- Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite as their Step Brothers characters “Prestige Worldwide” to perform “Boats ‘N Hoes” with Snoop Dogg at the Best Night of Your Life 2 benefit concert in Los Angeles
- Reilly wishes Snoop Dogg a happy 52nd birthday during the performance
- Step Brothers, despite mixed reviews, has become one of Will Ferrell’s most beloved comedies
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, the duo behind comedic slackers “Prestige Worldwide” from Step Brothers, have joined forces again. This time, they teamed up with legendary rapper Snoop Dogg to perform the track “Boats ‘N Hoes” at a benefit concert in LA named Best Night of Your Life 2. The song first gained popularity when it appeared in the 2008 comedy featuring Ferrell and Reilly portraying two grown men forced to live together when their parents married. Footage from the concert can be seen on CNN and social media.
During the performance, Reilly broke character to address the crowd and wish Snoop Dogg a happy 52nd birthday. He announced, “Yesterday was a very special day…It was Mr. Snoop Dogg’s birthday. We’re about to sing happy birthday to the greatest rapper in the world!”
Will Ferrell has been making public appearances lately, even showcasing his DJ skills at a University of Southern California frat party. Dressed in a cap and sunglasses, Ferrell played a song sampling his character Chazz Michael Michaels from Blades Of Glory, accompanied by some “dad dance” moves.
Step Brothers, released in 2008 and directed by Adam McKay, stars Ferrell and Reilly as Brennan Huff and Dale Doback, two unemployed men who still live with their parents. The story follows the chaos that ensues when Brennan’s mother marries Dale’s father and the two are forced to cohabit. Despite mixed reviews, the film went on to become one of Ferrell’s most well-loved comedies, largely thanks to the popularity of the song “Boats ‘N Hoes” which has garnered millions of views on YouTube and spawned various merchandise.
Despite clamors for a sequel, John C. Reilly admitted in 2020 that the pressure may be too high. Reilly, Ferrell, and director Adam McKay are hesitant to attempt another installment without a guarantee that they could improve on the original. He stated, “I don’t know, I think like a lot of artists all three of us kind of felt like, ‘Unless we were really sure that we could do a better version or improve on what it is, let’s leave it alone. Sequels are hard to pull off.’
While Step Brothers 2 may never materialize, it is comforting to know that “Prestige Worldwide” is still going strong.
