Do not worry, Will Ferrell is not having a very public meltdown: actually he was filming his new movie during the New Orleans Pelicans game, which culminated in him drunkenly throwing a basketball at a cheerleader’s head during a half court shot.

The movie in question is called Daddy’s Home, directed by Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2Sex Drive) and John Morris and co-starring Mark Wahlberg: the log line for the film goes “when a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.”

People at the game then tweeted pictures showing security guards removing the star from the premises.
