The first time I saw Steven Glover, more commonly known as Steve-O, was in the opening credits of Jackass: The Movie. Steve-O and about eight of his best friends had all climbed into a shopping cart and pushed off from the top of a massive hill to see how long it would take before they smashed into a wall, flying onto the concrete and sustaining various potentially career-ending injuries. I would never have dreamed that it was possible for Steve-O to do something even awesomer than that—until the other week when he sat down with those wild, fun-loving hipsters in PETA’s youth division, peta2, to talk about his experience at Ringling’s clown college, and his thoughts about the circus’s treatment of animals. Yes, I know “awesomer” isn’t a word, but if anything merits it, this interview does. Definitely check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
