In a new tour mini-documentary, Tenacious D visits Jack White in Nashville to bring a long-sought-after collaboration to fruition: Jack Black + Jack White = Jack Gray…

The Internet has pined for a Jack White/Jack Black summit for years. The “Jack Gray” collaboration rumor mill picked up steam earlier this year when Tenacious D posted a photo of White with the duo on Instagram with the caption, “we hired a new merch guy.”

In the nearly 18-minute video, after rocking their set at Lollapalooza, Tenacious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass head to Nashville to visit Jack White’s Third Man Records store/performance venue/headquarters. After a White-led tour of the facility and a quick photoshoot, Black and Gass head back to Jack White’s house to record a new song.

As Black explains to the camera (after singing an appropriate few lines of Michael Jackson‘s “Black or White”, “Jack White just gave us the tour of the Third Man headquarters. It’s [an] amazing facility. It’s a recording studio. It’s an art house/gallery. And now we’re heading over to Jack White’s house to record a single. … Me and Cage [Kyle Gass] have been working on a jam. It’s not quite done, it needs a little work. But I think that’s where Jack White’s gonna come in and help us pull it over the finish white. … This is a legendary co-lab. The D with Jack White. Everyone’s been waitin’ for it. Now it’s here.”

While video recording was not allowed at White’s house, the doc picks back up with Tenacious D leaving the property after finishing the session, Black clearly jazzed about the experience. Amid recaps of White’s unusual decor, Black gushes, “I think our song is the kickin’ chicken too… It’s a stone-cold jam.”
