The last time we caught up with Johnny Knoxville’s “Bad Grandpa,” Irving Zisman, the sex-crazed and clumsy old man was headed to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards with the help of Robin Thicke in an ice cream truck.
Now, in an exclusive new image from the narrative-driven prank movie, Irving is once again with his grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) and his six pack of beer, but he has found a new mode of transportation: a shopping cart. Granted, he’s asleep, but thankfully he has Billy to help push him down the road.
While “Bad Grandpa” might seem familiar to anyone who has checked out “Jackass,” the new movie isn’t exactly like the old-man pranks that Knoxville would pull off before. It tells a story in between the typical hidden-camera pranks. (Think Borat, but with John Knoxville in grandpa makeup with a kid in tow.)
The story follows Irving and Billy as the two drive across the country to take the boy to live with his father. Along the way, the duo finds themselves in a number of “Jackass”-worthy situations. For example, when Billy gets hungry, Irving gets the idea that a fun way to get free food is to crash a wedding. What the guests don’t expect is that he’s also going to crash into an enormous stack of champagne glasses.
“Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” opens in theaters on October 25.
