MTV is looking back at the early days of one of its favored sons with Bam Margera‘s “CKY: The Greatest Hits.” The special, which aired in Nov 2014, recalls the genesis of Margera’s “Camp Kill Yourself” crew and some of the world’s first viral videos. Bam Margera built a franchise of his own at MTV, alongside his inclusion in the blockbuster “Jackass” franchise. And it all started with ridiculous home videos he was making with his family and friends long before the concept of “viral videos” was even a thing. Coming out of Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s, he and his crew — which included his parents Phil and April — started off simply recording their own outrageous skateboarding stunts and other antics. The special will feature some of those early videos, including appearances by the late Ryan Dunn — a member of both the “Jackass” and “Viva La Bam” crews, as well as a long-time friend of Margera — who died in 2011 in an automobile accident.“CKY: The Greatest Hits” will feature conversations with members past and present, including Margera’s parents, brother Jesse, Chris Raab, Rake Yohn and others. Also appearing are “Jackass’” star Johnny Knoxville and director Jeff Tremaine.
