Johnny Knoxville's sober warning that these stunts are performed by trained professionals and that you shouldn't try them at home is in direct contrast to the cackling glee with which Knoxville and his merry band of sado masochists throw themselves and each other directly into harm's way. Knoxville's spin was to try each method personally… on himself. The result was so bizarre and inadvertently funny that Tremaine and Knoxville decided to film it. At the same time, Bam Margera was doing something similar with his Camp Kill Yourself crew, attempting wild stunts and filming them.
So does this mean Johnny Knoxville and his band of giddy morons qualify as artists? Probably, yeah. You could waste a lot of ink writing about the artistry, intended or not, of the Jackass oeuvre. The new movie in particular is brimming with subtext, everything from blistering homosexual tension has their ever been a group of straight men who wanted to fuck each other as desperately as these guys? But even more remarkable is how the performers, after over a decade of filmed abuse, have discovered flinching.
By Hannah Parry For Dailymail. Jackass star Steve-O has revealed he went onto a three-hour cocaine binge with Mike Tyson in a party bathroom. Steve-O, who made a name for himself with his outlandish stunts, described crashing a Hollywood Hills party only for the famous boxer to open the door.
The surprisingly complex 'Jackass' standout gives Playboy a look at his new show 'Headset Hotshots'. Indeed, the moment I realize I could be in for a world of hurt is when I find myself seated on a very white, and very leather, couch next to the Jackass alum, with a virtual-reality headset on my face. His words of caution, followed by that signature scratchy laugh, send a chill down my spine. After all, this is the same dude who put a black widow in his mouth for fun, who once made himself shark bait , who once got his butt pierced shut.
