An ambulance has just arrived and its lights are flashing. The Ex-Jackass director lies sprawled on the cement and the camera has been dropped. It looks bad but quickly gets worse as you learn that he's "sprained his vagina." How will the boys film their new season without a guy to hold the camera? Will they find a new professional director?
