A giant sign featuring Will Ferrell shouting 'Go Kings, Go!' taunted New Yorkers on Friday


There's trolling, and then there's trolling.

This brilliant piece of Friday evening intimidation definitely fell into the latter category, as a giant sign featured a jumbo Will Ferrell silently exhorting the masses outside New York's Madison Square Garden to cheer for the Los Angeles Kings.

The billboard did not last long, notes SBNation.com, but you've got to give credit to the Kings (or a diehard Kings fan) for going big ahead of tonight's Game 2 in Los Angeles.

And for the record: The billboard was actually repurposed from a video Ferrell recorded during the Kings' 2012 run toward the Stanley Cup — watch the original (very loud) version, below. --Sarah Eberspacher
