A VIDEO has emerged of actor Jim Carrey singing Radiohead's notoriously depressing song Creep in a New York bar. The star of The Mask and Dumb & Dumber took to the stage of Arlene's Grocery in Manhattan's Lower East Side in front of a cheering audience. "I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo," Carrey sang, in a surprisingly stone-faced performance which lacked the funnyman's trademark slapstick.

While the 49-year-old's singing abilities were questionable, the crowd appears to be enjoying themselves - perhaps thanks to a combination of celebrity mystique and loud backing music.
