Thanks to Reddit and my ongoing search for obscure cult video, yesterday I discovered Cap’n Video – a TV series that used to air on public access TV in St. Catherines, Ontario, (where the mike went to school, incidentally) and featured crazy stunts like this one many years before Jackass. In this particular stunt, the Cap’n, whose real name is Ralph Zavadil, fractured his neck in the fall and almost drowned. The aftermath of this stunt, and a whole lot more, can be found in the 2011 documentary Beauty Day. And more Cap’n Video can be found online by clicking here. Why am I not surprised this guy has a Youtube channel?
