The hip-hop superstars used quotes from the ice skating comedy in the song N**gas in Paris, which features on their collaborative album Watch The Throne, and Ferrell admits hearing his voice featured alongside verses by West and Jay-Z is "surreal".
He tells MTV News, "Kanye reached out to me and... I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song (sic)... When I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song."
Ferrell was so impressed by the tune, he wanted to put together a visual piece to accompany the track when the rappers performed the song live.
He says, "We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven't gotten it together."
And now Ferrell is hoping more hip-hop stars will ask to sample dialogue from other movies in his filmography.
He adds, "I think (something from) 'Step Brothers' would be good (to use in a song). Or the Woody Allen movie I did, 'Melinda and Melinda.'"
