Tenacious D has done it again! The duo covered the classic 1989 Chris Isaak ballad “Wicked Game.” To help promote it, Jack Black and Kyle Gass took to the beach in a nod to the song’s iconic music video.

Black, in a singlet, and Gass, in tighty-whities, are seen below running in the ocean in slow motion. The joy on their faces is next level and a true delight. Also delightful? Tenacious D’s full cover of “Wicked Game” is available for streaming and download here. (Yes, Black is able to hit that swoon-inducing falsetto in the chorus.)


For the sake of comparison, here’s the original video for “Wicked Game.” Sure, Tenacious D’s video lacks a super-babe like Helena Christensen, but its general enthusiasm makes up for that.
