Fortnite Player Recreates Smash Mouth’s All-Star with In-Game Piano

Thanks to modern technology, we can record and edit all the really dumb and/or creative pretty simply. That includes this ridiculous cover of Smash Mouth’s “All-Star” using an in-game piano in Fortnite to perform it.

From Reddit user Jachael123_, using the power of video editing software, a whole lot of creativity, and tons of time, this piece of internet gold was born. The main melody and vocal melody is done using the giant in-game piano, which can be found in Pleasant Park, while the percussive sections were done in a variety of ways including using gunfire for the main drum part.

There are pretty nice touches that give the performance some personality outside of it just being a weird recreation of Smash Mouth’s popular tune. Using the “Take the L” emote during the beginning verse “She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb/in the shape of an ‘L’ on her forehead” was a nice touch. Also, using the fence as the clapping section was great. All of this is packaged in a nicely edited two-minute video that is worth the view.

For the uninitiated, “All-Star” is a song from pop rock band Smash Mouth. Featured on their 1999 album Astro Lounge, it is the band’s most popular song charting at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. In some ways, the song is more popular than the band itself.

In other Fortnite news, more details about the Fortnite World Cup have been announced. The competition will begin on April 13, 2019, and feature a $100 million prize pool. That’s a whole lotta cash.

Jack Black Belts Out Undertale’s Megalovania in Latest YouTube Video

Everyone across the internet is still pretty dumbfounded on the Jack Black YouTube channel, Jablinski Games, dedicated to “gaming, food, and life.” Is it a joke? Will he ever get to gaming content? Is this instead a high-pitch fever dream? Who knows. But his latest video has him belting out Undertale‘s iconic song Megalovania, and it is certainly entertaining.

Returning back to a brick-and-mortar arcade (following his pinball review) for a review of a local arcade, Round1 Amusement Park in Santa Ana, CA. After “dropping a deuce” (his words, not mine), he plays a bit of a dancing arcade game before heading over to Groove Coaster. That’s where he takes on Undertale’s Megalovania, singing along in his typical Jack Black signature style.

Following some Undertale fun, Jack Black turns to play some real-life bowling and an arcade version of Kung Fu Panda Dojo Mojo (lol) which he plays with his son. Then it’s one more spin at working up a sweat at dancing and the video is done.

If anything, you have to admit Jack Black’s take on gaming content is unique — perhaps that’s why Jablinski Games has soared in subscribers, passing both the one million and two million mark almost immediately after his initial video. In case you were wondering, he now sits somewhere around 3.2 million views with his four vides — each one ranging from 2.9 million views to 9.5 million views.

In other Undertale news, the community is coming back from a briefly-lived scuff up between Undertale‘s creator Toby Fox and prominent Game Theory YouTuber, MatPat. Other than that, everyone has largely shifted their attention to Deltarune, a non-sequel title that carries much of the same feel and humor. That project is in the demo phase, and still a far cry off from release.

It’s hard to make heads or tails on what Jack Black is preparing this YouTube to be, or what his growing subscriber base should expect next (my guess is a game of Checkers). However, if you want to catch his take of the meme-worthy Undertale song, check out the short video below. Meanwhile, Undertale is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4 if you haven’t grabbed the game yet.
