Cardi B’s hit song “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion was undoubtedly the sex-positive anthem of summer 2020, debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in August. In a year that gave us so very few things to take joy in, the accompanying music video quickly inspired countless TikTok challenges, as people attempted to copy the sexy duo’s dance moves. And now, those numbers include actor and comedian Jack Black.
Black, known for his brand of slapstick comedy in films such as School of Rock, Nacho Libre, and the Jumanji films, is good for nothing else if not wholeheartedly committing to a bit. And after seeing Black’s contribution to the “WAP” TikTok challenge, it seems safe to say that the Tenacious D frontman has effectively reigned supreme.
In the video, Black is decked out in nothing else besides a tight-fitting red Speedo, as he’s hosed down by some lucky offscreen individual while performing the challenge.
It is, in a word, majestic.
As Black’s TikTok video went viral, amassing over 20 million views within a day, people began sounding off on Twitter to express their awe at the 51-year-old’s dance moves.
“Jack Black is extremely sexy; horny on main 2nite,” tweeted one user. “Watching Jack Black doing the ‘WAP’ dance was something I didn’t ask for, but most definitely needed,” added another, and so on.
To that last point—truer words have never been spoken. Jack Black performing the “WAP” challenge in a Speedo might just be the cultural reset we all need to salvage the dumpster fire that has been 2020 when all is said and done. Bow to a true king!
