Storyline

Before the body-threatening antics of Jackass came crashing into public consciousness, there was Ontario's Ralph Zavadil, aka Cap'n Video, who cascaded off roofs into snowbanks, jumped off ladders into half-empty swimming pools, and drank eggs through his nostrils. Beauty Day is a rambunctious documentary about this irrepressible pioneer of local-access cable shenanigans who entertained and outraged viewers in the small city of St. Catharines-until a special Easter Show, featuring a fat rabbit and adorable puppies (none of which were hurt), got him kicked off the air for good. With a nod to Werner Herzog, Cheel follows the life and times of Cap'n Video and finds that the Cap'n is still quite a firecracker. Written by Laurence Kardish

Captain Video - Great documentary
11 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very wonderful documentary. However they say that he came before Johnny Knoxville and the Jack Ass guys. However, before the Jack Ass guys were "Jack Ass" they were "CKY" so I'm so confused as to who really came first, but I would love to know. Some of the skits he did, like the snorting of the raw egg was similar to the wasabi snort in Jack Ass. His hair pie, I'm positive the other guys did this with Ball Hair.

Either way this was an awesome little documentary. A man with a camera and one shot who did some crazy stuff. It's worth the watch and if you like Jack Ass or CKY then you'll totally love this.
