Transcript for Will Ferrell to play 100-year-old man in new adventure-comedy
We begin with this. Will Ferrell has plans to embark on a brand-new adventure producing and starring in "The 100-year-old man who climbed ow the window and disappeared." That is a long title based on a book. He plays Allan Karlson, a man who does that, climbs out of the window of his nursing home on his 100th birthday and goes on an adventure. The senior has flashbacks of his life interacting with folks like Winston Churchill and Harry S. Truman. If this all sounds a little crazy, we agree but the Swedish version of this movie earned two academy award nominations and was one of Sweden's highest grossings movies of all I'm. And will Ferrell is fantastic. So I'm really looking forward to that and the title just made me laugh. Yeah. Also in "Pop news" this morning, one of our favorites, rod Stewart and the pop group dance joining forces to ask that famous question, do you think I'm sexy? Listen up ??? and you think I'm sexy come on tell me so ??? Isn't it good? The new reimaged version of the 1978 classic is set for release this Friday. We're also going to get the chance to see rod and dance in action performing it Sunday, the 27th at the mtv VMA awards. The original was part of the legendary rocker's album "Blonds have more fun" spent four weeks at the top of the charts and dnce must be feeling sexy. They wrote what a pleasure to work with the iconic legend. Agreed. Looking forward to that as well. All good news today, George. Now a little something for you and I. And you maybe. I doubt it but maybe. You know this summer has been like the summer of creative rose consumption. We have told you guys about companies making rose ice pops, of course, froze is everywhere and now one company is delivering summer water as we call it here with a nostalgic spin thanks to electric rose who brings us portable pouchs that look a whole like Capri suns for grown-ups. So excited. The pouches are available in packs of six. I won't say it the other way around and, yes, they come with little straws and you can feel really good about drinking your rose from the pouch. The socially conscious brand plans to share proceeds with the charity water to wines.org, an organization THA provides clean water to people in need. At the moment electric rose pouches are still only available in limited release but you can, trust me, you can find them online. Drinking for a cause. Drinking for a cause.
