When Jack Black pretty much does anything online, it tends to go viral – and that rings true for his latest venture: a brilliant new music video for his ballad from the newly-released Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Already clocking at over 6 million views on YouTube, the Tenacious D frontman’s song Peaches – which was co-written by Jack, plus the film’s directors Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, along with Eric Osmond and John Spiker – hears Jack as his character Bowser reflecting on his absolute love for Princess Peach (played by Anya Taylor-Joy). Even more amusingly, Peaches will actually be eligible for Best Original Song at next year’s Oscars, as reported by Variety.

Watch Jack Black’s video for Peaches, in which he’s wearing a rather fetching Bowser-esque green suit, below:
