Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie
Jack Osbourne is back with his Adrenaline Junkie exploits from around the globe, but this time he has managed to enlist various celebrity companions to join him in convoy.
In the first Celebrity series Jack travelled to four different continents, where he was joined by a different group of celebrity friends.
In Europe Jack met up with Jody Latham of Shameless fame, Charlie Brooks from Eastenders and Bez from The Happy Mondays. Whilst there the team visited The Verzasca Dam in Switzerland and recreate the bungee jump from Goldeneye, voted the top film stunt of all time by Empire magazine. The team also embarked upon a cable car stunt high up in the Swiss Alps and wing-walking back on home soil.
Model Jodie Kidd, presenter and ex-Busted boyband member Matt Willis, and John Thompson of Cold Feet fame were the next group of stars to accompany Jack. This time the team travelled to New Zealand where they attempted to slack-line across a stomach-churning gorge in Queensland and took part in a 24-hour endurance race, including sea kayaking, abseiling into a mine shaft and rifle shooting.
With Jack in Mexico was R’n’B legend Craig David, tv presenter Emma Griffiths and Huey Morgan from The Fun Lovin Criminals. Whilst in Mexico the team rock climbed the classic Estrellita, took a single line descent into the awe-inspiring Cave of the Swallows, followed by a challenging two hour climb back to the surface, as well as joined a real life Mexican fight camp.
In the Second Celebrity series Jack was joined by sister Kelly and parents Sharon and Ozzy, as the Osbournes took part in a family adventure Adrenaline Junkie style.
Jack was also accompanied by Hollywood heartthrob Jesse Metcalfe along with Joanna Page (Stacey from Gavin and Stacey) and Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates in New Zealand and Dubai.
Also taking on Jack’s challenges in the series are singer Natalie Imbruglia, Lord of the Rings actor Billy Boyd and presenter Konnie Huq.
There was also a specially made extended Osbourne Family Adrenaline Junkie show featuring just the Osbournes. The family kick things up with a spot of rock crawling. Basically this means driving massive jeeps over boulders.
After a short zero-G weightless experience on a plane the bulk of Osbourne Family Adrenaline Junkie focuses on Jack, Ozzy and Sharon as they trekked to the south of Argentina for a two-day dog sled exhibition.
The Title Sequences were designed and created from footage and photography using Autodesk Discreet Combustion and Adobe After Effects.
