MTV Films is taking comedy movies to a new level with their latest movie, Bad Grandpa. The film, hitting theaters October 25th, features Johnny Knoxville as an adventurous elderly man who travels America with his 8-year-old grandson, causing mischief with every step. Knoxville’s character, Irving Zisman, has been featured in previous “Jackass” skits over the years, and is the main character in Bad Grandpa. Here’s where things get interesting: Besides the actors, the people in the movie don’t know they’re being filmed. With the help of a few hidden cameras, and a lot of balls, director Jeff Tremaine terrorizes unsuspecting bystanders in this all-new improvised feature film. Bad Grandpa also features fellow “Jackass” members Bam Margera, Steve-O, Jason Acuña and more.
In celebration of the film, I decided to delve into the “Jackass” files, for some of their funniest old people pranks and skits.
Watch the trailer for Bad Grandpa above, and the hilarious skits below.
