‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ is encouraging grandparents to follow in the lead of Irving Zisman, the main character from the upcoming comedy. The first clip from the Jeff Tremaine-directed fourth installment in the ‘Jackass’ series, ‘Broken Ride,’ has been released by the movie’s distributor, Paramount Pictures.
Fans of the ‘Jackass’ series are also encouraged to share pictures of their grandparents behaving badly, by using #BadGranpaPics. Viewers who post their photos on the pictures section of the film’s official website can win a trip to the movie’s premiere.
Paramount Pictures has released the following official synopsis for the film:
‘Jackass Presents:Bad Grandpa’ follows 86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.’ This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
