STUNT: GROSS DUNK TANK
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
DESCRIPTION: Couples stunt where one player sits over a carnival dunk tank filled with cow stomachs, intestines, hearts, lungs, and brains while their partner throws soft balls at the target attempting to drop them into the tank.

- There were over 2000 pounds of various cow parts in the Gross Dunk Tank.
- The dunk tank was used at an elementary school carnival the day after the shoot.
- A pack of coyotes was attracted to the smell of rotting cow parts during the shooting of Gross Dunk Tank.
