The iconic line repeated by Truman (#JimCarrey ) "Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!" is included in the lyrics of #DivinaCommedia by the Korean Artist Ji-Yong Kwon (a.k.a G-Dragon) in his self titled album KWON JI YONG, which explains the celebrity life and how suffocating it can be. ...
