Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder…
The television personality Steve-O decided to hang out on a billboard in L.A today—of course, he would. He was taped to a signboard on North Cahuenga Boulevard in LA. in a bold attempt to promote his new stream-only comedy special, Gnarly. While plans for the Jackass to reunite and film Jackass 4 may have been rudely halted by COVID-19, the star hasn’t let a pandemic get in the way of pulling his usual stunts.
As expected, crowds swarmed to see the spectacle and he certainly caught the attention of the media. Obviously, he kept his arms free to get some coverage for his own account too, posting a selfie with a caption that reads:
“I’m attached to a billboard right now (swipe to see the whole thing) and want to emphasize that a team of real professionals rigged everything safely. There is zero chance of me falling, and it’s important to me that we not waste any valuable city resources on this.”
We’re pretty sure most people were more concerned about him dropping his phone but we’re happy it was all safe.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t safe enough to get the fire department’s approval. A team of firefighters promptly interrupted the promotional performance, ripping Steve-O off the advertisement and bringing him down to safety. Well, at least he won’t need to worrying about waxing for the rest of the summer.
