Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and Jimmy Fallon goof with fake arms in a fake Canadian soap opera

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were on The Tonight Show on Tuesday night to promote their new film, Dumb and Dumber To. Instead of the normal roll-clip-and-let's-talk routine, Jimmy Fallon and the duo created an elaborate backstory about a fictional Canadian soap opera (complete with opening credits) they worked on in the 1990s. Things only got stranger when the three of them acted out a clip from Jacob's Patient, gamely adhering to the odd contractual tick that nobody could use their real arms. Leno would never have gone for this. --Peter Weber
