Instead, they were treated to a show from Jackass star Steve-O.
The danger-seeker from the movie and MTV franchise was captured on video entertaining guests and skating on a counter at a Buc-ee's in the town of Wharton, as first reported by the Express-News.
In a TikTok posted by user @terrdave, Steve-O — sporting a T-shirt emblazoned with the face of Buc-ee the Beaver — rides a skateboard across one of the truck stop's counters and jumps off moments before the board hits the floor.
The Express-News speculates Steve-O — whose real name is Stephen Glover — was en route to McAllen, where his Bucket List Tour was scheduled to stop Tuesday. The tour is billed as a "multimedia experience" where patrons can expect to see the entertainer perform wince-inducing stunts usually reserved for Jackass movies.

"Now, there's footage of what's called an epidural, where a doctor in disguise puts a four-inch needle into my spine and injects a drug into my spinal cavity to paralyze me from the waist down, while I'm in full sprint," Steve-O told Yahoo Canada about the tour.
Although known for extreme stunts, the Buc-ee's appearance suggests Steve-O has some respect for law and order. Wharton Police Chief T.D. Lynch told the Express-News the star "complied without any incident or any disrespect" when staff asked him to get down from the counter and even took photos with an officer.
"You never know who you may run into at Buc-ee's," Lynch wrote in a Facebook post.
