Before Christmas actor, comedian, musician and jack of all trades Jack Black announced he was launching a gaming channel on YouTube.
The channel, Jablinski Games, promises to be about ‘games, food and life’ and it is safe to say fans got excited.
In fact within a week the channel hit one millions subscribers with Jack releasing a funny video to celebrate the milestone.
Now, at time of writing (January 6), the channel has nearly three million subscribers all eagerly awaiting the first gaming video which arrived two days ago (January 4).
Entitled ‘A House With A Pin In It’s Balls’, which is a pun on the name of a film Jack starred in last year called The House With A Clock In Its Walls, the video is all about pinball. That’s right, pinball.
Although people didn’t really know what to expect from Jack’s channel, I think a vlog of him visiting the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas wasn’t on the list.
In the raw and brief three minute video, Jack and his son check out the building which is home to pinball machines dating back to the 1930s.
Highlighting machines including 1945’s Goalie and 1978’s Hoe-Down, Jack tells the camera ‘that’s the beginning of games as we know it, that’s… a gaming’.
There is also a moment Jack hilariously gets excited about the concept of popcorn.
Giving his final review of the attraction at the end of the video, Jack is positive saying:
Well that was incredible. Pinball Hall of Fame, if you are in Las Vegas I highly recommend it.
That’s Jablinski Games. See you next week.

If the videos are going to be strange and wonderful like the pinball one, bring them on!
