Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day – Watch Funny Man Will Ferrell Sing “Danny Boy”

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day – Watch Will Ferrell Sing “Danny Boy” on David Letterman

Well… he kind of sings Danny Boy.

“Every St. Patrick’s Day I put on my outfit and I walk the streets of New York educating people on the dangers of snakes. Try to guess how many snake attacks just in the last year alone in Manhattan…. 36,000. There’s a snake attack that occurs in this city every 9 seconds. Of course you wouldn’t know that… because the media doesn’t want you to know that. But I’m out there every St. Patrick’s Day.”   — Will Ferrell



Just in case you came here hoping to actually hear “Danny Boy,” here’s a wonderful rendition from Celtic Woman, live in South Bend, Indiana.
