"A glittering bastion of confusing sports and long movies - and it's definitely not Australia."

Such is the glowing review of Godzone from Anchorman's Brian Fantana on the New Zealand episode of Ron Burgundy's Guide to the World, released by Paramount Pictures in the lead-up to the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. 

In the clip, Fantana disappears to watch 15 hours of the Lord of the Rings movies, based on "Junior" Tolkien's epic tale when he discovers the trilogy was filmed in New Zealand.

Fantana is confused by rugby as a sport, likening it to American Football - "if American Football was played by grizzled, unpadded titans engaging in an almighty battle for supremacy over the elements".

He is clear we're not Australians, though.

"Seriously, do not call them Australian. They hate that," he says.

" I did it once, and I am, to date, not welcome back."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is set for release in New Zealand on December 19.
