Ryan Dunn

On Monday, Nov. 28, MTV aired an hour-long special in remembrance of Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn. Dunn and fellow Jackass crewmember Zachary Hartwell were killed as a result of drunk driving in June of this year. A Tribute to Ryan Dunn aired immediately after an episode of Rob Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness in which Dunn guest-starred – his last appearance on television.

The special gave a rare glimpse into the life of the 34-year-old stuntman, including his amusing struggles with personal hygiene and his enthusiasm for stunts which other Jackass stars were unwilling to perform. The special also aired never-before-seen footage of Dunn from the filming of Jackass, Viva La Bam, and Bam Margera’s numerous CKY videos.

While the tribute was a light-hearted look at a beloved MTV star, it was underscored by the fact that this death was caused by a problem with alcohol and that this problem was not victimless. Regrettably, the tribute did not give enough time for the loss of Hartwell’s family.

And if some of you are questioning why Ryan Dunn was ever relevant enough for a tribute special, just ask anyone who happened to be a 14-year-old boy in the past decade. Dunn (clearly) wasn’t a hero. But he was a great entertainer.
