vidTO Battle: The Informer vs. The Imposter
In this corner, weighing in at seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts in 1993, with 8 million copies sold world wide, owing his bad boy sound to the streets of his troubled upbringing in Malvern (Scarborough), and watching the final edit of this video from within prison... the one, the only... Darren O'Brien aka the Informer himself... Snow!
And in this corner, hailing from Newmarket, Ontario, a high school dropout who made his first appearance at Yuk Yuk's at the age of just 15, moved on to bigger things on the hit US comedy show In Living Color, before becoming perhaps the most prolific Hollywood funny guy ever... the Fire Marshall, the Riddler, Truman... the one, the only.. Jim Carrey!
Who wins this video battle?
Both Snow and Jim Carrey are mamma's boys, and I mean that in the most sensitive, non-derogatory way possible. After Snow made the big bucks the first thing he did was buy his mother a new house. Carrey, upon becoming successful in Los Angeles, moved his folks down there.
