Evil Knievelā€™s first jump was a publicity stunt to sell motorcycles. When working as a motorcycle salesman for Honda, Knievel devised a publicity stunt to drum up business; he would perform a jump over a tank of cougars and rattlesnakes. He shorted the jump, landing the tyre of the bike on the edge of the tank, sending snakes flying into the crowd of onlookers.
