Will Ferrell Is Entering the Beauty Industry (Yes, Seriously!)
This isn't an early April Fool's joke: Will Ferrell is entering the beauty industry with the release of his new sunscreen. Although the packaging looks hilariously and extremely fake with a photo of the comedian in his best Coppertone Girl pose, it's completely legit and safe to use—seriously.
"The sun is an evil celestial demon. It tricks us into worshiping it with its warm alluring rays and bright primary color. Don't be fooled. It wants to destroy us and is hell bent on world domination. I've worked in my lab with a team of skin scientists and retired astronaut Brock Sternum to create what we think is our best sunscreen yet," Ferrell said about his first beauty venture.
All jokes aside, the SPF 30 lotion fittingly named Will Ferrell's Super Mega Sexy Hot Tan ($20 for two tubes), isn't just another celebrity endorsed beauty product. Ferrell helped create the sunscreen with College for Cancer, a charity that provides college scholarships to cancer survivors. Last year, the foundation surpassed $2 million in scholarships to more than 1,000 survivors around the country.
As Ferrell's infamous Zoolander character Mugatu would say, sun protection and helping a great, charitable cause are "SO hot right now."
