If laughter is the best medicine, Owen Wilson is well on his way to recovery.

The actor showed his comic side again, joining brothers Luke and Andrew along with Jessica Simpson, Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson and Dan Rather for a lawn mower-riding competition in Texas.

The Bad Boy Lawn Mower Race, held at Nelson's homestead near Austin last week, was part of a music-video shoot for his new song, "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore," reports the Austin American-Statesman.

Photos from the shoot, featuring Harrelson and Owen Wilson in cowboy hats and action shots from the race, were posted Friday on a Nelson fan blog. The men rode orange lawn mowers, while Simpson was given a flashy pink one.

It's the latest high-profile appearance by Wilson, 38, who’s recovering from what police called a suicide attempt last August. Earlier in the month, he briefly showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of his movie, The Darjeeling Limited, where his costar Jason Schwartzman said, "Owen is doing very well."
