Donk on Wildboyz
February 3, 2006
Tonight MTV2 airs a new episode of Wildboyz, featuring Steve-O and Chris Pontius testing the limits of the Donk by ramming through pyrotechnically-rigged walls of televisions, aquariums, and home furnishings. This piece was filmed in March 2005 and the Donk survived all the punishment, until a driving error by Pontius caused the crash that crippled the Donk and led to its overhaul and upgrade in the summer of 2005. Heroically, the Donk managed to limp through and complete the final shots without any steering whatsoever.
