Jack Black recently went viral with his Peaches song from The Super Mario Bros. Movie. With its success, Black and his band Tenacious D have dropped a new animated music video that’s an ode to games from God of War to Red Dead Redemption.

Though a parody of Super Mario was kind of expected with the music video, we also have all kinds of references to other iconic video games, including The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Minecraft, Tomb Raider, Sonic the Hedgehog, Team Fortress, and Street Fighter.

Black may be best known for his movie roles, but he did also kickstart a Youtube channel with his kids called Jablinski Games, which evolved to Black just trying out all kinds of games with his kids. The channel wasn’t as active as before, but it did help establish Black as another star in the video game side of the internet. He may not have the followings of internet celebrities like Ninja or PewDiePie, but he’s already Jack Black, so I don’t think internet numbers matter.

Here’s the synopsis for The Super Mario Bros. Movie starring Black:

With help from Princess Peach, Mario prepares to square off against the all-powerful Bowser to stop his plans from conquering the world.

Watch out for Black as Bowser in the Super Mario Bros. Movie, now available digitally.
