A YouTube prankster bites the dust during a stunt inspired by Fonzie from Happy Days.
The jackass star mangled by shark is a video of Fonzie-inspired stunt gone wrong. Jackass star Poopies was bitten by a shark during the stunt, and it’s hilarious to watch as he lies motionless on the ground while the animal swims away.
If you thought Jackass and Shark Week were a wonderful pairing, you may want to reconsider. After years of doing hazardous stunts, one of the Jackass actors tried a stunt with a real shark. Sean McInerny a.k.a. Poopies was bitten on the hand by the marine monster during the procedure.
The actors of the comedy series were shooting for the Sunday Jackass Shark Week Special for Discovery’s famous Shark Week. Sean McInerney and his pals have previously pulled off a number of stunts without injuring themselves. They decided to up the ante by actually “jumping the shark” to increase the amount of risk. When Henry Winkler’s character Fonzie did the feat on Happy Days, it became renowned. The actor was dragged over a slope by a jet ski, where he leapt over the monster. Many reviewers and spectators agreed that the moment spoiled the remainder of the television program that followed.

Poopies went over a ramp and then leapt in the water to swim with the aquatic life as McInerny’s pals and colleagues Steve-O and Chris Pontius looked on. A shark attacked him on one of his hands shortly after he entered the water.
Thankfully, there were others on standby to give a helping hand. He was able to board a boat and was given a tourniquet to wrap over the bleeding region. He does not seem to be having any bodily parts removed.
If they saw a buddy being attacked by an animal, many people would be terrified. In this instance, some people were unaffected. Steve-O, who had previously been attacked by a shark, asked, “Is it true that there was just one bite in one location? And he doesn’t seem to be missing anything?” Steve-O understands how it feels to be in agony. In addition to the shark attack, one of the stuntman’s most renowned performances was when he swam in the water with a fishhook stuck in his cheek.
Costar Pontius, unlike Steve-O, was more shaken by the experience. The latter made the following statement: “It serves as a reminder that, indeed, we are pushing ourselves quite hard. Of course, this is a possibility. Either everything is OK or something bad occurs. And, ideally, it’s always “everything is OK,” “everything is fine.” But, you know, this time it’s not going to work out.”
While some people may feel resentment against sharks after being attacked, McInerny is unaffected. He spoke about it after the event “I was aware that I might get bitten by a shark, but I didn’t believe it would happen. I can’t say I blame the sharks. It was dinnertime, after all, and I was in their living room.”
The actors will also appear in a future feature film in addition to the Shark Week Special. On October 22, 2021, Jackass Forever will be released in cinemas exclusively. The film is being distributed by Paramount Pictures. Except for two exclusions, the whole cast will reprise their roles. Ryan Dunn died in a drunk driving accident in 2011 and will not return. Bam Margera will also not return, owing to his dismissal due to drinking and legal problems.
