Police and firefighters have been called in between pandemic season and raging fire to free a jackal that is stuck on a Hollywood billboard.
Only in the movie, children.
Or, in this case, in a real-life advertising stunt to advertise GnarlyNew, special comedy from Jackass star Steve-O, the man pictured above.
In this latest incident, Steve-O and a handful of aides themselves glued tape onto a billboard at the busy intersection of Cahuenga Avenue and Yucca Street in Hollywood using layers of black tape. The scarf covers from chest to thigh, leaving him shirtless, barefoot, but can be posted on Instagram socially.
Steve-O writes on Instagram: “I am sticking with a billboard. “And want to emphasize that a real team of experts cheated everything safely. It is unlikely that I would fall, and it is important for me that we do not waste any valuable city resources on this. I̵7;m happy just hanging out together ”.

The stunt was to “let the whole world know about this project that I worked so hard on,” he wrote, referring to Gnarly. However, he still complained of pain after 90 minutes and the police came to examine the scene.
“They said they weren’t sure what crime I was committing. I do not think so. I paid for the billboard, ”says Steve-O. “Hopefully no one is too sad.”
Finally, firefighters arrived, answered the call at 9:35 am and helped him relax and climb down.
“Lots of resources [were used]”Los Angeles Sheriff, Chief of the Hollywood Patrol Division, Brian Bixler, told the Los Angeles Times. “We are trying to keep them to a minimum for the fire department. But the fire department certainly has a lot of drilling rigs here, and needs a lot of resources beyond what we should do – to keep everyone safe. “
There are no charges against Steve-O for stunts. The comedy special is available for streaming at Steve-O’s website.
