Jim Carrey is known for being over-the-top, and when he appeared on David Letterman a few years ago, Letterman got more than expected when he asked how Carrey would spend his New Year's. Not only did Carrey run around the studio, he took to the streets, tearing off his clothes and jumping on top of a cab.

While Jim Carrey can be too much at times, this video works because this is how the rest of us would probably like to celebrate the holiday, we just don't have the guts to do it. That, and because we're not celebrities, we wouldn't get away with it as easily. He just makes it work.
