Ignore, then marvel

Never mind Jim Carrey's comments on socialism, check out his sick jacket and fade!
10 September 2018

Jim Carrey went on Real Time with Bill Maher last Friday, and he went and said some things again, mainly:

“We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything.

“We have to stop apologizing.”

The comedian, whose new dark-comedy series Kidding is currently airing in the US, has a history of saying things that could be perceived as controversial or somewhat outlandish. Earlier this year, he urged his social media followers to boycott Facebook because of Russian election-meddling and recently told shocked interviewers that he never existed.

It came to very public head during a bizarre interview he gave at the Venice film festival back in 2017, where he was quoted as saying “I don’t believe in icons. I don’t believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personality, beyond invention and disguise. I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself. And I don’t care.” 

He is also widely vocal about what he perceives as “dubious” vaccine practices in the US:

Do Carrey’s increasingly frequent, unpredictable outbursts suggest that perhaps it’s time to stop analysing everything he does in the real world, and simply take his work on its own merits, separating Carrey the outspoken campaigner from the comedy funny-man?

But then again, have you seen this jacket and fade that he’s got?

You should get a jacket like that, and also the way that his hair starts thicker at the top, but then gradually gets shorter as it moves down his head, that’s sick. Jim Carrey looked like a hermit last year, but now he’s got a cool new yellow jacket, and - no jokes - you should get one, too. Maybe a leather one might be taking it a bit far for most people, but just look at these little numbers:

Yellow shower resistant coach jacket by J by JASPER CONRAN (£19.50)

Quilted jacket with high neck by RESERVED (£39.99)

Yellow coat by LEVI’S® MADE & CRAFTED X POGGY SACK (£312.90)

JAY Leather jacket by TIGER OF SWEDEN JEANS (£599.99)

Core yellow jacket by WEEKDAY (£55)

Jacket by RAINS (£75)

Get a yellow jacket, basically. Ignore Carrey’s comments about socialism, and just get a sick new yellow jacket and then if you want, a fade, too. Simply walk into any hairdressers and shout “Gimme dat Carrey fade, baby” and then refrain - if you can manage it - from harping on about how great you think socialism is for the duration of the cut. And make sure you hang up your banging yellow jacket on the rack because otherwise you’ll get hair all over the collar.

Anyway, enjoy. You look great. Both you, reading this, once you’ve bought a yellow jacket, and also you, Jim Carrey.
