madurofan:Friends don't let Jackasses drink and drive
jsnake:These guys are all insane and sick but everything they did made the multi-millionaires so I guess they did something right.
Russ55:I don't know much when it comes to pop culture, but I've heard on more than one occasion that they made relatively little from Jackass. I think Bam and Knoxville made a little, maybe Dunn too, but not anywhere near millions. The other guys made squat. Like a couple hundred bucks a stunt. It's my understanding that mtv is notorious for paying very, very little.
Vulchor: jsnake:These guys are all insane and sick but everything they did made the multi-millionaires so I guess they did something right.Not going after you snake, but this comment (which I have heard from many people in different issues made me think)......Isnt it a sad day, or maybe a sign of the times in this country when just because someone is a millionaire they are "doing something right" or "smart" or the like? It seems our value judgements or statements of people are on the bottom line or how much they earn. A teach is ok, a social worker is ok, a wal mart worker is the butt of a joke....but a guy who makes a ton of tough being stupid or running a profitable business is to be admired. Helping your fellow man and a job with "honor" seems to have gone out the window, save for perhaps the military---who arent paid $hit anyway.
Vulchor:I see your point Cizzle, and I agree----that is their job to attract people to the movie, and they did it right. I just have a hard time praising (to certain degrees) what they do for a living and the money they make vs what a fireman does and what he makes. For a lot less fanfare and "success"

Hot. Maybe Joe can take pics.
Unthought_Known:Not that I wanted him to die or anything, but I don't mourn people that get drunk and then take a joyride at 130mph. If he hit another car and took out an innocent family, then that would have been sad.
