Santa Cruz-based sock brand, MERGE4, is pleased to announce a collaboration with the international film franchise, Jackass – in conjunction with the release of the Jackass Forever movie, hitting theaters on February 4, 2022.
The Jackass collection includes three brand new sock designs featuring iconic Jackass graphics: ‘International’, ‘Scattered’, and Skull’ – each constructed with light compression, padded soles, and a seamless toe and heel.
“MERGE4’s Jackass socks are the only socks you want to be caught in, no matter if you’re cheatin’, lyin’ or kickin’ ass haha!” said Jackass star, WeeMan.
“This collaboration with the Jackass franchise is frickin’ AWESOME and also a super natural (figuratively and quite literally) collaboration for us with Jason “WeeMan” Acuña being a MERGE4 Board Member and shareholder,” said MERGE4 Founder and CEO, Cindi Busenhart, “Jason is a bucket of joy and who wouldn’t want to be included with that? The connection really solidifies how we operate as a family – we have our own version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.”
The Jackass films – based on the Jackass television show which premiered on MTV in 2000 – feature over-the-top stunts, pranks, and interviews staring Jonny Knoxville, Steve-O, Jason “WeeMan” Acuña, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Dave England, Ehren McGhehey, and Preston Lacy. Known for their boundary crossing stunts the cast subjects themselves to dangerous and boundary crossing circumstances for the entertainment of themselves and their audiences.
“Happy to never feel the pain those boys go through to get a laugh. And DAMN…they do some crazy shit!” said MERGE4 Board Member and Shareholder Rob Roskopp
The MERGE4 X Jackass socks are available on www.MERGE4.com and at select retailers.
