Jackass ster Steve-O has revealed he managed to convince a doctor to paralyse him from the waist down to film a stunt for Jackass 4.

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.

The forthcoming film will reunite Steve-O with his Jackass co-stars, insluitend Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera and Jason Acuña.

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.

Hy het gesê: “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," hy het gesê. “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.”

Die Jackass team last worked together on 2013’s Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.
