How to Dress Up Like Ricky Bobby For Halloween

What happens when one of the funniest guys on planet Earth gets together with his friends and they make a movie together?  Simple.  You get one hell of a gut buster: Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby.

There aren’t many that are as funny as actor Will Ferrell, and if you've seen any of his films over the years, you’ve seen a bunch of instant classics.

Ferrell’s unique delivery, comic timing, and zeal for making crowds in packed theaters laugh so hard that they nearly choke on their popcorn, has made him a comic hero to many over the last 20 years.  

Yet, what sets Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby apart from some of Ferrell’s other movies, like Old School or Anchorman, for example, is in its use of actors John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron Cohen in supporting roles.

We know the story: Ricky Bobby, a little known NASCAR driver, shoots to fame after winning a series of races.  Eventually, he climbs his way up to the number one spot.  To win, he and Cal Naughton Jr. deliver the infamous “Shake ‘n’ Bake” movie, which allows him to use drag drifts to pass up the track leader.

Of course, living in the limelight can only last so long, though.  With Cal tired of living in Ricky’s shadow, and smug French Formula One driver, Jean Gerard, wanting Ricky’s coveted number one spot, he’s forced to step up his game on the track or risk losing all that he’s worked for.
