Jack Black Goosebumps rap video will give you '90s flashbacks

Posted on

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap.” MC Hammer’s “Addams Groove.” Will Smith’s “Wild, Wild West.” Do you miss the bygone days of the 1990s, when it seemed like every youth-targeted movie got a really corny but oddly catchy rap song to go with it?

Probably not, but Jack Black has you covered anyway. The Goosebumps star sings the hook in a new music video for “The Bumps Gonna Goose Ya,” a tongue-in-cheek throwback rap that dutifully name-checks the supernatural characters in the upcoming R.L. Stine-inspired movie.

Nerdist’s Malik Forte does the heavy lifting, spitting rhymes about ghouls and ghosts while rocking an ectoplasm-emblazoned vest. And yes, there are backup dancers.

Watch “The Bumps Gonna Goose Ya” above. Goosebumps opens Oct. 16.
