Brutal Legend promoting the game at various venues. His latest appearance as the roadie hero took him on The Jimmy Kimmel Show last night where he talked up the game and did some OUTRAGEOUS JACK BLACK ANTICS!

The entire interview is split up in five videos on YouTube where Jack talks about the game, taking steroids, does some pushups and talks about his birthday. He also fights a poor audience member who just wanted to hear the results for Dancing With the Stars.

Between this and the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, Brutal Legend has been getting some really good mainstream attention. Hopefully this continues with more games in the future. Check out the entire interview after the break.
