I know a great many people, young men mostly, who had a revelation of sorts when they first saw Jim Carrey as one of his most well-known characters: A bizarrely quaffed Hawaiian shirt wearing Floridian man-child who could talk to the animals, if not talk to other adult human beings in any meaningful way. A lot of people my age were kids when they saw Ace Ventura Pet Detective, and for shy, nerdy, awkward adolescents and pre-teens, it was refreshing to see somebody get money and acclaim for doing what they either wished they could do or were getting in trouble for doing at school and at home. Ace Ventura Pet Detective taught a generation to be unapologetically themselves and to take charge of their bodies and if something was different or weird, so what? Make it funny and over the top.
Of course, I do find it telling that an entire generation adopted a man who literally spoke out of his buttocks as their mascot of self-acceptance, but maybe I'm reading too much into it.
This super soft all-cotton black T-Shirt has the iconic character emblazoned on the front, theatrical poster style, so you can own the symbol and share the love with the wild boys (and girls, because ladies always think Jim Carrey is sexy) in your daily life.
