Bollocks?: Ryan Dunn Passing Away.

I’m no adrenaline junkie myself. I don’t like pushing myself to the limit or hurting myself for kicks, but I’ve fond memories of watching Jackass at my friends house crying with laughter and gagging with disgust at some of the crazy shit those boys got up to.

Whether or not you love or loath the Jackass boys and their program one thing that’s undeniable is that Jackass was an unapologetic, rebellious program in a world where censorship and political correctness were taking over the media.

Ryan Dunn was a member of this motley crew and he proved he had bigger balls than most, time and time again. He starred in all three seasons of Jackass and appeared in all three movies. On June 20th 2011 he was killed in a car crash. He was 34 years old.

Im not the biggest Jackass fan in the world. But I look back now at the young impressionable 10 year old sat in fits of laughter as the Jackass boys did their stunts and I feel a pang of sadness. It seems that with the passing of Ryan so to passes the end of an era I wasn’t ever really aware was taking place. I guess you dont know what your missing till its gone.

I guess its a small comfort to know Ryan lived hard and fast and I doubt he’s many regrets.

Rest in peace Ryan.
