A very bizarre set of videos that Johnny Knoxville (of Jackass fame) is doing in Detroit.


YouTube - Johnny Knoxville: Detroit Lives Part 1 of 3

It's encouraging seeing groups of people passionate about Detroit, but it's shocking seeing all that footage of burned out buildings and hearing people say that it's just the media painting that picture.

Great videos. I've always had a fascination for Detroit. My home state.

Lots of truth in there. My parents and grandparents generation, they would never go down there.

When I drive down there, I have the same fascination as they are talking about in this video.
