Friends, Episode IV of the Hell O'Clock News is upon us, which could mean only one thing: more details from our friends in hell about Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny. Actually, this installment gets a little bit side-tracked by a set visit from King Kong, who the guys from Hell O'Clock bring in because, you know, who doesn't want to see their old co-stars? Jack Black is sure to be thrilled, right? Um, no. It turns out that Kong is sort of a bitter asshole, and whole thing goes horribly awry (albeit in a hilarious way). It's always fun to see Jack Black put himself in these absurd situations, and then pretend to take them seriously. He's being interview by a guy with horns in front of a blue screen, for God's sake, and yet he doesn't even grin - impressive stuff indeed.

Though the Hell O'Clock News updates rarely actually have much to do with The Pick of Destiny, they're clever and funny enough to have me looking forward to a movie I had no interest in before I started keeping up with them. Assuming I'm not the only one who responds to the clips in that way, that's damn good advertising. The movie doesn't come out until next fall, so there's time for many more looks at hell's own news network, and many more viewers to convert.
