Ouch! At an NBA game in New Orleans, Will Ferrell smacked a cheerleader in the face with a basketball. Click inside to WATCH!

Will Ferrell, 47, is known for his hilarious antics, but this one might take the cake. While filming a movie with Mark Wahlberg, 43, the actor made his way onto the basketball court and threw a ball directly at a cheerleader — knocking her flat on her behind. Yikes!

Will Ferrell Clocks Cheerleader In The Face With Basketball

Okay, that looks like it hurt.

On Wednesday night, Jan. 21, in New Orleans, Louisiana, there were two A-list stars hanging out at the Pelicans game: Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg!

The two stars are in town to film their new movie, Daddy’s Home, and some of the scenes were shot during the live basketball game which just so happened to be against the Los Angeles Lakers.

However, the audience definitely didn’t expect to see Will assault a cheerleader with a basketball.

At one point during the game, Will was invited onto the court to shoot the ball.

However, he was a little sloppy in his throw, and instead ended up hitting a cheerleader directly in the face — from just about two or three feet away. Ow!

There’s no word yet on whether or not the cheerleader was a part of the film, but it’s probably safe to assume that she was — and hopefully the basketball he used wasn’t real, either.

Check out the video below to see what happened, but remember — it’s all for Will and Mark’s new movie!
