In 2009, Gary starred in a zany and badly criticised “Borat” meets “Jackass” shockumentary film called Midgets vs. Mascots. It was his last feature film appearance.
Midgets vs. Mascots is a straight-to-DVD video where 5 little people and 5 mascots battle for $1 million apiece in competitions like “how few insults does it take to get punched in a bar”, and “alligator wrestling”.
Gary, leading the littles as himself, plays a comedic freight train (or train wreck) as he gets into actual fist fights with mascots, coaches and even former NBA player Scottie Pippen.
Like “Borat”, much of the film is shot “guerilla improv” as they surprise unsuspecting bystanders when the teams crash restaurants, bars and neighborhoods during outrageous competitions.
In this scene, Gary is offered a watermelon by a white guy and he wasn’t pleased. Gary attacked the man and eventually took him down. Looks real but was semi-staged.
