warning do not attempt any of the stunts you are about to see hi i am
knoxvilleand i am breaking down all the injuries of my
careerhow delicious i am
knoxvilleunited states of america i will do a little higher calling self defense team. I wrote an article in which I tried four different types of self defense equipment on myself. Pepper spray is still one of the most painful things I have ever endured. The pepper spray is continuous hell for 15 or 20 minutes it's like someone started a fire in your eye and trying to put it out with gasoline the stun gun when it hits you you fall but in order to hit someone with it you are within reach your hand you can lift up pretty much immediately from a stun gun a taser i dont recommend you feel the electric shock either but your muscles just give out and turn into a noodle and you fall but i did that twice the first time i was shirtless you know both spike stuff has to go in to connect the cir cut and just standing there only one went in and if that happens if they were coming at you they'll keep coming at you but pepper spray can go like 15 feet and they're worthless for at least 20 minutes yeah hi i'm johnny knoxville welcome to jackass we did three seasons of jackass on tv and it all happened so fast.
I went from making 10 cents a word writing for magazines and acting and commercials for Bud Light or whatever commercial to being on the cover of The Rolling Stone and that's a pretty big jump and it took me a bit to get used to my name is Johnny Knoxville and today I'm going to jump the LA River I think we filmed the wheelie jump for the pilot of Jackass the tv show you know I was going to jump the LA River which sounds fantastic actually it's like it's a five foot section of the LA river and I am very uncoordinated and ended up with a broken ankle when I abruptly left the TV show.
MTV was a bit stunned by that. I hadn't come back to announce any contracts and I didn't know that I really care too, so there's a lot of back and forth about what happens next and that's where the first movie came from. I'm Johnny Knoxville and I'm going to grind this rail. i think a movie version of the tv show didn't make sense to me because i was thinking why would they make the actors do that and then spiker jeff says no it's like a nadya version of what we did on tv so that made sense
everyone i'm johnny knoxville and i'm a vain cutter today we're going to do some boxing lol Butterbean is really strong and has such a wonderful spirit and so fun all day and polite will have a fight at the swap meet as soon as he gets he put on the gloves i told him something he just looked at me like he didn't even really know me he changed it when he put the gloves on oh well we need footage someone ring the bell let's get this over with that was twisted because he knocked me out on my feet look at the pictures he hits me and then i fell completely and hit my head on the concrete floors and my head just slipped off like a melon it sounds like he's sleeping his It sounds like I'm snoring but my doctor told me I was trying to swallow my tongue at the time which you know, that's never a good thing Butterbean, okay, I was part of the wild boys and I would go out filming with them sometimes when I was filming with the wild boys, I think we're in Russia, I was just enjoying getting footage to the point where Jeff pushed me aside and says, if you're going to try so hard for the wild boys, why don't we make another movie? budget oh yeah the rocket yeah we hired a part time rocket scientist and built one of those Acme rockets like you see in the Roadrunner cartoons there were eight to twelve foot long metal rods , capsule metal rockets in the device that looks like a cartoon. that we built and when we turned it on it blew up and all these eight foot long metal rods went flying in
everydirection, one ripped a hole in the rocket right next to my ribs over that big one 300 yards back and went between the ears of cack and Scott Manning and I would have decapitated them I've been wrapper image hello I'm johnny Knoxville and I'm about to flip this bike we were filming Matt Hoffman's tribute to Evel Knievel I wasn't meant to do a stunt that's why I got to Oklahoma and everyone was having a lot of fun and I decided that I want to have some fun too and I decided to try to ride a motorcycle, but I can't ride a motorcycle that well.
Sometimes when people explain to me how to do something before the stunts I don't listen because I just want to do the stunts whatever you do don't get rid of the bike right away because if you go like that and get rid of the bike then rises 40 feet into the air and lands on top of you, yeah yeah I was right I tried three or four. times each time it seems like I was less engaged and on the fourth time I got to the bottom of the ramp I let go of the bike it launches twenty something feet in the air and I fall on my back and my knees are behind my ears like when I like myself and just at that moment the bike goes down and
breaksmy handlebars in my crotch and that was a big impact but i felt like i was i stood up and i felt like i was peeing every time my heart beat blood i shot the tip of my penis and I walked up to the doctor on the set and I said, are you okay?
Yeah, he said something, we have to get you to the hospital right now because you know you may be bleeding internally. BP I answered the only body part that means anything to me yeah that was oh it was a freak
injuryyou always get footage when you shoot with Bulls people they say oh we're red around him and Bulls don't they give a on the red color they only care about movement and if something moves they try to kill i Thank God yes an exit point. I got hurt more than any movie I've ever done. Four concussions.
They broke my hand. I was trying to perfect that trick for a while because I kept wanting to go further and faster. The stuntman traveled about 20 feet in the air he was about six feet off the ground and when he was doing it it looked like he was kicking his feet and rolling off of him so that's something I didn't want to do I just wanted to let my feet will hit and receive it on the shoulder. I didn't think what would follow my shoulder and that's my face so feet shoulder face like that I went to the ER they checked me out I got home some blood on my notes so I blew my nose and when I blew my nose my left eye popped out of its socket and the more it blew the further it was coming and that kind of scared me and I opened my eye again I went in and called the executive producer and told him it might look like I have to go back to the hospital I just got an eye out he's like oh I'm like John I just got an eye out he says I'll be there five days later I was dating Pontes We were coming back from a bar and he says something funny and at that moment the doctor said you can't sneeze Or blow your nose for six weeks, but for some reason tonight I'll blame the whiskey when I say something funny.
I went and was held by blue inigo not again that time I was wearing a pirate patch so I just pushed the patch back on and saw double but it wasn't as bad as the first time but all over the last few three days of the movie can only film the right side of my face because my left side looked like I look like a Picasso painting it's just an
injuryyou didn't expect it's like when I broke my penis I was I didn't expect it to be worth it yeah yeah , it was just a long way to get to me. breaking my penis
