Are you one of the 15,000,000 odd fans* on our jackass Facebook page? If so, you're in luck (urine luck!), because we have two new opportunities for you to act and app upon. The first involves the ability to rent and stream jackass the movie, jackass number two, jackass 2.5, jackass 3 and jackass 3.5 directly through Facebook VOD-style, using Facebook Credits—all of which can be done right smack dab on the jackass Facebook page. That's right, no no need to drag your cursor's ass all over the damn social networked place.
Then there is the all-new "ClipApp", where you can search over 100 pre-selected scenes from all the jackass flicks to create your own customized clips. In other words, you can edit how they're linked together to mash-up a more personalized jackass experience, e.g. favorite pranks or stunts, a 100-percent Johnny Knoxville extraganza, or whatever else floats your little obsessive boat, and then share your final clip like a digital STD with friends on Facebook and other social sites. Did I mention it's free? Oh yeah.
Anyway, if you prefer your marketing poop straight from the horse's patoot in full downtown brown detail, here's the full release:
