Gary Coleman can finally laugh about it all

Gary Coleman sure has become an Internet whipping boy in the past couple of years. But he does kinda bring it on himself, as this commercial he made for illustrates. Not sure if maniacal laughter is the best response to familial woes, but I do know it probably didn’t help public perception of him all that much. Then again, neither did his participation in the California recall election, or that Star Date nonsense, or punching that woman over an autograph, or last week’s disorderly-conduct citation in Utah. Wow, that’s a depressing list of questionable decisions. But he could still salvage his good name by playing himself in Avenue Q.
