Buon giorno! And that's the extent of the Italian I learned while reading Babar's World Tour to my son years ago. Well, I've learned a few more key Italian phrases recently, but more about that tomorrow. Until then, here are a few (very few) photos that managed to make it back to the USA on Johnny Knoxville's iPhone.
Immediately after departing Mother Russia, he and Chris Pontius made their way down to Italy for a quick jackass 3D press and premiere tour (with a few touristy stops between at the Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica). I honestly don't know what else to say, so i'll simply let Knoxville's captions do the rest of the wordy work while I go take care of a tardy poo. A piu tardi!
Photos from left to right: Pontius in front of the Colosseum; At the jackass 3D after party with a student who wrote his master's thesis on jackass; A jackass 3D "victim" at the after party in Rome.
Bonus: If you're Italian and you know it, well, good for you, because the bulk of this video below is entirely in your tongue (and Fellini thought he had la dolce vita!). This isn't to dissuade any other non-Italian viewers though, because it doesn't take a man of the world to appreciate the subtle nuances of Pontius.
