Watch: Jim Carrey Covers Radiohead’s “Creep”


One pretty hilarious dude has become somewhat well-known for covering Radiohead’s “Creep,” but another one? Why not, right? Following Conan O’Brien‘s lead is Jim Carrey, who was performing at Arlene’s Grocery in Manhattan recently. And amidst some comedic bits and another cover — he apparently tackled Smashing Pumpkins’ “Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” too — Carrey and his band performed their own take on “Creep.” The results, as expected, are…interesting. Along with acting like the perpetual goofball he is, he sings Thom Yorke’s lyrics as best he can.

Of course, the verses are delivered in a more conversational tone, but I think we can all agree that Yorke’s talk-y crooning is much better than Carrey’s. Given that I’m a ’90s child and an unapologetic fan of the comedian/actor, I was kind of hoping for more.

Update: Carrey also covered The Smashing Pumpkins “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”
