In their last web video, the Rick Perry campaign compared Bill White's campaign to comedian Jerry Seinfeld's "show about nothing."  This time, White's getting the Jim Carrey treatment.

A new web video released by the Perry camp today makes use of Carrey's 1997 hit comedy "Liar Liar," in which promise-breaking character Fletcher Reede (Carrey) is magically forced to tell only the truth — cue the comedic hijinks. 

The campaign clip specifically targets an old claim by White that he did not make money on a failed business venture, Frontera Resources.  It was recently revealed that White made more than one million dollars when the company went public.

Here's the video:
