Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 2627: Ron Burgundy in a Real News Cast - Will Ferrell's Body Language (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Ron Burgundy took part in a real newscast on 30 November 2013 in North Dakota. The actor Will Ferrell is brilliant in his melodramatic portrayal of the fictional news anchor. In a brilliant promo for his upcoming sequel, "Anchorman 2, The Legend Continues", Ferrell acted and reported for the duration of the broadcast (see above).

Ferrell's acting calls to attention a particular body language signal which he deliberately uses excessively as Ron Burgundy - the "Chronically Contracted Forehead". Perhaps one of the most reliable nonverbal signals of insincerity, when the forehead muscles are contracted a high percentage of time, be warned.

Although this is presented in a comedic context, the ability to detect insincerity in particular is skill which should be highly cultivated. For it's the individuals whom are adept at their insincerity who will position themselves in strategic places where they can cause long term damage.
