When you think of Steve-O you probably think of the guy that eats Goldish for pranks, got hit by Mike Tyson just for the hell of it, and had ‘your name’ tattood on his arse.
You probably don’t think of Steve-O the prospective gymnast. Steve-O with the core strength of an Olympic athlete.
Well, think again – as if this video, obtained by the good folks over at TMZ, is anything to go by, Steve-O is an athletic specimen. Sort of.
Before we get to the clip – it’s worth knowing that just days ago this crazy diamond suffered major burns all over his arms after they got torched in a stunt gone wrong.
How so? He poured rocket fuel over himself resulting in one helluva lot of burns and yellow boils.
The pain only increased for the five days since I got burned, so I went to the hospital asking for a numbing burn cream. When they saw my burns they said I needed surgery, so that just happened. This whole experience is great for two reasons– my new comedy special is truly the next level of crazy and awesome, and I finally have an answer for the one question I've been asked BY FAR the most: "which stunt hurt the most?" The answer– "Fire Angels in my living room at my house". I can't wait for you to see how insane and hilarious the five different pyro stunts in my living were! Thank you all for the love and support!
Major burns and he’s still able to pull this off?
I guess now it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Steve-O starred as Mila Kunis’ stunt double for the entirety of Black Swan.
At the minute Steve-O, real name Stephen Gilchrist Glover, is working on a project with the Jackass director, Jeff Tremaine.
If it turns out anything like Jackass: The Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3D, Jackass 3.5, or Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, then I’ll be very happy.
Hopefully your burns get better soon Steve-O. Maybe next time stay away from the rocket fuel, strangely it’s not too good on skin.
