  • I think Jackass is unintentionally deep, like many unintentional phenomenons it's a mirror, the statements highlighted by some of the quotes about how jackass grew out of late 20th century suburban culture are very on point, but they miss one key thing; none of the Jackasses set out to make those points, they set out to have fun and entertain people, nothing more. That their chosen method of entertaining strikes such a deep chord is not a result of their own deep forethought but in fact evidence of the zeitgeist that is running through all of us that they've been tapping into.

  • Its Deep. Jackass is about have a fun time acting dumb and laughing with your friends and pulling pranks. Everyone is a manchild in their own way. Dave England is in his 50s and still skateboard/snowbards shares his antics with his kids. You can cherish those fun moments while they last, because friends comes and goes, and sometimes not in a good way just like Bam's friend, Ryan Dunn.

  • I wrote my college senior thesis on Jackass and the dynamics of comedy and performative (non-simulated) pain as it relates to white male psychology! This was some amazing commentary! We definitely would not have the same level of KGworldr/Instagram "Savage" influencer culture today if the Jackasses had not turned on-camera personal debasement not only into a profitable brand, but an effective method of homosocial bonding. I argue that the types of behavior exhibited on this program illuminate socioeconomic tensions between the working-class young white man and the “feminized” surrounding world he unwittingly finds himself a part of, struggling (perhaps unconsciously) to both decry and maintain his sense of privilege. In short, IT'S DEEP!

  • Brilliantly deep! Also raises the question of choice! From an existentialist point of view, if we agree that our existence don't really have any meaning, what avoids us to make all those crazy things?! Social constructs! Jackass raises the question of the power of decision by erasing the "it is not morally right, it is too dangerous, it is shamefull... " within the group of people agreeing on the overall joke. This group reflects then to us, the viewers a "control free" view or way of life! It is somehow an extreme way of letting go by the use of humour.

  • 1:46 Not only did the show get movies, the antics of the show also bled into another show called "The Nitro Circus" which starred Travis Pastrana's crew and Johnny Knoxville. Similar dangerous and ridiculous antics ensued as the entire crew performed stunts ranging from a mock deer hunter arcade with a crew member getting blasted by paintballs to backflipping a monster truck.

By the way i appreciate how wisecrack has evolved, trying new ideas, adding to your proven formula, giving different people in your team more of a platform, it's lovely to see!

It's really just people who push themselves to the limits of stupid situations they can think and perform and laugh at themselves in the process while making it amusing for viewers. It's basically some of those idiotic childish ideas brought to life. And boy is it a joy to watch.

  • Jackass was't secretly brilliant at all- it was overt. This was a time when Americans had been inculcated and admonished over and over about conformity and the normalization of "See something, say something" in the post-911 world. The unease that some kind of socially deviant behavior used to cause wasn't just breaking boundraies about personal and public space, it was funny because people around them felt real danger, only to be almost immediately relieved with the punchline. Jackass served to lighten us the hell up week to week while we were being told by parents and conservative pundits that the world was ending and we'd better get our shit together. Consequently, the world didn't end, but the recession of 2008 pretty much confirmed what the Jackass crew had been telling us-- lighten the hell up because nothing you do really matters that much in the long run. Do your best from day to day, enjoy your life, hang out with and love your friends and find your own unique way to not only grow and survive, but find confidence in being different and stupid.

  • Hello Wisecrack! Long time member and subscriber. Much love and respect for what you guys do. Pretty awesome! I have a video suggestion. Can you make a video (or series) about Social Justice Warriors and how it’s changed in post modern society, how it’s influenced by the internet and anonymity, people getting easily offended (on both sides of the aisle), and cancel culture? Also, if you can do a “What went wrong? Qanon” THAT WOULD BE FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Please please please consider it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you! And keep it up everyone :)

  • Irreverence is an important response to things getting too stuffy in a given space. You could see Jackass as a response to increasingly-high production values on TV in the late 20th century, the same way on KGworld we're seeing more irreverent people like Gus Johnson and iDubbbz gaining popularity in response to the Vine invasion and increasingly-high barrier to entry when it comes to production values (and attractiveness of the on-camera personalities).

  • Another philosophical viewpoint into the body humour aspect of Jack-Ass is Julia Kristeva's theory of Abjection. Admittedly this theory falls in line with body horror (think Cronenberg's "The Fly") but the vomit/faecal/urine aspects fall in line with the "cast off" side to Kristeva's theory of Abjection. It all falls to a way of establishing the boundaries between human and what is not human, and the societal boundaries we establish for ethics and morality.
