Jackass Number Two (partially lost deleted scenes of reality comedy film; 2006)
This article has been tagged as NSFW due to its profanity, nudity, fecal matter and references to sex crimes.
Jackass Number Two was an American comedy film released on September 22, 2006 based on the MTV series Jackass. Similar to the previous film Jackass: The Movie, as well as the show itself, the film is a collection of stunts, pranks, and skits involving the various stars putting themselves through extreme physical pain for comedic effect. The film released to critical acclaim, leading to it making $85 million against a budget of $11.5 million.
While most of its deleted scenes were included on the DVD extras or compiled together for Jackass 2.5, a few of them still remain elusive.
Don Vito Tooth Pull
Status: Partially Found
During the movie's trailer, a brief clip is shown where Vincent Margera (aka Don Vito) is sitting down with a string tied to one of his teeth, with the other end being connected to a Lamborghini Gallado being driven by his nephew Bam, cutting away right before the tooth is pulled out. On the official website, a clip could be watched of Vito looking at the tooth after it was removed.
It was expected to be in the movie, but due to Vito being arrested for inappropriately touching two 12-year-old girls, MTV Films and Dickhouse Productions made the decision to remove all traces of him from the movie. The stunt itself would later be reshot for Jackass 3D, with Ehren McGhehey taking the place of Vito. The video footage for the original version has never resurfaced however, not even being released on the straight to DVD follow-up Jackass 2.5, which contained the rest of the deleted footage.
In 2010, cameraman Joe Frantz uploaded a video announcing that the clip would be released, but nothing ever came of it. According to a fan's comment on said video, when they asked Steve-O about the scene, he claimed that Paramount had "painted over" all Vito footage entirely. Steve-O also confirmed that Vito's upper jaw was heavily damaged from the stunt.
A clip of dialogue is on the soundtrack album as Track 10, "Your Teeth Look Like..." In the clip, Brandon DiCamillo says, "Your teeth look like a whore's toenails."
Human Newton's Cradle
This was a stunt which involved Preston Lacy, Bam Margera, Phil Margera, Don Vito, and Brandon DiCamillo being strung up in the air alongside each other, with Preston being placed furthest to the left. Preston would then be pulled back by Rake Yohn and Jess Margera before being released, at which point he would collide with the other four people strung up in the air, presumably creating a chain of motion similar to the spheres in a Newton's cradle.
The stunt was similarly cut from the film due to Don Vito's sexual assault charges, and has yet to be released in any form, with a promotional still being all that has currently surfaced from it.
Ignited Farts In Bathtub
Status: Partially Lost
This was an experiment that involved Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Dave England. Each of them were to get in a bathtub and ignite their farts, all having eaten cabbage prior. It ended with Dave England making an attempt, only to defecate by accident.
A few pictures can be found online as well as in the Number Two DVD photo gallery extra, and a short clip during the Jackass 2.5 credits shows Bam being disgusted upon finding Dave's feces in the tub.
The full footage was featured on the now-defunct Jackass World website, but said footage has not been recovered following the site's shutdown.
The experiment would later be retested in Jackass Forever with Steve-O doing the experiment. Before the experiment began, a brief clip of the unreleased original version was shown.
