By Bruce Haring. Police and firefighters were called out in the middle of a pandemic and a raging fire season to free a jackass who pasted himself to a Hollywood billboard. Or, in this case, in a real-life promo stunt to promote Gnarly , the new comedy special from Jackass star Steve-O , the aforementioned taped man. In this latest incident, Steve-O and some assistants duct-taped himself to a billboard at the busy intersection of Cahuenga Boulevard and Yucca Street in Hollywood using several layers of black duct tape. The wrap covered him from chest to thighs, leaving him shirtless, barefoot, but able to socially post to Instagram. Still, he complained of being sore after 90 minutes, and police came out to surveil the scene. Finally, firefighters came, responding to a call at AM, and helped him unwind and climb down. But definitely the fire department has a lot of rigs out here, and it takes a lot of resources away from what we should be doing — make people safe. There were no charges against Steve-O for the stunt.
