Jack Black: Tenacious D - Video Games YouTube/Tenacious D

Jack Black has once again showcased his skill for creating incredible songs, and this time, he pays homage to video games.

Following the success of his song "Peaches" in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Jack Black's band, Tenacious D, released a new track titled "Video Games." The song comes with a catchy soundtrack filled with countless references to Black's favorite video games. In the video, he talks about how he no longer plays video games, except that he does enjoy a wide range of amazing titles.

The video begins with an animated portrayal of Jack Black, along with his bandmate Kyle Gass, who plays the guitar. The latter comedically becomes a victim of violent deaths throughout the video. The impressive animation of the music video was crafted by Chris O'Neill, known for his contributions to the gaming YouTube channel OneyPlays.

Throughout the song, Black referenced an array of beloved video games, including God of War, Fallout 4, Sonic, Red Dead Redemption 2, Mario, Tomb Raider, and The Legend of Zelda. He specifically praises RDR2 and calls it "an incredible journey," and we agree with his sentiments. He even suggested in the past that Red Dead Redemption should be adapted into a movie, although we believe a TV show would be more suitable.

As mentioned earlier, this isn't the first time the actor has merged music and gaming. Just last month, his song "Peaches" achieved recognition by securing the 83rd spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list, marking a significant milestone in his music career.

Black isn't the only Hollywood actor who has publicly professed their love for gaming. Former Superman actor Henry Cavill is also a gamer, or what we like to call a video game enthusiast. Cavill is a huge Warhammer and Witcher fan and has even portrayed the role of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Netflix show; although season three will be his last outing as our favorite monster slayer.
