Larry the Cable Guy Denies His Jar Jar Binks-ness

Feel free to read the Larry The Cable Guy A.V. Club Interview in it's entirety to get an in-depth look at Dan Whitney's influences, new History Channel show Only In America and thoughts on dropping character. Or you can read this pull quote about his Cars 2 character: "The dumbest statement I read this year was, 'Congratulations, Pixar, [Cars 2 character] Mater is your Jar Jar Binks.' I just want to confront the guy and go, 'Yeah, did Jar Jar Binks make $10 million of merchandise sales?'” Either way, we can all agree on one thing: both Cars 2 and The Phantom Menace made more money than God himself.

    Well, The Phantom Menance was projected to make nearly $2 billion in merchandise sales, so you have to assume at least 1/200th of that was because of/for Jar Jar Binks. Personally, I spent my $27 on a Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum action figure.

    I have a Jar Jar Binks toothbrush I bought at a dollar store when I lost my luggage. THERE! I said it!

      @Caroline Anderson Um, I'm jealous. Because nothing scrapes off teeth gunk better than a Gungan.
