I am glad your frustration was vented towards the consumer, and not Knoxville, Steve-0, Bam, etc. These guys are criticized on a regular basis, and I
find no reasoning for it. Look what they have done. They have achieved rockstar popularity, and for what? Making complete asses out of themself.
It is utter brilliance. They beat the snot out of one another, video tape it, sell it, and watch the millions roll in.
They do some stunts that make you scratch your head and go "Why?". But at the same time, there are far worse things on a daily news cast. Child
molestation, rape, murder, etc., are all crimes we are inundated with on a daily basis. It is these hilights that have me cringing every night.
When I watch Jackass, I own both movies, I do nothing but laugh. Some stuff is disturbing, and I may skip those scenes, but the fact these guys have
done what they have done, it is amazing. They don't have to work a 9-5 job, their only responsibility in life is to make sure they have a video
camera near by.
I'm glad you have understood the problem here is "us" and not "them". If we seen them for what they really are, bums who don't want a real job
who inflict pain for pleasure, they would be in the unemployment line or doing their best to actually find a 9-5 job. Mainly due to the fact that the
general public would ask them, "What the hell are you doing?" Rather than the current, "That's Hilarious!".
I am a fan of Jackass, I don't try to hide it. I respect their work, as misguide as it may appear to be. Anyone who can do what they do, and live
the life they do, has to be respected.
