Will Ferrell, Manny Pacquiao Cover John Lennon's 'Imagine'

Comedian Will Ferrell and Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao celebrated John Lennon's legacy by singing "Imagine" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" last night (Nov. 1).

Ferrell gazes into the crowd while singing the line, "Imagine there's no heaven," like a Pentecostal preacher decked out in an all-white suit.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao messes up one of the lyrics by saying "country" instead of "countries." Ferrell continues to act as Pacquiao's hype man while he sings his part, bringing laughs from the crowd. The cover is so earnestly bad it's hilarious.

It's hard to "Imagine" one of the greatest boxers in the world singing a song about peace with Will Ferrell, but let's hope Pacquiao takes a different direction when he's in the ring with Antonio Margarito on Nov. 13.
