Again Bam's licensing issues caught up with him forcing the pulling of this video and a re-mix to be created with licensed tunes. Oh well. By now you have to know the deal with the CKY video series and the pranks they pull on the unwitting public in and around West Chester, PA.

Remember the 1-800 collect ads that celebrities did in which they were berated for calling collect via an operator and not saving a buck or two? That concept shows up as the crew descends on a guy making a direct collect call. Insults and cursing erupts into a classic fight. Numerous shopping cart crashes ensue with the occupants winding up laid out on the asphalt or in a nearby bush.

The gay rolerbladers is a classic scene. Two guys, coupled at the hip wearing only jockstraps, ride past joggers as their potentially anal-antics are appraised. Mike Vallely fights 4 jocks who decide its a good idea to make fun of skaters. He beats the hell out of all of them before they know what's going on. Chris Pontius, in his acclaimed Party Boy role, walks into a fast food joint naked to get a few napkins.

People will do strange things for free money... well not that strange. Imagine if you saw a dollar bill on the ground and you just picked it up. What if you then discovered the other side was smeared with feces? You'd probably go into a raging fit. The guy they duped into picking it up did just that. But the funniest part is when Bam approaches him to sign a release so they can use the footage in the movie!

Comedian, George Carlin once said you don't often see someone running full speed while defecating. You can now with more detail than you may have wanted. Tony Hawk shows up and he and Bam drive around in Bam's Ferrari.

CKY 3 Soundtrack

Featuring the music of CKY, H.I.M., Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Kovenant, Sopor Aeternus, Grim Reaper, BloodHound Gang, DMS, 69 Eyes and Streetgang.

Bonus Stuff

H.I.M. does a cover of Billy Idol's Rebel Yell. I can't figure out why Bam is so fascinated with this euro rocking band. They don't even rock. They sort of suck more than rock, yet Bam has literally put them on the map by including them in his videos and using their logo (with permission, for a change) in his sk8 graphics.
