The first trailer for Jackass 3D has arrived and, it’s a trailer for another Jackass movie. By now you should know what you’re getting.
New this time around is the 3D element which, by all accounts, the Jackass boys plan to milk for all it’s worth. This won’t be some subtle and artistic use of the format, even in the movie’s 2D trailer below, you’ll easily see that they plan on shooting, farting, and rocketing as many things straight at the camera and out over the audience as possible. This is Jackass. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Here’s the Jackass 3D trailer, meet me afterwards for an observation:
Here’s something odd. Not all of the stunts in the trailer are entirely original. In fact, at least one of them has been routinely done by little girls on YouTube. You probably remember this scene from the trailer:
If you search YouTube for “flying girl bounce” you’ll find about a dozen videos of pretty much the identical stunt being pulled off rather routinely by teenage girls, some of them far more spectacularly than as done by the Jackass boys in the trailer. Here’s a few examples:
Apparently this thing is a fairly standard attraction at summer camps for teens around the world. But Knoxville and the boys, sensing a laugh opportunity, have added paintball to it. That's Jackass innovation at work.
