Ryan Dunn honored with a tribute video - Watch
Ryan Dunn's "Jackass" friends have honored the late daredevil with a tribute video featuring some of his best stunts and a song written for him by musician Roger Alan Wade entitled, "The Light Outlives the Star."
"Ryan was really crazy about my cousin Roger," Johnny Knoxville said in a statement to MTV News. "He loved his music and really looked up to him. Rog' was equally as crazy about Ryan and, like everyone else, was shook by his passing. Rest in peace, brother. We love you."
The video was played at a recent memorial service, which was held at Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles. Dunn's "Jackass" co-star Rick Kosick edit the video to include the stuntman's "greatest hits."
The five-and-a-half-minute video is one of many tributes the "Jackass" production company Dickhouse Productions compiled to honor Dunn. His co-stars also wrote about their fondest memories of their fallen friend on the company's website.
Dunn's best friend and "Jackass" co-star Bam Margera opened up about the accident last week, revealing that it wasn't the first time his friend got in a car accident.
"He flipped me in a car eight times at the same exact spot in 1996," Margera told E! Online. "Thank God I had my seat belt on, because Chris Raab put one on me, but my brother didn't have one on. He flew 40 feet. Thank God he's alive. But like, Dunn was always a maniac at driving."
Dunn crashed his Porsche in Pennsylvania on June 20, killing himself and a passenger. Local police told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a statement that Dunn, 34, was drunk at the time and that he was driving between 132 and 140 miles per hour.
After the accident, Dunn's family members, friends and longtime girlfriend Angie Cuturic gathered for a private memorial. Dunn's friend and co-star Johnny Knoxville said on the website of one of the production companies of "Jackass" on June 25 that he was unable to convey his feelings at the event.
"I lost my brother and my world got about 134 percent less funny," Knoxville wrote in an online message posted after the funeral. "I don't know what else to say right now, so I will close with I love you, Ryan. I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much."
Dunn, who celebrated his 34th birthday on June 11, appeared on "Jackass" the series between 2000 and 2002 as well as in "Jackass" films.
It was announced last week that Dunn's G4 series "Proving Ground" would return to television on July 19, along with a one-hour "Attack of the Show" tribute to the daredevil, which will air on July 19 at 7 p.m. ET.
