‘Jackass’ Star Steve-O Has Been Taped To A Billboard In Los Angeles

Who didn’t love Jackass? The early-2000s MTV phenomenon was a constant, hilarious reminder that life is short, the suburbs are terrible, and your wisdom tooth surgery was fucking clown shoes. So it feels good to see that former Jackass savant Steve-O is keeping that dream alive, by allowing himself to be taped to a billboard in Los Angeles.

In a post on his Instagram, Steve-O wrote, “I’m attached to a billboard right now (swipe to see the whole thing) and want to emphasize that a team of real professionals rigged everything safely. There is zero chance of me falling, and it’s important to me that we not waste any valuable city resources on this. I’m happy to just hang out, and really want the world to know about this project I worked so hard on. It’s called Gnarly and, If you’re over 18, check it out at steveo.com! Thanks!”

Hey, it’s no crazier than everything else going on in America right now.

You can digitally purchase Steve-O’s Gnarly at his website.

Rumor is that Jackass 4 comes out July 2, 2021, but one wouldn’t be surprised if that date gets moved. The fact that it’s being made at all is insane, given that early on Steve-O said it would never happen. In an exclusive interview with Loudwire, the stuntman shared that he felt that costar Johnny Knoxville was the one who wasn’t quite on board, adding that it was “up to him.”

“You don’t want to be clickbait,” he said, and later added, “I just felt that Knoxville, for some reason, just wasn’t up for it. And then there’s the health of certain people, which I think is a concern as well. And of course, there’s our age! Maybe the ship has sailed, but I can’t say with certainty that I feel that way anymore. I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I do know we’re approaching the 20-year anniversary of when Jackass first came out on MTV,  and I do know that there’s an urge, an idea, to commemorate that anniversary in some way. It could be small, it could be big.”
