Jack Black took to Instagram to challenge Chris Hemsworth to a “battle of the jams” after Black accused the “Thor: Ragnorak” actor of stealing a track from “School of Rock” in his newly-released movie.
Black, 48, posted a video online which saw him tell Hemsworth, 34: “You know in School of Rock when I sing a part of that monstrous Led Zeppelin jam ‘Immigrant Song’ and it’s super bitching and like the raddest part of the movie?”
“Well, it’s come to my attention that someone kind of stole that chunk of our movie and put it in their movie.”
He went on: “That’s right. I’m talking about ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’ Totally bit our style – totally poached our jam – and now they’re parading around town like they thought of it. Well, you don’t get to do that and get away with it, bro.”
“I’m calling you out, Thor. This is a challenge. I challenge you to a battle. A battle of the Jams.”
Hemsworth then replied to Black online, with him posting his own video to hit back: “You’re right – you got me! Guilty as charged. We stole ‘Immigrant Song’ from you, but guess what? You stole it too. And as Oscar Wilde once said, ‘Talent borrows, and genius steals’ so we’re both guilty of the same crime.”
“We would have used your song [Tenacious D‘s ‘Tribute’], but as you said in your song, ‘This is not the greatest song in the world’, so we moved on.”
“You challenge me to a Battle of the Jams?” the Aussie actor went on. “I don’t know what that means! So yeah…let’s do it. Whatever. My place or yours baby, I’m in.”
After Hemsworth accepted the challenge, Black shared his very own entry, alongside the caption: “Daddy’s School Of Ragnaroth from the set of ‘The House With A Clock In It’s Walls.'”
Now it’s over to Hemsworth…
“Thor: Ragnarok” is in theaters now.
