Christmas Song Challenge ft. Jack BlackMay 01, 2020
Today we are going to throw Christmas balls at the wall in our Christmas
challenge. Hey, let's talk about that. (rings) (fire roars) Good mythical morning. Today we're going to get undercover with Jack Black, see if this year's hottest toys are fun for dads, and find out if you can tell the difference between fake people and reality stars, but first we're going to take Christmas
songs from boring to cool. Rhett: It's time to... Jack Black: ♪ The Christmas Song Challenge ♪ Welcome to the show, Mr. Jack Black. - Hello, Jack Black. - Regards. Thanks for being here. Are you kidding me?
Thanks for having me. It is a mythical welcome. Alright, this is how this is going to work. We have two Santa hats. I have one of them - Rhett, there's the other one. - Yes. In a hat we have regular old boring Christmas songs. - This hat. - In the other hat, we have royalty-free instrumental tracks, legal totes... - Oh. - ...for us to use from our music library. Oh, it's hard for me to decide which one to reach for. Do I have a choice? - Well, no... - No, you have to do both. - Oh I got it. - Let's reach-- Let's take turns reaching both of them. - Fresh. - Put that together to create a fantastic new Christmas song. - Oh, that's exciting. - No heating. - No rehearsal. - Yes.
No planning. - We keep it tough. - You are excited? - Yes, it sounds fine? I feel good about this. Okay, I'm going to go first and I'm going to take my Christmas song. - Well. - Looks like he peeked out. - Don't look, man. - Well. It looked like you were looking-- yes, there you have it. And then... what is that? Pickup police, this way. "Joy to the world." - Bored. - Yes, that's what I was going to say. And... without peeking out. My song is going to be "Seattle Grunge." Seattle grunge style. - Here we go. - Go ahead, Rhett.
Beat him. (drums, bass) ♪ Oh yeah ♪ ♪ Oh yeah ♪ ♪ Joy to the world ♪ ♪ The Lord has come ♪ ♪ May the earth receive her King ♪ - (grunge guitar) - ♪ May every heart prepare Its room ♪ ♪ And heaven and angels sing ♪ ♪ And heaven and angel ♪ ♪ And heaven and angel ♪ ♪ And heaven and angels sing ♪ ♪ And heaven and angels sing ♪ ♪ And heaven and heaven and the angels sing ♪ ♪ And get her room ready ♪ ♪ Yes ♪ Jack: Yes! Damn, that was hot. That was pretty good. Color me impressed, man. There was... there was something like Springsteen. Yes, it really fits. They came together in a really unusual way expected. - Like a zombie dance. - I think we might have... we might have a Christmas hit on our hands. - Yes. - Yes, we do.
Alright, Link, your turn, brother. - Me second. Everything's fine. - Oh man. Here we go. - Oh, this is-- - Can you get off duty? This is the style. - Well. - So the style is called "Opening Night". Is that a style? - I think that's the name of the track. - Opening-- "Opening Night" is the name of the track. - These are only track names. - Oh, sure. And then what's the tired old song? "O Come, All Ye Faithful." I've heard of that one. Now sing it opening night style. (laughter) (echoing) Good, come on! (fanfare playing) ♪ Oh... ♪ ♪ Da, da, dum, dum, dum ♪ ♪ Ah ♪ ♪ Any minute now ♪ ♪ Let's ♪ ♪ Gather faithfully ♪ ♪ Yeah ♪ ♪ Come on, come on ♪ ♪ Here come on! ♪ ♪ Oh ♪ ♪ Come all you faithful ♪ ♪ Joyful and triumphant ♪ ♪ Oh come, oh come to ♪ ♪ Bethlehem, yes ♪ ♪ Bethlehem, yes ♪ ♪ Come and behold ♪ ♪ Born the king of angels ♪ ♪ Oh, come, let us adore him! ♪ ♪ Oh come, let us adore him! - (cheers, applause) - Wow. - Wow. - Yeah. - That was strong. - Quite an introduction on that.
Yeah, but I was like, "When is it going to drop?" That was one of those, as soon as you started we knew it was like Broadway style. That's what "Opening Night" means. - Now we know what it means. - Wow. - It's okay, Jack. - '50s Broadway. And then it went crazy profanity at the end. - Okay, here we go. Ready? - Christmas songs on this side. - I like to shake them. - Shake it. What song are you going to change? I'm excited. "Twelve Days of Christmas". This is a powerful gem that I was thinking about today because what if there was… no one celebrates all twelve days?
I don't even know what that means. They would be many gifts. Everyone only celebrates the one day of Christmas. And if you're half Jewish and half Christian, like me, that's 20 days of gifts, bro. - Go at your pace. - Okay, "Twelve Days of Christmas" plus "Lovin' Chill." "Cold love." And since we know, I don't need to know what that means. - Right. - Mm-hm. - I'll find out when the music starts. - Right. (no music) (echoing) Am I supposed to say something? How are you? Did the music just start? Am I supposed to say ready? Ready. (slow R&B play) ♪ On the first day of Christmas my true love sent me ♪ ♪ A partridge in a pear tree ♪ ♪ On the second day of Christmas my true love sent me ♪ ♪ Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree ♪ ♪ Oh, ow-ow ♪ ♪ Uh ♪ ♪ On the third day of Christmas my true love sent me ♪ ♪ Three French hens ♪ ♪ Two turtle doves ♪ ♪ And a partridge in a pear tree ♪ ♪ You know it's true ♪ ♪ And that's the end of the song ♪ ♪ We're not going to sing anymore ♪ ♪ Thank you... ♪ - (music stops) - (laughs) - ♪ You... ♪ - (laughs) Whoo.
Wow. Once you... once you get the partridge in the pear tree, you won't need the other gifts. Because I think we knew where he was going for the next nine days. Did I stop short? Because it seemed like I only did three of the twelve. You left me wanting more, but I was very happy with what I got. Maybe you'll get it back and you can finish. - Yeah. - Oh, man, look at this. I have powers. Wow, my God. That's... that's functional, Jack. I did that with my... with my powers. Sorry, I didn't realize-- I accidentally kicked it.
And then I... okay. Alright here we go. Here is my song. "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem". Mm-hm, okay. Royalty free track. Oh, that…was that royalty? No, that was the song. I never heard that one. "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem". Nashville Blvd. - Oh man. - Mm-hm. I hope this is what I think it is. I think there's going to be some country gravy coming up. Twang. Beat him. (country music playing) Oh yeah. ( hums ) ♪ Oh, little town of Bethlehem ♪ ♪ How we still see you lying ♪ ♪ On your deep and dreamless sleep ♪ ♪ The silent stars pass by ♪ ♪ Yet in the dark streets shines ♪ ♪ The eternal light ♪ ♪ The hopes And the fears of all years ♪ ♪ They meet with you tonight ♪ ♪ Oh, little town of Bethlehem ♪ ♪ How we still see you lying ♪ ♪ Upon your deep, dreamless sleep ♪ ♪ The silent stars pass by ♪ ♪ Town of Bethlehem ♪ ♪ Oh, little town of Bethlehem ♪ ♪ You are so small ♪ ♪ But you are so big in our hearts ♪ ♪ You are so big ♪ ♪ You are big in our hearts ♪ ♪ Yes, you are big in my heart ♪ ♪ You are big in my soul ♪ ♪ But you're really small ♪ ♪ On the map ♪ ♪ I'm going to end this now ♪ - (music stops) - (laughter) "You're small on the map, but you're big in our hearts"?
That's good. That was not in the original. - No, it was not. - You took liberties. That had a really good vibe to it, almost like a Dolly vibe. You stayed on script for, like, the first half, and then you went off the road. It was like, "Wait a second." I couldn't help it, man. that guitar - All good. - Was strong. You were speaking from the heart. - Well. - Speak in tongues there. I'm going to give an update on "Up On The Housetop". Yes you are. And I'm going to use a royalty free track titled "Tech Intrigue Boyee." - (Link stammers) - (laughs) Tech Intrigue.
My favorite kind of intrigue. Alright here I go.

It was amazing how that genre fit right in with the clickity-click click, click. ♪ Ho ho ho ♪ - ♪ Clickity-click click ♪ - That was amazing. - Is it my turn now? - Yeah. - Let me have some of that. - Bring out... - I have... I'm going to... - ...a tired Christmas carol. The first one-- "Metal March". Well, that must be the genre. That is the genre. That's going to be some heavy metal styles.
Metallic March. And that's right up my alley there. Let's see what we have here. "Silent Night." A little juxtaposition occurred. "Metal March" and "Silent Night". Yes. Now I'm nervous. Beat him. (playing heavy metal) (growling) ♪ Silent night! ♪ ♪ Holy night ♪ ♪ Everything is calm ♪ ♪ And everything is bright ♪ ♪ Round virgin ♪ ♪ Mother and child ♪ ♪ Holy infant ♪ ♪ So tender and tender ♪ ♪ Take off his head! ♪ ♪ Tear him to pieces! ♪ ♪ Virgin round ♪ ♪ Mother and son! ♪ Rhett: Wow! - Thanks. Thanks. Oh my. - Oh my. - Oh man, dude... That was the least silent night I've ever witnessed. OMG. What happened to Santa Claus? I think it's over for today.
It was a voluntary sacrifice in... in the name of metal. I think I left some esophageal tissue on the dance floor. We will pick it up and ship it. Thank you Mr. Jack Black for rocking out with us. And "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" is in theaters today. Stick around to see more of Mr. Jack Black as we find out his big secret. shh. Link: Hat, hat, hooray! You can get a GMM baseball cap at mythical.store. You can also get other things. But isn't this hat cool?
