Jack Black will join the Yo Gabba Gabba gang — possibly his original ancestors; investigation ongoing — for the kiddie show’s April 3 episode, “New Friends.” Press play below for a sneak peek of the episode’s ending: Black’s transformation into a schlubbier DJ Lance and his dramatic, Grease-like exit. You can also check out an exclusive clip of Black’s disco-inspired “Dancey Dance” teach-along over at
