Will Ferrell recently claimed he would "do anything" to get Americans to vote, but would he get ordained?
A soon-to-be-married man from Maryland is coming to collect from the "Wedding Crashers" star in response to the Ron Burgundy-esque video that Ferrell made for the Obama campaign. In the video, Ferrell claimed he would eat human toenails, give someone a tattoo, cook, dance and even punch himself in the face for anyone who votes.
"Whatever it takes, just go to the polls on November 6th and vote," Ferrell said in the clip, which was uploaded Saturday. "Vote Obama; it's a slam dunk."
Nik Reineke from Maryland hopes it will take Ferrell getting ordained. The husband-to-be posted a photo of himself online, which was picked up by Reddit yesterday, in which he held up a sign addressed to Ferrell.
"Will Ferrell, I VOTED today so here is my wish," the sign read. "Become an ordained minister and perform my wedding ceremony on 6/29/13. It will be held in Kensington, MD in a church next to the Mormon Temple. I await your reply."
Reineke included an email address and one addendum, "Or just come give an epic toast..."

In an email to omg! Canada Thursday morning, Reineke said his bride-to-be had no idea about the request and that he had not yet gotten a reply from Ferrell.
"I figure it will take time for him to finally see it, consider it, and respond (if it's even worth his time)," Reineke said.
But Ferrell wouldn't be the first celebrity to get ordained for his fans. Jason Segel got ordained after a couple asked him via Craigslist if he would marry them, and Tori Spelling officiated the wedding of a gay couple at her bed-and-breakfast. Meanwhile, comedian Russell Brand performed a marriage ceremony for a couple at one of his standup shows last year.
