Fans of Jack Black and old school video games will love this Atari commercial!

Watch a frighteningly thin and young Jack Black talk about Pitfall as if he’s just found the Ark of the Covenant!

I guess the Atari ad was a hit for Jack…he’s since gone on to lead the mega-awesome comedy/metal band Tenacious D…as well as starring in hit movies like School Of Rock, King Kong, and The House With A Clock In Its Walls!
