Ryan Dunn

Poo Dive is one of Ryan Dunn's earliest and most infamous stunts, where he dives into a sewage pool at a treatment plant and swims around in liquid shit.


While Ryan is getting undressed,Bam Margera zooms in on and mocks Ryan's haggard, home-made tattoos, including a plus sign, a noose, and a Red Hot Chili Peppers symbol. Ryan then straps on his protection and dives into the shit tank, where he splashes around in the feces for 5 seconds before climbing out. The shit appears to breach Ryan's underpants pretty much as soon as he dives in.

The cameraman claims to have blown the shot, forcing Ryan to dive in a second time and swim around. After finally emerging, Bam hoses Ryan down from a distance. A semi-naked Ryan then chases after Bam with his shit-drenched underpants and flings them at him, catching Bam's arm.

Ryan wears flippers, a mask and snorkel, a watch, a bracelet, duct-taped underwear, and a floatation device, a worryingly scarce amount of protection for such a dangerous, revolting stunt. The snorkel actually went under the water during the skit, resulting in Ryan breathing shit into his mouth. He is also simply washed down with a garden hose, and according to Jeff Tremaine, he didn't shower for over a whole week after the stunt. In contrast, Johnny Knoxville wears much more protection and is scrubbed down inside a car wash in the similar Poo Cocktail stunt.[1]

There is an extended version of this scene which features more footage of Dunn and also the ending where Dunn gets nailed by a football thrown by Brandon DiCamillo.
