I'm no quantum kid, but there really is a perfect time and place for everything. For instance, this one time in particular, while filming the "Vending Machine" prank for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa just outside downtown Cleveland, it was just my dumb fucking luck that I happened to be the only one perfectly situated to witness the cosmic union of both. Yes, despite all our best placed cameras in standard operational shooting gallery position, a fleeting window of opportunity slid open and slammed closed just as fast as it happened and I, the lowly still photographer, was the only one who got the exclusive shot. Which, in other production words, meant that a real cameraman probably should've been there instead, because my still in a movie is about as useful as an abstinence seminar in a whorehouse. But I got it! I got it anyway. Even if it was a bit of a stick in the eye for all when it was realized the reaction wasn't in the digital can for the movie. Thanks, Einstein! Jerk.
Spastic for elastic? Wienerbound and down? Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is still in theaters and rolling out in merde as we speak! Yeah, I know, but let's not quibble over semantic shit when you can get showtimes and ticket info HERE.
