Whenever I like to think of Danger Ehren, I go back in misspelled time to the mystical land of India and a touristical place called Chokhi Dhani. Seeing him there all splayed out on a bed o' nails with cobras swaying in the discordant breeze was my idea of an ideal time—but I can only avow this from my spectating point of view as Ehren was anything but content in the heat of the Hindi moment. And it wasn't until over a year later that he finally saw the fruits of his labored moment, when this clip premiered in jackass 2.5, the little online feature that chugged its way into the hearts and minds of millions worldwide, bringing a happy ending to all our 2006 efforts in dropping not just one deuce but two. Happy Birthday, Ehren!
