MovieMango grabbed Jackass 3D star Bam Margera to tell us about the movie and when he is going to die…
MM: Tell us about the new movie
Bam: In a nutshell, it’s a lot of poo poo, pee pee and throw up going right in your face in 3D. Honestly, I’ve seen it over 30 times now and I just wanna keep watching it. It’s the best one yet, definitely.
MM: What does the 3D element add to Jackass?
Bam: We thought of ideas that can relate to 3D such as, like, you know, the Heli-cockter, which is a remote control helicopter tied to Pontius’ dick. And beehive tetherball which is a bunch of bees that are flying all over. It looks cool in 3D.
MM: Do you think people really want to see your penis flying at them in 3D?
Bam: It’s not mine. It would take, like, four of mine to equal one of Pontius’, so Pontius uses his dick a lot more than me.
MM: In your own words, what is a Jackass?
Bam: The best way I can describe it is “certified dipshit”. I’m stupid; I can’t help it, I can’t fix it.
MM: Did you have any idea how huge Jackass would be?
Bam: I actually had a gut feeling about it because when I did CKY, I showed it to my uncles who are auto mechanics. I made it for skateboarders only, but they don’t know anything about skating and they’re laughing their asses off so I’m like, maybe other people like it beside skateboarders, you know.
MM: Do you get lots of concerned parents telling you off in the street?
Bam: You know what, it’s actually more kids being like, “holy shit, you’re from Jackass, can you kick me in the nuts or smack me in the face?!” And of course I do it…
MM: If you are at the supermarket, do you struggle to walk along with the trolley like a normal person or do you have to charge down the aisle Jackass-style?
Bam: Dude, I haven’t gone grocery shopping in like five years. I have my aunt do it for me. She saves all these coupons and shit. Ha, ha, ha!
MM: Any chance of a fourth movie?
Bam: We shot so much footage for the first one that 3.5 is already finished. And it’s fucking really funny bits. I mean, you can’t have a three-hour-long movie so they picked the very best and put it in 3, but 3.5 is completely done already. Straight to DVD in January.
MM: Can you see yourself doing this kind of stuff when you’re 60?
Bam: You think I’m gonna make it to 60?! Ha.
MM: You can’t see it happening?
Bam: Fuck no. I don’t know how it’s all gonna end but it’s not gonna be anywhere near 60. I reckon 40. And I’m fine with that. You never know…
