Johnny Knoxville and Jackass 3D Stars Go For The Gay
Offended when Vanity Fair suggested the Jackass movies and crew were merely a “smidge gay,” Johnny Knoxville and the boys take their new gross-out stunt comedy Jackass 3D to gay bear bar for a preview screening.
Vanity Fair: So listen, I’m not sure how to broach this subject. There’s a lot of half-naked men in Jackass... Is it possible that Jackass is at least a smidge gay?
Knoxville: I’m offended you just said a smidge!
It’s more than a smidge?
Knoxville: We’re over here sitting on rainbows and you say a smidge.
You’re a gay pride parade waiting to happen?
Knoxville: We’re a gay pride parade that’s happening! And in 3-D!
It’s not just homoerotic tension?
Knoxville: No, man, it’s all about release with us.
Steve-O: We always thought it was funny to force a heterosexual MTV generation to deal with all of our thongs and homoerotic humor. In many ways, all our gay humor has been a humanitarian attack against homophobia. We’ve been trying to rid the world of homophobia for years, and I think gay people really dig it too.
This was way too easy. I had all of these questions designed to lure you into admitting your subconscious desire to f**k each other. But apparently you’re not suppressing anything.
Knoxville: Suppressing?! Wait till I tell the guys you said suppressing! We’re not suppressing anything! We’re over here sitting on d*cks!
