NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - "It's good to be the king."
Those are the words of actor John C. Reilly who reigned as King of Bacchus 2015 on Sunday.
Reilly served as Bacchus XLVI Sunday. He was greeted by massive crows and beautiful weather.
"The hospitality and generosity of everyone in New Orleans especially Clark [Brennan] and his family has been overwhelming and made me feel so special and I really have to say, it is good to be king," Reilly said.
To prepare for his epic ride, Reilly called on a good friend for words of wisdom, former Bacchus king, Will Ferrell.
"Right as I was leaving I texted him, I said, any last words of advice? And he said 'roll with it,' so I've been doing that," Reilly explained.
