Kris Humphries uses Kim Kardashian divorce, reputation for comedy

The reputation came from this.

Mrs. Carter – Kris Humphries is taking a break from basketball, and is now busy trying to make you laugh.

Following his divorce from Kim Kardashian (which is still waiting to be finalized), the New Jersey Nets basketball star is making headlines Friday with a new viral video from Funny or Die that features himself working with a team to re-brand his image — which ended up simply becoming a way for them to try and exploit Kris for being one of the most-hated players in the NBA (and it’s all due to his reality TV lifestyle).

While Kris saves most of the actual comedy in the video to the actors playing the talent agents, it is at least nice to see him having a sense of humor about the whole ordeal — including a rather open shot he takes at Kanye West by wearing a set of sunglasses that the rapper (and new boyfriend to Kim) made famous a few years back. It ultimately doesn’t look like it is meant to be anything more than just cheeky fun, and we actually wish that we were getting the opportunity to see more of this from Kim and everyone associated with these tabloid headlines.

Do you think Kris looks better or worse after doing this? You can check out the video below, but be warned that it contains strong language.
