Jack Black Follows Up Mario Movie with Tenacious D Video About How He Doesn’t Play Video Games
Despite Jack Black’s show-stopping performance as Bowser in the critically-maligned, audience-beloved Super Mario Bros. Move, he and his Tenacious D partner Kyle Gass need you to know that he isn’t, like, into video games. Just God of War. And a little Red Dead Redemption. And Fallout. And Sonic the Hedgehog, and, of course, the Mario series. Okay, Jack Black might love video games.
Yesterday, Tenacious D released the official video for their new banjo-shredding single “Video Games.” The short, sleek romp was created and directed by prominent YouTube animator Chris “Oney” O’Neill, and “Video Games” is dripping with effort and production value in a manner not unlike Black’s most recent box office megahit.
In case you’re in need of another hit of Jack Black singing his heart out in an animated homage to the biggest titles in gaming, here’s the unofficial B-side to “Peaches” in all its gory glory.
