When you start something good - really good - and it takes off with unimaginable success, it would behoove the creator to ensure and solidify the groundwork for continuing said success. Take CKY for example. Funny movie. It did really well sales-wise with the soundtrack from a relatively unknown band. For the next release, CKY 2K, they beefed up the musical selection... without the various artists consent. Among them were Rammstein, Delirium and Bjork.

Popularity rose once again, but this time the musical artists got a little pissed that their songs were used with out being licensed. Oops. Hence, you won't find any new copies of this gem at your video retailer. Gotta get this one used.

CKY 2K opens with an air-guitar performance above Brandon's head. As the music and intensity grows the strumming of the air-guitar turns to random punches to his head. Classic. What's more fun than diving from the bed of a speeding pickup truck into random shrubbery? Perhaps being towed behind the truck, on an over-turned table, by a rope. But that's pretty tame, right? So, the action extends to smearing poop onto a sleeping friend's face and his retaliation by peeing in the guy's face... as he slept. Awesome wake-up call.

There is a strange interlude, filmed in Iceland, as the crew tries to find Bjork's house. Naturally an unlicensed version of one of her songs plays in the background. Bored Rake Yohn decides to set the rental van's radio on fire. After being put out by fire fighters, that $9 per day insurance really paid off well.

Why play football in an open field? Why play at all when you can simply place-kick the ball at passing cars. Driver reactions are classic. They get out and yell and threaten all sorts of good stuff. The guys talked their way out of it each time.

Would you ever consider freezing a bee and tying a thread to it so you could thaw if and watch if fly around like a kite? Me either, but I'm also not an imaginative film maker like Bam. Next Bam dons a pair of size-60 pants - filled with bam and bubble-wrap - and skates up a storm as the crew cheers him on and tackles him ruthlessly.

We highly recommend this DVD as long as you enjoy toilet-humor and steer clear of sobriety during viewing.
