfit as he told the host what St Patrick’s Day meant to him.
