Jack Black And Jack White Have Finally Met, Which Is Quite Satisfying

Jack Black has, at last, met Jack White - and if you don't find that oddly satisfying then I don't know what's wrong with you.

Black and White have never publicly met before, despite the fact they float in similar circles through their respective musical projects - prompting some (me) to speculate the pair may be arch foes.

However, it seems they got on well after bumping into each other at Heathrow Airport earlier this week.

Both Jacks recently played London gigs, with White performing with The Raconteurs at All Points East festival and Black playing Wembley Arena with band Tenacious D.

The latter band shared a picture on Instagram of Black stood alongside White, who held aloft a Tenacious D t-shirt.

The photo was captioned: "We hired a new merch guy."

Predictably, comments came flooding in - with the majority of fans seemingly hoping the encounter may prompt some kind of musical collaboration.

...Black And White? Jack Attack? Jack Grey?

The Raconteurs have also posted a picture of the meet up, and Jack Black commented: "Can't wait for that new album to drop. Safe travels Raconteurs!"

Indeed, The Raconteurs are touring that new album solidly through until October, so we may have to wait a while for that collaboration... that probably isn't going to happen.

In truth, the other Jack is pretty busy too. He launched his own gaming channel, Jablinski Games, on YouTube in December and already it has amassed more than four million subscribers.

Unlike most gaming channels, it contains very little gaming content, but hey, the guy has got many strings to his bow.

Last September he was also honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, giving an acceptance speech during which he semi-threatened to retire and called Donald Trump a piece of shit.

He said: "I've wanted one of this things for so long. Since I was a kid I thought, 'Oh man, if you get one of those stars on the sidewalk, that means you've made it,' and I feel like I've finally grasped that sweet brass ring.

"And the question is, where do we go now? In the immortal words of Axl Rose, where do we go now?

"Seriously, it's time to pass the torch to the Uzi Verts and the Lil Peeps and the Tommy and Sammy Blacks of the world.

"So I'm just going to do Jumanji 2, Kung Fu Panda - one more of those. Three more Tenacious D albums, and then I'm sorry but that is it. Then I retire."

He continued: "Unless something really cool comes around. Like if a Jim Jarmusch comes a-knockin', you know I gotta party with The Much!

"But then I will go right back into retirement. Daniel Day Lewis style.

"Anyway, I love you all so much. Except for Donald Trump; he's a piece of shit. Peace out, love you!"
