Jack Black Uploads First Gaming Video to His New Channel and It's Not What You May Have Expected

Jack Black dives into the world of vintage gaming in the form of pinball machines to kick off the gaming content on his popular YouTube channel.

It’s been an interesting few weeks for Jack Black fans as the actor, musician, and all-round funny guy took his first steps into the world of YouTube through a new channel called Jablinski Games. With over two and a half million subscribers awaiting his first big outing, Black has finally uploaded his first gaming-centric video, and interestingly it’s not actually about video games.

The video in question is entitled A House with a Pin in its Balls. And yes, the name is indeed a giveaway; its all about pinball machines.

Starting off with the School of Rock star standing in the parking lot of the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Nevada, he proudly states that he’s beginning off at the birth of gaming. We are then whisked away into the museum to view some of the classic machines that it houses.

Inside we are treated to vintage machines including Ice-Revue, 1945’s Goalie, and Royal Gaurd from 1968. We also see machines from as early as the 1920s on display.

In true Jack Black fashion, the three-minute video is littered with jokes, musical outbreaks, and nods to his earlier work such as Nacho Libre.

Jack Black’s swift rise through the ranks of YouTube could be a sign of things to come. Although no video games were covered in this particular episode, its a great insight into what we can expect to see from this sporadic celebrity on Jablinski Games in the future.

Jabliski Games will see Black uploading a new video each Friday.
