Jon Gosselin has been on the receiving end of more than his fair share of jokes, but today, he got in on the joke. Thanks to the fine people at FunnyorDie.com -- and to Jon's willingness to have a sense of humor about himself -- we can now gaze upon one of the funniest videos in recent memory.
The two-minute, self-parodying clip begins with Jon sitting on a living room sofa and pledging his desire, confessional-video-style, to "go back to the normal, simple life" he used to have.
"People always say to me, 'Jon, you can't go back.' But I am going to go back, I'm gonna learn from my mistakes," Jon tells the camera. "And be the righteous person I can be."
Cut to: Jon dumping all of his hair gels, sprays and sundry products he presumably uses to create his signature hair style. He deletes Michael Lohan's contact information from his phone. He says goodbye to a bikini-clad blonde. He changes into a plain, pastel-colored polo shirt, packs up all his Ed Hardy gear and returns it to the Christian Audigier store. Finally, he stops by what appears to be the Ivy or another Hollywood paparazzi hotspot, unrecognized by the cameramen who are stalking Jon Gosselin. "Tell him I said goodbye," he says.
Oh, and did we mention it's all set to Cher's classic single "If I Could Turn Back Time?"
We're the first to admit we're not Jon's biggest fans. But no matter how you feel about him, you have to applaud his ability to make fun of himself, right?
Jon's video is not the first time we've seen a sense of humor from the Gosselin clan. Last month, Jay Leno hosted a video of Kate Gosselin jokingly freaking out on the paps. So who was funnier? Our vote goes to Kate, hands down.
Who's spoof do you think is funnier, Jon or Kate's? Chime in below!
