Tenacious D
'Video Games'
15 May 2023 1 min 35s

Tenacious D, the comedy rock duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass, deliver a short-and-sweet ode to video games with a track called, erm, 'Video Games'. Black may have starred in his own action-adventure title (2009's 'Brütal Legend') and voiced Bowser in ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’, but he insists, "I don't play video games no more, never play video games".

He makes exceptions for stuff like 'God of War', 'Fallout 4', and 'Red Dead Redemption 2' (the latter, he explains, is less a game and more "an incredible journey through old American history"). In fact, Arthur Morgan's Old West odyssey is "like fuckin' Shakespeare”—the most Jack Black review possible.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the fifty-three-year-old admits that he does still play video games after all ("Yee-haw"), cynics be damned. Black hopes older gamers like him never become ashamed of their hobby, and he's got a treat for true believers.

Director Adam Paloian's CG promo celebrates numerous titles, genres, and visual styles, whether it's 16-bit 'Sonic the Hedgehog' or 4K ‘Red Dead Redemption'. Poor Kyle Gass gets killed a lot, but it's done with love and affection.
