The videos feature Bam Margera, Brandon DiCamillo, their friends and Bam's relatives in various stunts and pranks, interspersed with skating footage of Bam and other pros. A trademark of the skating footage was to show unsuccessful trick attempts immediately followed by the same skater pulling the trick off. CKY started when Bam and his friends were in the same Graphics Arts class at East High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Instead of attending class, they would go out in a field and film skits. Eventually, they had so much footage of themselves, they decided to collaborate it into a video. Town center of West Chester. ...

The CKY videos brought Bam and his friends to the attention of Jeff Tremaine who drafted them into the cast of Jackass which aired for three seasons on MTV. Most Jackass skits featuring the CKY Crew were lifted from previously released CKY material or were recorded by the crew in West Chester, while the Los Angeles based faction of the Jackass team featuring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius and others recorded in California.

Landspeed: CKY

Landspeed: CKY, the first film in the CKY series, was released on March 1, 1999. The name Landspeed comes from Landspeed Wheels, which was a subsidiary of Tum Yeto Inc. that made skateboard wheels and clothing from 1998 to 2000. Landspeed originally produced the CKY video allowing Bam Margera to distribute it in the public domain. Bam discovered that the man who owned Tum Yeto, Tod Swank, was ripping him off.[1] Bam left Toy Machine and took the CKY video with him, re-releasing as simply 'CKY'. He removed the Landspeed title and other references and wrote "A film by Bam Margera and not by anyone from Southern California" on the back inlay.

CKY2K

CKY2K, the second film in the CKY series, was released on May 22, 2001. It is notable for the documentary of the trip to Iceland taken by Bam Margera and company. It also includes the "worry free" destruction of a rental car after paying $9 for extra insurance. Rake Yohn finished off the already damaged car by setting fire to the radio.

The original VHS release ended with CKY's "Disengage The Simulator," and featured nothing in or after the credits. The DVD release featured "One Last Time" by HIM, and featured additional footage.

This, more than the copyright infringements (of which there were many), led to the discontinuation of the DVD. This article refers to the Finnish band. ...

CKY4: The Latest & Greatest

CKY4, the fourth film in the series, was released on March 25, 2003. It has a sharp increase of editing techniques compared to the other films, mostly due to Bam Margera's newly-acquired wealth and ability to purchase motion picture film cameras and utilize advanced post-production facilities. However, it also features a lot of older video material, some unseen, some extended and some off-cuts from previous CKY films. Scenes include Don Vito's 50 Shots of Peach Schnapps (Bonus Feature) and Ryan Dunn rolling off a roof in a barrel. is the 84th day of the year (85th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

CKY4 is the only CKY video to be censored, and one of the few DVDs to have been censored three times.

  • A DVD "Easter Egg" (bonus material in a random menu), showed Bam and his then-girlfriend mid-coitus with altered color mixes to avoid nudity. This wasn't the first time CKY videos have attracted trouble due of this sort, but it had never been cut until mid-2003.
  • In 2002, Brandon DiCamillo and CKY drummer Jess Margera wrote a freestyle rap about Masters Of The Universe characters Skeletor and Beast Man engaging in extreme homosexual behavior, called Skeletor vs Beastman. Mattel, owners of the Masters Of The Universe franchise, heard about this, and were not pleased. Margera was sent a cease-and-desist order, and subsequent editions of the DVD (there have, to date, been four; the first two have the video) have replaced this video with skateboarding footage.
  • CKY guitarist Chad Ginsburg, a large fan of punk rocker G.G. Allin, visited his grave one day (probably June 28, 2002, as that was the anniversary of G.G.'s death, and the tenth anniversary was after the DVD's release). Consuming an entire bottle of Jim Beam bourbon (Allin's favorite beverage), he proceeded to urinate on the grave, and left an autographed copy of Infiltrate.Destroy.Rebuild. which was later stolen. Mixed in between the grave footage is CKY performing Allin's song "Bite It, You Scum".
  • At the end of the "lil key key" skit performed by Chris Raab, there was a "Secret Easter Egg" also got cut in 2003 due to unknown circumstances.
