The moment we’ve all been waiting for is, uhh, not quite the payoff we expected. Jack Black is Jack Back with a new YouTube video and he’s playing video games. This checks all the boxes a gaming channel needs to check, right?
Not quite. Black and his son go to a Round 1 Arcade to showcase approximately two minutes of hypercut arcade footage. Seven seconds are spent discussing imminent bowel movements. That’s 5.9 percent of the video!
It isn’t the Brutal Legend playthrough we all crave. It also doesn’t seem to matter, as Black’s numbers keep skyrocketing. This video has 3.1 million views, and his channel has 3.2 million subs. This feels like a long con — except instead of like marrying a person who you thought loved you only to get killed in a suspicious accident and then they take all your money and your children don’t get any and they spend the rest of their lives lamenting what a fool their father was, you get entertaining-but-short Jack Black videos.
