You didn't forget how to get them off, did you?

–Johnny Knoxville

Johnny Knoxville gets several thousand bees to cover his crotch and buttocks area, creating a pair of bikini bottoms made of bees.[1] This concept was later expanded upon in Jackass Forever.


The bit opens with a short interview with professional beekeeper and bee expert, Norm Gary, who has been working with bees for 51 years. Johnny Knoxville, donning nothing but Ray-Bans and a pair of beige bikini bottoms, telephones his doctor to find out whether he is allergic to bees or not. His doctor informs him that he has no major allergy to bees but warns him to not pull out the stinger if he is stung.

Gary then applies artificial nectar to Knoxville's bikini bottoms in order to attract the bees. Gradually, they gather on the bottoms, forming a beekini. Then, Gary removes the reluctant bees. The bit ends with a short scene of Jeff Tremaine chasing Rick Kosick with a bee, to which Kosick punches Tremaine in the arm.
