Fans who attended Wednesday's game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers got a special treat at halftime.

Filming an upcoming movie called Daddy's Home, Will Ferrell showed up at intermission to attempt a half-court shot. Instead, he drilled one of the Pelicans cheerleaders in the face.

Here are a couple of pictures of Ferrell getting "kicked out" after the incident:

The movie will star Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Considering that the last movie they acted in together was The Other Guys, expectations will be pretty high.
