Bubba Raw Vol. 2 (IMVD)

3 1/2 stars (out of 4)

Bubba the Love Sponge(R) presents Bubba Raw Vol. 2 is the latest DVD installment of the insanity that goes on during the highly-rated Tampa, Florida radio host’s show. Bubba, who is currently #1 in both the Tampa and Jacksonville, FL markets and #2 on SiriusXM satellite
radio (behind only the great Howard Stern, whose channel, 101, he appears on), is both the ringleader of and a participant in the crazy hijinks that go on inside his fortress of sin (the studio has a torture rack and an MMA-like ring dubbed the “Bubbagon”).

What is Bubba Raw Vol. 2 you may ask?  It’s titillating, revolting, disgusting, terrifying, at times shocking and often hilarious.  There’s plenty of mirth and merriment to be found in the presentation of rattlesnakes, “blocks o’ sex”, boxing, puss shocking, breast baring, choking out, liquid assing, infected toenails and midget car flipping.

To me this stuff isn’t disturbing, but I guess to the average citizen it would be.  I hate to bring up the TV/Movie series Jackass for a comparison, but it’s the best shortcut for the uninitiated.  Though Bubba Raw always features far more female nudity than Jackass ever has (there was always a weird hint of latent homosexuality in the series – guys getting way too excited about seeing other guys’ junk), there’s a similar base, lowest-common denominator male mentality at work with both.  This is not high brow, but for what it is it is just about the best out there right now.

Things kick off pretty strong with animal expert David Weathers (a bit player in the Jackass universe) playing around with a rattlesnake.  The best part is when Weathers blows up a balloon to the point where his vision of the rattlesnake is blocked and he cannot see it lunge at him.  The slo-mo work here sends chills down the spine.

The show’s main man for merchandise, 25 Cent (otherwise known as “Deuce Niggaro”), is selected to “have at” porn star Stormy Daniels’ “Block O’ Puss”, which is a mold of the busty star’s asshole and vagina.  “Deuce” ends up fucking the pink off of the pussy and leaves his nasty seed all over show producer Matt “Spice Boy” Loyd’s sheets.

Comedian Reverend Bob Levy gets more than he expected when he’s strapped into the show’s torture rack and forced to confront show producer Brent Hatley’s infected big toe.  Levy’s eyes tear up, his speech gets more mangled than normal and he begins vomiting.  Though I don’t think it takes all that much to get Levy to spew.

For me, the nuttiest segment is the “Homeless Beauty Pageant”.  Bubba brings in three homeless women to compete for $200.  He gets more than he expected or probably wanted in Kim, a woman who, to put it mildly, is severely insane.  The type of insane that strings together sentences and makes judgments that aren’t just from left field, they’re not even in the ballpark.  Kim’s husband Mike, a proud “Southie” from Boston, takes control of the homeless women, even getting them to reveal more than anyone probably wanted to see.

Two segments that don’t work for me include a quickie with show member Hammill and a female midget (okay…”little person”) singing “She’s a Small Whore” to the tune of Disney’s “It’s a Small World” which falls flat and a two-parter with former show whore Akira where she gets liquid assed for an offense never mentioned.  Something about this last segment feels off and there’s either not enough tension in it or not enough shock or not enough humor.  Whatever it is, it’s one part of this otherwise highly enjoyable DVD that doesn’t measure up comparatively.

There’s a lot more to be found on Bubba Raw Vol. 2, but I don’t want to spoil all of the fun for you.  You can buy it now exclusively at FYE stores and through FYE’s website. It makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the sick fuck in your life.
