Don’t blink or you might miss this.
An eagle-eyed viewer caught a bug in the 2000 Jim Carrey movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Posting about her note on TikTok, @redcobweb highlights how in one scene Carey loses his yellow contact lenses and appears with wide open natural brown eyes.
“So every time I watch the Grinch I notice this little mistake they made where they either forgot to put his contacts in or they forgot to edit them after that and so on,” she explains in the video, as the movie plays in front of her. Just Jim Carrey’s brown eyes…they’re just there.
A TikTok user pointed out a bug in the 2000 movie The Grinch, revealing that Jim Carrey wasn’t wearing his yellow contact lenses in one scene (left), but they were back in the next (right).
When she reaches the exact point in the movie—which happens after the Grinch has wreaked havoc on the fictional town of Whoville and is about to go home in a shootout—she exclaims, “Right there!” Those are his brown eyes.
After appearing in brown, @redcobweb in the next scene demonstrates Carrie’s return to the Grinch’s infamous yellow.
To date, the TikTok video posted on December 13 has been viewed more than three million times with many commenters expressing surprise that the bug was not discovered earlier.
Ash wrote, “I’ve literally watched this movie 10,000 times and never noticed this!?!”
While Hannah commented, ‘That scene always made me uncomfortable [sic] I look in the eyes and now I know why OMG.
Some TikTokers debated whether Carey’s eye color change was intentional.
“There is a possibility that they may have wanted his pupils to look shocked,” Mooney mused.
Astr0 said: “You literally feel like it was intentional because they look like cartoon schoolboys? I don’t know. Just kinda [sic] It feels right in its place to me.

Carrey’s signature Grinch costume features bright yellow lenses, which are part of the character’s trademark look throughout the film
Special effects make-up artist Kazuhiro Tsuji was responsible for transforming Carrey into the Grinch. It was reported that Curry had a nightmare with the Grinch costume, which included a yak-fur suit, green make-up, facial prostheses and yellow contact lenses, which made him particularly irritable.
Some commenters have also indicated that losing contact lenses may be a cause of discomfort.
Special effects make-up artist Kazuhiro Tsuji, who was responsible for transforming Carrey into the Grinch, previously described how awkward and particularly uncomfortable Carrey’s bulky contact lenses were. The snow on the group kept falling in.
This, along with wGetting a huge yak fur costume, facial prosthetics and layers of green paint took its toll on Carrey and Tsuji described how unpleasant the actor was to work with.
In a 2017 interview with Vulture Tsuji said of Carrey: ‘Once we were on set, he was really mean to everyone and at the beginning of production they couldn’t finish.
“After two weeks, we could only finish three days of the shooting schedule, because all of a sudden he would disappear and when he came back, everything was torn apart. We couldn’t shoot anything.
Three-time Academy Award nominee Tsuji ended up dropping the movie due to stress, but returned on the condition that the production company help him get his green card and that Carrey would be better behaved.
In an effort to help Carrey deal with the “terrifying” experience of being dressed as the Grinch, in which he spent 92 days, producer Brian Grazer enlists a CIA agent who specializes in enduring torture to offer some advice.
Curry said he developed a smoking habit two packs a day after the agent told him, “Eat everything you see.” If you panic and start to spin down, turn on the TV, change the pattern, and have someone you know come over and hit you on the head, punch you in the leg or smoke as hard as you can.
