A POLICE Scotland appeal has been inundated with hilarious comments after social media users noticed their suspect looks like Jim Carrey’s Dumb and Dumber character.
Hundreds of Facebook users have responded to the appeal showing a CCTV image of a man who police believe was involved in a serious assault in Falkirk last year.
The incident resulted in the victim being hospitalised after being punched in the face.
But the appeal appears to have backfired and instead of attracting useful information from the public – most have just taken to the post to comment to mock the mans “bowl cut”.
Dozens of users said that the man was a spitting image of Lloyd Christmas – Jim Carrey’s iconic character in the Dumb and Dumber films.
While others said he looked more like Spock, Still Game’s Methadone Mick and even Kim Jung Un.
Charmaine Crossley said: “It’s one of the pair from Dumb and Dumber ain’t it? I’d recognise that hair anywhere.”
Keith Cassells asked: “Lloyd Christmas?”
Lynnette Dargie added: “Dumb and dumber. What’s Jim Carrey doing in Falkirk?”
Alex Conboy commented: “Dumb and Dumber on steroids.”
While Christopher Graham said: “Needing lifted for that haircut.”
And David Nicholson added: “Find the barber more like, that’s a bigger crime.”
Other users couldn’t resist posting gifs and images from Dumb and Dumber in the comments too.
The Forth Valley Police Division posted the picture of the man to their Facebook page yesterday (wed) , and it has been shared over 860 times and gathered hundreds of comments.
The appeal read: “We have today released a CCTV image of a man we wish to trace as part of an ongoing investigation into a serious assault.
“The incident happened at around 12.15am on Sunday 3rd December 2017 in the Princes Street area of Falkirk, near to the junction with Park Street.
“A 27-year-old man was punched to the face, sustaining serious facial injuries which required hospital treatment.
“Officers are eager to trace the man pictured who they believe may be able to help with their investigations.
“He is described as white, aged around 20-years-old, around 6ft tall and was wearing a grey Fred Perry top with a blue and red trim. He had dark coloured hair which was shaven at the sides and longer on top.”
Detective Constable Carolyn Alexander, from Falkirk CID, said: “This was a violent and unprovoked attack and we are keen to trace the man pictured.
“I would ask anyone who recognises him and can help us trace is current whereabouts to get in touch.
“Equally if the man pictured sees this appeal we would urge him to contact officers as soon as possible.”
