Jack Black went there. The funnyman, who will do just about anything for a laugh, topped his crazy TikTok debut from March – when the shirtless wonder performed his “stay at home dance” in shorts, sunglasses, boots, and a cowboy hat – by unleashing a new Instagram video. Captioned “Challenge accepted,” the star of School of Rock and the Jumanji movies sports only a red Speedo as he re-creates the “WAP” dance made famous by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion in their provocative controversial video for the blockbuster summer single.
Oh, and as Black writhes and twerks to the music on the ground, someone – whom he calls his “Hose water technician” — is getting him all wet by spraying fountains of water onto his, uh, glistening, spinning, flapping, undulating body.
With the nation still reeling from both COVID-19’s current surge and the fallout of the presidential election, Black’s videos are entertaining, if maybe slightly disturbing, distraction. Just try to unsee them, though. We dare you.

And for those eager to see more of Black, right before the pandemic shut down Hollywood, he completed work on Apollo 10 1/2: A Space-Age Adventure. The film, written and directed by Richard Linklater, will center on the fantasies of kids influenced by the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969. Linklater is making the film as he did Waking Life (2001) and A Scanner Darkly (2006), by filming his cast in live-action and then animating over them, a process called rotoscoping. Netflix will release the film upon its completion.
