Jean Dujardin's 'Farce Attaque' Video: 'The Artist' Star Features In Comedic Rambo Sketch From 1998 (VIDEO)

Honestly, I don't really know what's going on in this clip (two years of French classes: money well spent) other than that Jean Dujardin, your likely future Best Actor winner, is running through the jungle like he's Rambo. I'm starting to get the impression that Dujardin may have been holding out when he did that Funny or Die parody of all of the action movies that he was now being offered.

The 1998 clip, from a French television series called "Farce Attaque," shows Dujardin in predicaments ranging from being whipped while tied to a tree to, well, yes, something involving a fart joke. Enjoy, America.
