R.I.P. Ryan Dunn

R.I.P
Old news is still sad news. I'm sure most everyone knows that Ryan Dunn, star of the Jackass franchise and CKY films died last week in a terrible car crash. I always feared that one of these guys would get seriously injured or even killed performing the stunts on their shows but sadly, Dunn died not while filming some epic prank but while doing something just as reckless, drunk driving.

I went on a loooong rant about how special the original Jackass series was for me as a teenager in my (less than stellar) review of Jackass 3D. Ryan Dunn represented a part of my youth that literally went up in flames last week. Poor bastard. He and those glory days of fecal play and bone braking will be missed by this nostalgic blogger.

This video is literally the best scene from Jackass 3D...the ending tribute/montage sequence. It highlights old clips from the shows beginnings more than ten years ago and each cast member as child. Ryan Dunn's section begins at the 0:53 sec mark. R.I.P. sir.

*NOTE*
video can't be embedded right now =/

  2. E, really? Ohio's finest son? What about all those astronauts? I dunno, I don't really feel bad about it, drunk driving is one of those things I am pretty heartless about, you get what you deserve. I don't really care that he brought entertainment to millions, he was an idiot for getting behind the wheel. I'm just grateful he didn't end up hitting a van full of kids or something.

  3. Buh :/

    People, in the chance that he was an alcoholic, thus driving drunk because of no other, it's still a form of disease. Heartless bastards.

    "Oh he smoked and died of lung cancer. I don't feel sorry for him because he smoked and he knew what he was doing to himself" <- how ridiculous you sound.

  5. was he an alcoholic? i don't remember seeing anything like that about him in the news or online. in fact, i've never heard ANYTHING about ryan dunn being medically diagnosed as an alcoholic. if he was, then yeah, it's an unfortunate disease. was he doing anything to help the problem?

    the fact of the matter is that he was driving at 3am with a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit. he put not only his own life in danger, but his friend's and any one else's who happened to be on the road.

    i agree that it's a sad thing that happened. but it's also a perfect example of the shitty things that can happen when you drive drunk.

  9. Frankly, lady, I don't know, nor care if he was an alcoholic. You don't have to medically be diagnosed to be an alcoholic, by the way, just like you don't legally have to be diagnosed to have cancer. My problem is the attitude. A lot of people die every day for a lot of stupid reasons, that's called life. Yet you don't really see people saying "Oh, he was a douche bag anyway, and he shouldn't have done X in the first place".

    It's downright insensitive. Does it serve as a poster for what shouldn't be done? Definitely. But if he's already dead, don't piss on the corpse.

  10. D4- i'm concerned that maybe you might need your vision checked because i never said Dunn was a douche bag. in fact, i never called him any names at all.

    i am neither a fan nor am i anti Ryan Dunn. i have nothing against him and i do think it's an unfortunate thing that happened. however, you're going to be hard pressed in convincing me to side with someone who was careless enough to go for a drive completely wasted.
