The men of “Jackass” are cinematic pioneers. They were the first guys in movie history to attach bungee cords to a port-o-potty, and now they’re blazing a new trail into the world of online video on demand. Their latest flick, “Jackass 3.5” — essentially the best stuff from the “Jackass 3D” shoots that didn’t make the cut the first time around — will debut on April 1 on Joost.com. And since the press release says Joost is “digital ad-supported” that seems to suggest you won’t need to pay to watch it, either.
The “3.5” press release also states the movie, directed by Jeff Tremaine, “will feature over 85 minutes of all-new content, including never-before-seen stunts, outrageous pranks and other side-splitting antics.” I don’t know if “side-splitting” is completely accurate; I’ve never seen anyone’s sides literally split watching “Jackass.” I have seen someone dry heave watching “Jackass,” though maybe “stomach emptying antics” doesn’t work quite as well as ad copy.
Here’s the “Jackass 3.5” trailer:
