Stephen Gilchrist Glover, otherwise known as Steve-O, said he always wanted to know what it was like to have a cauliflower ear (for some reason) and thought that the only way to achieve that was by having a UFC fighter pummel his ear with a hammer.
I’ll be straight up with you here; if you’re not into middle aged men missing part of their ear and acting like they’re not in pain while they’re covered in blood, then this isn’t the video for you.
You can see before the “accident” that the Jackass star is lying on his back with his ear resting on what looks like the long bit on a rowing machine, while UFC fighter Jon Jones brandishes a hammer saying “I’m getting ready to hurt Steve-O“.
You don’t see the moment the hammer makes contact with the ear – and it’s just occurred to me that this isn’t social distancing at all – but you see the gory aftermath with everyone laughing.
How is this not illegal? Surely hitting someone in the head with a hammer isn’t allowed, even if they ask you to. I’m not well versed in the law of the land, and especially not the law in the USA, but I’m pretty sure you can’t go around hurting people when they ask you to.
Filming the aftermath, Jones says:
“Steve-O came to town, started talking sh*t.
“You see how that turned out for him. I ripped half his ear off. You think Mike Tyson did something to Holyfield? Mike Tyson had nothing“.
Well at least he’s pleased?
Good on everyone involved.
