Just sit back, relax, and enjoy all the times these brave souls suffered for our amusement. And cross your fingers that someday they will do it again. Oh and if you are worried about such things, be advised that there is some salty language in these clips. For example, witness the nightmares that ensue when the crew gets their hands on some extremely potent glue, and then use it to affix their bodies together and then pull them apart. You will never forget the sound it makes.
Controversy[ edit ] At the time of its first broadcast in , Jackass frequently featured warnings and disclaimers noting that the stunts performed were very dangerous and should not be imitated. Such warnings not only appeared before and after each program and after each commercial break, but also in a "crawl" that ran along the bottom of the screen during some especially risky stunts, as well as showing their "skull and crutches" logo at the bottom right of the screen to symbolize the stunt performed as risky. Nevertheless, the program has been blamed for a number of deaths and injuries involving teens and children recreating the stunts. Jack Ass, whose birth name was Bob Craft, changed his name in to raise awareness for drunk driving, after his brother and friend both died in a car accident.
For its third installment in the franchise, this time in mind-blowing 3D, Knoxville has teamed up yet again with Jeff Tremaine and Spike Jonze, along with all of his usual cohorts, to bring their personal aesthetic, brand of danger and sick humor to various stunts and skits that risk their lives on a regular basis. Check out what they had to say after the jump. Johnny, you went through some torturous stuff yourself in this film.
