While many think of Jack Black for his numerous acting roles or as the lead singer of the band Tenacious D, he has now turned his attention to the gaming world, starting his own YouTube channel named JablinskiGames.
At E3, Black was discussing YouTubers he would like to collaborate with, but when Ninja’s name was mentioned, the School of Rock star joked that he didn’t want to work with him, but suggested that the pair were on a collision course instead.
Black and his son Sammy discussed their collaborations with fellow YouTuber Ricky Berwick, with the Jumanji actor stating that it was something they enjoy, and would like to do more of with other creators.
When Keighley mentioned Fortnite sensation Ninja was in California for E3, Black jested that the pair would be squaring off rather than teaming up.
Black said: “Well Ninja, there’s been a head-to-head battle brewing for months,” with Sammy continuing: “We’ve talked about him so much and he’s never said a word.”
Keighley then tried to Facetime the streamer with Black, but wasn’t able to get him on the phone.
This isn’t the first time Black has called out Ninja in jest. Back in early 2018, the actor joked that the streamer had stolen his “Delgato” capture card so he couldn’t make gaming videos, insinuating that he was scared that Black would overtake him as the most popular gamer in the world.
The actor has been “training” for a confrontation with Ninja for a while, revealing back in February that he was working out so he would be “ready” when the right time to challenge the former Halo pro presented itself.
Black’s YouTube channel has been a roaring success since its launch, amassing over four million subscribers in less than six months.
Whether the pair do eventually square off in a battle or instead choose to collaborate together remains to be seen, but it certainly seems like something Black is eager to accomplish.
