The video begins with a cartoon version of Jack Black singing about how he doesn’t play video games (we all know that’s not true) with bandmate Kyle Gass playing guitar. Then Jack starts naming a bunch of video games he’s played… while Gus is killed by various video game creatures and characters.
During the song, he references the games God of War, Fallout 4, Sonic the Hedgehog, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Legend of Zelda, Street Fighter, Minecraft, Tomb Raider, Team Fortress 2, Mega Man, and Super Mario Bros.
This isn’t Blackjack’s only song about video games, as last month his song “Peaches” managed to reach the Billboard Hot 100. It reached number 83, making it the first song he sings alone to reach this list.
