I've never understood that show, I've always thought it was a low-point in today's television landscape of constant low-points...

This clip just reinforces my view - too bad that the maximum fine was just $25k... idiocy like this should be sanctioned more harshly than that!

He should have been banned from flying in US airspace. It clearly shows how he knew the laws ahead of time, then refused to follow them. Kick him off, ban him for good.

He got picked on because he broke the law. Again the idiot is lacking a few brain cells so he probably didnt realize what he was doing in the first place.

Some of the things that the Jackass boys have done in the past have been funny - hiring a car and taking it stock car racing, scaring the crap out of one of their mates with a snake, sticking toy cars where they shouldn't go, etc

but lighting a cigarette when they're not supposed to, why is that funny.........?

Steve-o is definitely not funny when he's drunk and while I think Jackass has had things that have been hilarious, I don't see what could be funny about this clip. I heard his parents are pretty well off, therefore he has this much time to kill and do idiotic stuff, that half of the time isn't even funny.

Quoting Stirling (Reply 9):

Your right. It's the U.S. MTV generation what can you expect. The music on American MTV is bad as it can be. Ever since it basically turned into a reality show channel, its shows & personalities don't teach anything good either.

That was the first thing I thought too. He was clearly drunk, and yet the airline STILL ALLOWED him to board. The Airline must also take responsibility too - they should not have let him travel in that state.

Anyway, when did smoking on an a/c become DANGEROUS ?. It was only in the last few years that it has been banned - and that was more for health reasons. Until then, it was common place to see people smoking on a/c - on some airlines, the f/deck crew still smoke onboard !!!. Quick - call the FAA and get them fined too !!!.

I don't think he should have been fined 25K, I think he should have been banned to fly for a year. Then I would have made him air the tape, even put it on the news and be sure that at the end of the tape, a rep from the F.A.A. explained that because of his actions, Mr. Steve-O is now on the U.S. No-Fly list for a year. I think that would have sent a stronger message than 25K.

If we banned every idiot how knew the law and broke it then we would exactly 7 people able to fly. Granted, it was a stupid thing to do it didn't endanger anyone's life but his own. If you really feel that way, we should ban all those idiots out there that speed in their cars while talking on their cell phones and putting on makeup. Thats a better place to start.

Jackass (and all its successors) is only to a certain extent acceptable, and actually much more alarming.

It had its few funny moments, nevertheless it is predominantly a symbol of the downfall and hollowness of TV entertainment.

It has to get extreme in order to get attention and the worst part, people take note.

Neil Postman was absolutely right: we are amusing ourselves to death...

The only thing that can avoid those imbeciles on screens is the lack of attention.

I absolutely hate the thought of someone smoking next to me on a plane...

You are all saying that this is not funny, but think about what you might have said If that stunt didn't take place on a plane.

Or when Jackass was one of the biggest things on the television, and the majority of people were laughing their heads off.

Im sure you would all be saying something completely different!

Something for everybody to consider there!
