Reality star shared a snippet of the graphic injection scene
Jackass was a series that originally aired on MTV in the early 2000s. The controversial show featured a cast of nine carrying out incredibly dangerous stunts and pranks on each other.
In a new clip posted to his YouTube channel, Steve-O – real name Stephen Gilchrist Glover – revealed that one of the film’s especially hazardous stunts required him to be paralysed from the waist down.
He said: “I might have actually talked a doctor into dressing up as a clown so that he could put a four-inch needle into my spine and inject me with a drug that would paralyse me from the waist down while I was sprinting and before all kinds of terrible s*** happened to me.”
The reality star shared a short clip showing a needle being injected into his spine with the surrounding skin speckled in blood.
The 46-year-old also revealed another extreme stunt lined up for Jackass 4, which involves him diving into a tub of “pure piss”.
“I’m getting ready to do a world record highest belly flop ever performed into pure piss,” he said. “That’s why I have 190 gallons of pure piss in my front yard at home.”
Last year it was revealed that both Steve-O and Knoxville were hospitalised on the second day of filming Jackass 4.
Sharing a video from the hospital waiting room, co-star Margera said: “Second day of filming Jackass and already Steve-O and Knoxville are hospitalised by jumping on a full-speed treadmill with band equipment.”
The Jackass team last worked together on 2013’s Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.
