    Will Ferrell has been hitting audiences with some shock and awe.

    A giant penis has been chasing audience members from Will Ferrell's Broadway show.

    At least a half-dozen attendees of "You're Welcome America: A Final Night With George W. Bush," have fled the theater, driven away by a massive photo of what is presented as the ex-president's penis, the New York Times reports .

    "That’s what I call shock and awe, right there," Ferrell-as-Bush says as the giant organ hangs behind him.

    Obviously, the penis in question does not actually belong to Bush.

    "It's an anonymous but age-appropriate public domain Internet penis," the play's director, Adam McKay, told the Times. "We went on the Web and got a penis."

    "What I do know is that the photo gets one of the great shrieks of delight from the audience, and it's also the one moment that is followed by people walking out," added McKay.
