With MTV' favorite band of jackasses back in theaters with the upcoming
Jackass: Number Two, we thought we'd take a look at the 10 best moments from the show and the first film. We've embedded the videos so you can actually see and hear the bones being broken. Oh, and don't try this at home.
10) Paper Cuts
Like most hotel parties, the Jackass
crowd decided to sit around, drink some beers and torture each other in the most excruciating way imaginable. At the expense of an extra-crisp oversized envelope, Johnny Knoxville gets paper cuts in the webbing of his hands and his feet. If there is ever doubt, this sketch will prove to any naysayer that the
guys are in fact, certifiably insane.Highlight:
Watching Steve-O take a paper cut on the edge of the mouth should be instituted as a form of torture in Third World countries.
9) Public Boner
This would be just like sophomore year geometry class, only instead of being painfully aware and ashamed of your boner, you were completely oblivious of it and liked using it for tactile purposes. Johnny Knoxville throws on some loose-fitting mesh basketball shorts, straps on a rubber dildo and goes to town.Highlight:
Knoxville rubbing his artificial junk all over a perplexed mechanic who pleads, "Take it easy my friend. No, no, no, no, take it easy!"
8) Hit By a Car
Pretty self explanatory; Johnny Knoxville gets bulldozed by a car. While it' standard fare to see these guys hurt themselves, it' important to keep in mind while you're watching this that well, that' a guy getting hit by a fucking car.Highlight:
"Hi, I'm Johnny Knoxville and I'm going to get hit by a car real soon." That or the vicious tumbleweed dive Knoxville takes after getting train-wrecked by the oncoming car.
7) Knoxville Self Defense Test
Much of this sequence of clips were filmed before Jackass
was even on TV. At this point, the show was just Knoxville, his buddy and his video camera, which makes this clip all the more insane. He inflicts himself with pepper spray, a stun gun, a tazer and a .38 Smith and Wesson. All that' missing from Knoxville' arsenal is some sort of shoulder-launched missile.
During self-defense test No. 2: stun gun, Knoxville hoists an American flag, roars, "CHARGE!!!!" and barrels right into the current of a 120,000 volt stun gun. His convulsing afterwards seems pretty authentic.
6) Cup Test
team tries everything they can to annihilate Knoxville' athletic supporter and his manhood. From issuing little kids free passes on Knoxville' nuts to blasting croquet balls at his family jewels, no weapon is spared in attempting to crack and destroy the impenetrable life-force that is a BIKE jock strap.
