Charity Daredevils

Reporter: Glenn Connley

What do you your kids get up to when you're not looking? While they weren't looking, Deidre and Kim Triffit's sons Levi and Jarom, were being daredevils.

Naturally, their antics found their way onto YouTube and, you know the rest -- the Tassie Boys, as they're known, became an "internet sensation". "Our first little clip that we put on, it received over a million views in one year", Jarom said.

"People were saying do it as a film, it's better than -- I'm not going to say -- but it's better than this and that, so that's where it sort of evolved", Levi said.

He's talking about the infamous 'Jackass' films Levi and Jarom perform similar stunts -- but without the bad language, alcohol references or all-round tastelessness of the Jackass franchise. "We do obviously inner tube rolling I like to call it, I like to class myself as the best in Australia, where I hop in a tube and roll down a big hill. We're into big swings as well off the side of cliffs and definitely the motorbike side of things", Jarom said.

"You don't just see motorbikes, you don't just see cars, you don't just see stunts. There's a whole variety of things. Anything we think of, you'll see it", Levi said.

It's all good, clean fun and, true to their word, they produced a DVD compiling all their death-defying ups -- and downs. "I attempted about a 90 foot dirt to dirt jump -- it all went wrong. I landed on my head and broke T5, 6 and 7 in my back", Jarom, said.

But Jarom doesn't think it was God telling him to retire. "I think it was him more saying look at what you're doing and take more care in what you do", he said.

Taking more care didn't just mean being more careful. You see, Levi and Jarom's younger brother, Corom, is severely autistic. The boys produced a second DVD and gave the proceeds to other families with autistic siblings. "It's something that we're really passionate about", Jarom said.

"The first time I realised what was going on was when I saw their first DVD and there they were jumping over a herd of cows on their motorbikes", Deidre said.

"Amazing actually, as parents, to find out what our kids actually get up to when you're not around", Kim said.

These days Deidre and Kim are on board. The boys are all grown up and getting serious. A third DVD is in production and Levi and Jarom want to turn the Tassie Boys film-making caper into a genuine charity. "We'd love to set

up a full time charity, a place where people can donate directly rather than wait for us to come around and harass them", Jarom said.

You can't help but like these lads -- they tell it how it is and dote on their autistic brother Corom. But they'll quite openly tell you Corom's illness meant mum and dad didn't have much time for the others, which, in turn, led to them entertaining themselves on the farm. Yet Corom remains their great mate, their inspiration and motivation.

"There's so much in the world today where we take, take, take and if we can give something back that's probably the most important thing", Kim said.
