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

Genius often appears to 'normal' people as insanity.
11 March 2012 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

Cap'N Video is quite a character, and if you are like me, you have no doubt seen his epic fail ladder stunt. But the man behind that goofy moment is an incredibly alive philosopher whose goal in life is to open peoples' eyes to the joys of goofing off.

I was shocked how perfectly this Doc came together. It has great drama, lots of laughs, and so many interesting characters/stories that a lot of it seems almost unbelievable.

But this is a true story, so you'd better believe. If Cap'N video doesn't inspire you - either you're already like him, or you'll never understand him.
