is the closest thing I can think of to a real-life Tyler Durden
. The rest of the cast is his Fight Club
; but he is the visionary that saw the grand plan, and he will do everything that the rest of his cast will do. Knoxville even hits his friends.
Fight Club blossomed into Project Mayhem, a way of fucking with mainstream society. Jackass does this too, with their public pranks like Knoxville sitting way too close to strangers on a bus bench. Jackass challenges our perception of the innocent bystander the same way Project Mayhem was supposed to challenge our vision of corporate America.
