MTV Movie Awards viewers rock the stage as Jackass star ‘kissed python’

3 min read

Viewers were truly amazed as a jackass stunt won the Best Kiss award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards 2022 – in which Poppies gave a peck at a giant snake on stage.

Yes seriously.

The big screen stunt — which was unveiled in the gang’s latest big film, Jackass Forever — was honored at this year’s ceremony, which was held at Barker Hangar in LA.

This included a stuntman participating in The Quiet Game, where he attempted to kiss a snake without making a sound.

The scene was victorious against Emily in Paris against Lily Collins and Lucien Laviscount, Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz in The Batman, Hunter Schaefer and Dominic Faik in Euphoria, and Tom Holland and Zendaya in Spider-Man.

Going on stage to accept the gong, Poppies joked that he was ‘split’ by that particular snake, before a team of animal wranglers took a huge python onto the stage.

Then she lent to a kiss, the snake attempting to walk away—leaving the star-studded audience confused and frightened in equal measures.

He quipped before leaving the stage: ‘I’m so glad that thing didn’t bite me.’

The question among those watching from the house was why the snake was taken out on the stage.

‘That poor snake. Just for a geek laugh at one of those jackass idiots. #MTVAwards,’ one raged.

Another noted: ‘It’s a big freak snake #MTVAwards [sic],

One Twitter user said, ‘There’s no way in hell they’ve got a real snake in this b***h #mtvawards.’

A follower commented: ‘I hate that they brought snakes for that BS. #MTVA Awards.’

While others were very unhappy that the stunt outclassed their favorite for the popcorn award.

‘Lol this is so stupid. Best kiss for a friend and a snake??? WTF? #MTVAwards,’ said one displeased fan.

‘When did this show get so messy? Best for whom did the snake bite? Bring back Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar #MTVAwards,’ insisted one.

As one added: ‘How a snake and jackass guy beat Zendaya and Tom Holland for the best kiss! #MTVA Awards.’

Jackass Forever was released last summer, following the stars – led by Johnny Knoxville – as they performed even more stunts.

The flick used animals including bees, a bull, a scorpion and the aforementioned snake in several wince-inducing stunts.

PETA later requested a criminal investigation into the film, with Boss contacting the Los Angeles City Attorney and the Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney to take action.

In a statement, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk described the Jackass stunt as “violent and obscene,” but if the talent is willing and the wounds themselves are inflicted, that’s one thing.

‘However, it is quite another thing when animals are exploited, harassed and harmed: this is cruelty.’
