Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis aren't actually running for office, but in a case of life imitating art in the name of promoting said art, the comedy duo are conducting an old fashioned "whistle stop" tour across the country.

Ferrell and Galifianakis, who are portraying rival candidates in the upcoming film The Campaign, visited St. Louis on Tuesday and were feted like actual state dignitaries as Mayor Francis Slay declared it "Will and Zach Day" in the city. The actors were given jerseys by the St. Louis Blues as well as other gifts from the Rams and Cardinals.

Here, Blues mascot Louie mugs for the camera alongside Ferrell, Galifianakis and broadcaster Joe Buck.
