For weeks, we’ve been posting bored Marine videos on Friday. One stated goal is to find material that has not been widely viewed, things that are worthy of your time and interest. In the absence of that, another goal is to find material that keeps it clean, but stands out for its originality and creativity — or at the very least, it’s stupidity.
Friends, this week’s video raises the bar in all those regards.
This is what happens when dedicated Marines take it upon themselves to mimick ‘Jackass,’ the MTV show that gave rise to what will soon be a third full-length motion picture and a legion of fans who love gross humor, pranks and slapstick comedy. It is nearly 10 minutes long, and features members of Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 31, based out of Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, S.C., according to the YouTube page on which the video is posted. Several of the participants are officers.
A small warning: For those not familiar with ‘Jackass,’ the humor is certainly, uh, childish, and includes maybe one or two mild curse words along the way. The video also includes vomiting and a few shots of Wild Turkey consumed by full-grown adults:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTanCWuKeQQ&feature=fvst[/youtube]
Wow, that was really… something. I believe my favorite part was watching the reactions of people in the Wal-Mart parking lot, but to each their own.
Additionally: Friends don’t let friends attempt to drink a gallon of milk in one sitting. It’s something most of us red-blooded American males left behind in high school, for fear of the consequences.
