Evel Knievel Sues Kanye West

Apparently, Evel Knievel isn't too thrilled with Kanye's depiction of him in his music video for "Touch the Sky". In one scene of the video, West re-enacts Knievel's failed rocket-powered motorcycle jump over the Snake River Canyon. However, Knievel believes that "the video that Kanye West put out is the most worthless piece of crap I've ever seen in my life, and he uses my image to catapult himself on the public".

Knievel also said, "the guy just went too far using me to promote his filth to the world. I'm not in any way that kind of a person".

I shoulda won! My video has Pamela Anderson and canyons and shit!

Regardless of whether you think Evel has become a crotchety old man or not, at least he never crashed any award shows claiming that he was robbed.

Holy Crap! That picture you have of Evil on the motorcycle is from his album he put out and I HAD that album. Of course I was 6 years old, but man did that just bring back memories.

Music Videos are one of the dumbest things man has ever created. Do we actually need directors for this shit? Is Kanye going to be on a telethon and say the same thing about Evel as he said about George Bush.....that would be interesting.
