Preteen Jack Black Pitches For Atari in ’80s Commercial
A preteen-looking Jack Black delivers his trademarkÂ overexcited deliveryÂ in this 1980s clip for the classic Atari game âPitfall.â It’s hilarious! You gotta give the kid credit for nailing down hisÂ shtickÂ early and sticking to it.Â
For those who werenât around to play it, âPitfallâ was a thrilling âIndiana Jonesâ âesque adventure game about an 8-bit explorer swinging through a swamp trying to avoid alligators, bad guys and, well … falling into pits. And, no, Atari didnât require you to wear a safari hat like Jack is doing here to play, but it always made the game a lot more fun if you did. Canât you see how excited Lil’ Jackie Boy is here?
