In a groundbreaking moment, multi-talented actor and musician Jack Black recently performed his chart-topping song “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie live in front of an ecstatic audience. Out of all the elements of Illumination’s animated Super Mario film, “Peaches” undeniably left the strongest impression on pop culture. The song gained such immense popularity among fans that it even climbed the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

In addition to “Peaches,” Black treated the audience to another musical delight during the concert. His Tenacious D bandmate, Kyle Gass, joined him on stage to perform “Video Games,” the duo’s latest song. Released earlier this year, “Video Games” captures Black’s own passion for gaming, referencing titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War, and Fallout 4, among others. Fans who attended the Game Awards concert were undoubtedly thrilled, feeling that they truly got their money’s worth.
As for The Super Mario Bros. Movie itself, the film is now available for streaming on various platforms, and Blu-Ray and DVD versions are also accessible. Excitingly, it is set to debut on Peacock this week, starting from June 28th, offering fans even more opportunities to experience the fantastical world of Super Mario on the screen.
