Did you know there’s going to be a new Dumb and Dumber movie? Well there is. Hopefully “Dumb and Dumber To” will resolve all the mysteries and unanswered questions of the original. I’ve been waiting 20 years to find out if Sea Bass ever managed to find manly love in that truckstop bathroom.
To promote the new movie, the Farrelly Brothers ran a Vine contest and offered a walk-on role to the winner. Contestants were supposed to recreate their favorite moment from the original film. Apparently there are a lot of hardcore Dumb and Dumber fans out there because the contest got more than 2,000 submissions. Here’s the winning entry:
The mid-90′s are kind of a blur so I have zero recollection of that scene. But here’s the original clip on youtube. I think the contest winner’s butt shake was actually funnier that Jim Carrey’s. And apparently Peter Farrelly felt the same way. Here’s what he said about the winning Vine:
“The guy who won, Trent, it wasn’t that he worked the hardest, it was the one that made us laugh the most. Basically, because he grabbed onto something that nobody else had thought of and it really cracked us up. It’s when Jim Carrey, after he does the scene, walks up the stairs. He had this ridiculous wiggle in his step. I don’t know why he did it. We never thought about it, but when Trent did it, we cracked up. Of all the things to pick! We debated about it, because the other guys had obviously put a lot of time into, and he could have done his in 20 minutes, but we just had to pick that one because it made us laugh the most.”
Pretty much every single entry in this contest is super weird and worth 6 seconds of your time. So if you feel like watching a whole bunch of homemade Dumb and Dumber Vines, head here: http://www.dumbanddumber.com
