The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was a huge, epic flop. How on earth is that possible? Probably because it looked awful. No one likes magicians. And the joke of mocking a David Blaine-type magician is probably outdated by at least five years. So either while out promoting it, or trying to erase it from people’s memories, Jim Carrey did something he hasn’t done in a long, long time. He tried to be genuinely amusing.
And he did this by doing a Funny or Die video mocking an old episode of Hee Haw, gun enthusiasts, country western music and Charlton Heston all at the same time. I guess some people are pissed by this video because they think it he’s being disrespectful to gun owners and they’re trying to make it into a controversy. But they’re forgetting that Jim Carrey hasn’t been controversial since he agreed to do a movie called Mr. Popper’s Penguins alongside cgi birds.
