Ferrell told MSNbc.com, "It's obviously extremely nice and flattering, but then we felt guilty that we were just whisked into a coffee place and really only made contact with maybe 25 people.It's almost like you want to take a full-page ad in the newspaper tomorrow saying, 'Sorry'.I won't actually follow through with that."
He and Galifianakis both came up with the concept of the film.

Two Southern guys."
