Steve-O pulls prank against SeaWorldSteve-O pulls prank against SeaWorld

Steve-O might be primarily known for his “Jackass” stunts, but he’s also an animal activist and this summer he pulled off an awesome prank that combined both of his passions.

In an exclusive interview with the Dodo, Steve-O (also known as Stephen Glover) admitted to defacing a San Diego highway sign, switching up Sea World Drive to the more appropriate, Sea World Sucks.

“I have a pretty passionate stance against animal cruelty, as everyone knows,” he said. “But I want to be really clear here too: when I go on tour to various locations, one of first things I think of is what kinds of trouble can I get to to shake things up and get some news … this worked out so great. I could kill two birds with one stone: bring attention to the cause I believe in, and bring attention to myself.”

Back in May, when the stunt took place, Steve-O initially denied involvement. But now it seems the former circus clown wants to claim what’s rightfully his. The stunt, which took two days and five attempts to master, required Steve-O to rely on his past circus skills to shimmy up to the sign. It was his time at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College when the animal activist side of him first emerged.

As for Sea World, well, Steve-O speaks for us all when he says, “Sea World sucks,” and invites everyone to let the theatre park operator know that by using the hashtag, #SeaWorldSucks.
