Nick Jonas & Jack Black Made A 'Jumanji' Music Video & It's The Best/Worst Thing We've Ever Seen
Remember when we told you Nick Jonas and Jack Black wrote a theme song for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle? Well, they’ve now given that bonkers tune a suitably wild music video that may be more action-packed than the actual movie itself.
In a meta twist, the video begins with Jonas and Black debuting the vid for their co-stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. They’re all psyched to see the finished product, which turns out to be two minutes of hilariously dramatic footage involving wind machines, special effects, animals, explosions, piggyback rides, and air guitars. It's wild stuff.
Naturally, everyone’s a little dumbfounded by Jonas and Black’s creation, and only Hart has the courage to say what everyone’s thinking: “That was shit.” Even The Rock — who was anticipating “Grammy-level shit” — had to agree.
When Jack Black and @NickJonas told me they wrote and shot an original song and music video for #JUMANJI, I thought, "this is going to be some Grammy-level shit." Turns out it's a different kind of 💩 .. but I kinda liked it. 🤙🏾 pic.twitter.com/Ol324hZd6h

Jonas, meanwhile, called his Jumanji theme some of his “finest songwriting work” to date, so — who knows? — maybe it’ll give him his second Golden Globe nomination. At the very least, we’ll keep this in mind for the 2018 VMAs, Nick.
