Jackass Johnny Knoxville Hurts Balls in Evel Knievel Tribute

Jackass Johnny Knoxville Bloody Balls

Jackass star Johnny Knoxville recently injured himself while attempting to do a backflip on a motorcycle under the guidance of world-record jumper Travis Patrana for an upcoming television special “Matt Hoffman’s Tribute to Evel Knievel”. Knoxville made a post on the brand new website called JackassWorld.com that describes the incident;

Just got back from Oklahoma where I was shooting “Mat Hoffman’s tribute to Evel Knievel.” Had a ball, too, even though I almost lost my own balls in the process. Don’t want to give too much away because the tribute airs Feb 23rd on MTV, but let’s just say before letting Travis Pastrana teach me how to do a backflip on a motorcycle I should have had him teach me to ride one first. Heh-heh…bad for me, good for our viewing audience at home. Have to go now. Have to empty the piss bag on my leg that I have to wear for the next two weeks until my torn urethra heals. Ouch, and see you on the 23rd. By the way, lots of great stuff in the Evel Knievel tribute besides my trip to the hospital—lots!
