Playing tetherball is a fun, time-honored school-yard tradition (just ask Napoleon Dynamite). Playing tetherball with a beehive? Not so much. But you don’t have to ask “Jackass” stars Steve-O and Dave England for verification. You just have to watch an exclusive clip of the fellas doing exactly that in “Jackass 3D.”
In the video, the two jackasses suit up in naught but their underwear and some very flattering bear hoods and prepare to slap a beehive on a string back and forth at each other. Beforehand, however, they ask the kindly long-maned beekeeper how many stings it takes to make a man dead… to which he responds, “I think it takes about a hundred to kill a man.” We’re not sure how many Dave sustains (many of them before the game officially begins), but it looks like it may have been pushing a hundy. Thankfully, he didn’t die (we think). Still, we’re going to go ahead and give Steve-O the victory.
“Jackass 3D” opens today in theaters everywhere and, with solid reviews and the commercial-friendly 3-D element, could rake in more that $30 mil for the weekend to best the $29 million opening frame of “Jackass 2.”
Are you planning to see “Jackass 3D” this weekend? And have you ever done anything on par with smacking around a buzzing beehive? Tell us in the comments!
