A brave, stupid young man in Rayong, Thailand “wanted to imitate Jackass,” Tomo News Today reports, so he had some friends pull a nest of fire ants off a tree and shake those angry little fuckers directly into his underpants. The background music is gnarly, but not gnarly enough to erase the sound of his infinite screams.
If you've spent most of Game of Thrones waiting for the moment when Sansa Stark finally gets to deliver a devastating kick to a Lannister or Frey's family jewels, please enjoy this. It might be as close as we ever get.
Police have released the findings from their investigation into the violent, fiery death by car crash of Jackass star Ryan Dunn and passenger Zachary Hartwell: Dunn, who was driving, had a blood alcohol content was 0.196, more than double Pennsylvania's legal limit of 0.08. His Porsche was traveling between 132 and 140MPH at the time of the crash. [TMZ, image via Getty]
So Roger Ebert went and posted that stupid tweet this morning about Ryan Dunn's death, "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive," which he is still standing behind, but really, just shut up Roger Ebert? Nothing was conclusive at the time of the tweet, friends and fans were still in mortal shock over the awful news, and if I wanted lectures about the perils of drunk driving, which I do not, I wouldn't seek them out from a movie critic? That tweet just summed up everything that's annoying about Twitter to me. People wanting to be heard, me not wanting to hear them. (And stop contributing New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest entries, already! You got your framed trophy and bragging rights. How much validation of one's pithiness can one man possibly need?)
For all you Jackass fans out there, a Jackass 3.5 will be coming out April 1st, and here is the first official trailer. It's 85 minutes of absurd, disgusting, and hilarious extra footage compressed for a .5 version.
In this promo for VH1's Critic's Choice Awards, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam, and the rest of the "Jackass" crew take on everyone's favorite mindbending, hallway-shifting summer blockbuster. Not surprisingly, Steve-O's dreamscape involves golf carts, porn stars, and porta-potties.
Its been 10 years since Jackass premiered and the formula has remained unchanged: semi-refined slapstick. Not much differs in the first trailer for the third installment of the series, but that doesn't mean the result is any less hilarious.
Here's a trailer for the upcoming Jackass 3D, the new James Ivory picture starring Maggie Smith and Jim Broadbent. Hm? Wait, no, sorry. It's the threequel (ugh) in the Johnny Knoxville series about man-boys hurting themselves. And it's in 3D!
