Jack Black On Korean TV Is The Weirdest Thing You’ll See Today

Jack Black faced some pretty fucking weird challenges when he appeared on Korean TV to promote Kung-Fu Panda 3.


While appearing on a Korean variety programme, Jack was first dared to face off against another contestant in a ‘marshmallow challenge’.

The premise of the challenge is simple enough – you stuff your mouth with marshmallows and the person who manages to cram the most in there wins. If you choke or are forced to spit one out then you lose.

Jack demonstrated a level of guile that would make his panda character ‘Po’ proud.  Rather than stuffing his mouth with the soft treats, he instead logically packed them into his gums before going on to fill the rest of his mouth – honestly, it’s like he’s playing the world’s weirdest game of Tetris.


In fact, Jack was so good at the Marshmallow challenge, that his team mates and opponents actually look concerned at his incredible stuffing skills.

The bizarre challenges didn’t end there though and Black then had to blow out a candle while wearing a pair of stockings on his head – because why not?

Is there any way we can bring this show to the UK?
