A few days ago, movie star and musician Jack Black said that he planned to create a gaming channel on YouTube about the general culture of video games. No one was quite sure if he was being serious with this claim or trolling, but it turns out the answer is both.
The first episode, titled “A House with a Pin in it’s [sic] Balls” covers, of course, pinball. Black heads to the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and takes a look, like literally a look, at a lot of classic and not-so-classic pinball tables. He also sings All-Star in front of a Shrek pinball table, so there’s that.
Check out the video below.
The star of movies like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, School of Rock, and way more has a pretty fun time just walking around the museum and cracking jokes about things, including a personal movie viewer for 25 cents. He’s also wearing a Pitfall shirt.
In terms of gaming channels, Black’s is certainly unique, though I’d also be interested in seeing the actor’s supposedly famed Burnout skills someday, too.
