In the latest in a series of pranks involving Will Ferrell and Pete Carroll, the actor and coach teamed up for Halloween doozy at the end of USC's practice on Thursday.
Ferrell played Captain Compete, who arrived on the scene after saving a man who "fell" from a video platform.
Then while Ferrell was addressing the team afterward, a man who was on fire started running across the field. Ferrell sprinted to the rescue, but arrived after trained personel had safely doused the flames. Nonetheless, Ferrell runs to the Gatorade table and pours a bucket of water on the man.
"Just a little Halloween spirit," Carroll said. "We’re just having some fun."
