The late Charlton Heston might be rolling in his grave today thanks to Jim Carrey, who debuted a new satirical song about gun enthusiasts appropriately titled, "Cold Dead Hand."
The Funny Or Die music video features Carrey and alt-rock band Eels as "Lonesome Earl And The Clutterbusters," a country band on a TV show set inspired by the classic variety show, "Hee Haw." Carrey also portrays the aforementioned Heston, who is continuously mocked throughout the song for his NRA spokesman-ship. Carrey even implies that Heston and all other gun enthusiasts buy weapons to compensate for having, um, "diminished" sexual organs.
Carrey, who has openly supported gun control, said in a release: “I find the gun problem frustrating and ‘Cold Dead Hand’ is my fun little way of expressing that frustration."
The comedian and actor sparked ire from conservatives back in February after he tweeted that anyone who would buy an assault rifle after the Newton massacre, "has very little left in their body or soul worth protecting."
Watch the music video for "Cold Dead Hand" above. The song is also now available on iTunes.
