If you never thought you’d live in a world where you could say the words “Oscar-nominated Johnny Knoxville,” the 2013 comedy Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa proved you dead wrong. Directed and written by Jackass veteran Jeff Tremaine, Bad Grandpa takes the Jackass formula of hilarious stunts and pranks, but puts them into a loosely plotted story that also features young Jackson Nicoll alongside star Johnny Knoxville. It makes for some of the best laughs of the entire Jackass series of films and livens up a formula that was starting to show its age. Now the crew is back for what basically amounts to a whole new movie with Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 (out on Digital HD today). Unrated and uncensored, the film features 40 minutes of additional footage, outtakes, and bonus materials. It’s a must-see for Jackass fans everywhere.
We’re stoked to premiere an exclusive clip from Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 (which is available on Digital HD right now). The two-and-a-half-minute clip features star Johnny Knoxville as Bad Grandpa up to his usual hijinks, but this time he takes little Billy (Jackson Nicoll) to see Santa Claus. You might think this has the makings of a heartwarming sequence, but not in the hands of Knoxville’s cantankerous character. Let’s just say that Billy has a little trouble … holding it.
