The 40-year-old "comedian" Jack Black went on the "dark side" during the MTV Awards praying to the devil. Black, who was promoting a heavy metal video game called Brütal Legend, asked the "Dear Dark Lord Satan" to bless the rock star nominees with "continued success in the music industry." "I was mortified when Jack Black lead everyone in a prayer to satan. It was no joke," said Samantha Taylor of California. "The audience held hands and did it. I was a fan, but not anymore."
Black made his grand entrace wearing extra muscles and a battle axe.
"During the Awards, I seriously felt as if I were watching a big party celebration that was taking place in satan's den," said the viewer. "It sickened me. I'll never watch anything on MTV channel again. First and last time," said Taylor.

Well, that's queer...
He’s also the one in the gay jesus video on youtube.
look up sick bastard .. his pic is there.
He and these shows intend to shock for humor's sake. If we are beyond being shocked any more, is it humorous? (rhetorically)
As I always say, “Do you think Satan would be this obvious?”
I stopped watching his stuff after he mocked Jesus during the “Prop 8” situation in California. Jack, eternity is a long time to be worshiping in hell...
Ask Viacommie what they have to say about this?
They are the ones behind the “wardrobe malfunction” watercooler moment at the Superbowl.
They are the ones behind the forged National Guard memo October Surprise during the 2004 scampaign.
Whatever happened to “standards and practices”?
Insulting my religion is bigotry. It is protected speech but it is still bigotry and either tolerance is due all or the matter of apologies should never be raised on their networks again.
It doesn’t sound particularly funny but I do believe it was a joke.
And yet a tongue firmly in cheek prayer to Satan? It is a joke.
I hold that this prayer is in the tradition of Robert Johnson, and probably just as authentic. (Robert Johnson reportedly sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads at midnight in order to sing the blues that would serve as a foundation for Rock n Roll).
I think the only thin he did that I remotely enjoyed was “Kung-Fu Panda.”
I’ll stay away from him in the future.
Saying the words is a profession of “faith”. Try telling God “I didn’t REALLY mean it.”
Similarly, at Thanksgiving with family this year, announce “I wanna F*** momma!”
And then say “it was JUST a joke!”.
They will still never forgive you.
Jack: I like your work and I’m sure this was meant as a gag, but dammit, don’t mess with this stuff.
Never pray to Satan even as a joke. Never get anyone else to do the same, especially dumbass teenagers.
Praying for you now Jack. May Christ be with you, and may you know His mercy.
Doesn’t every joke contain a kernel of truth?
If idiots open the door to it, why not?
Personally, I find this creepy.
I have a somewhat twisted sense of humor, but praying to the devil just isn't funny to me in any way, shape or form.
It’s still mocking Christians. Maybe they can get some lions on stage next year.
Viacommie does not care. "we are a cable network" they would say.
There is no room for interance today. This we've been indoctrinated as "truth".
Unless it is religion and that is fair game.
For some fun, take an intollerant statement coming from a progessive's mouth and replace the offending words with ones like queer, nigger, or what ever should equally be offensive.
1) see how long before there is a protest against you and
2) see how long this post lasts because I dared to use such inflamitory words.
Looks like Jack's all 'droided up.
He'll be dead soon.
Enjoy the adulation while you can, Black. An eternity in hell awaits you.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The 40-year-old “comedian” Jack Black went on the “dark side” during the MTV Awards praying to the devil.
Last year the “dark side” was refusing to vote for RINO Romney...
This year it’s something else...
It was vile men and women in Sodom and Gomorrah and it was men and women who cheered for the execution of Jesus.
It isn't always the work of Satan.
"thin"? And Jack Black?
That might have been one of those Freudian slips. And a darn good one.
Looks to me like it could be costuming (concealed at the wrist bracelets)
You're probably right.
Viacom is more than just a “cable network”, they are the parent company to a media empire.
Ever wonder why you don’t see the “classic” reruns on tv anymore? They are owned by Viacom (used to see the logo in the end credits during syndication). They moved them to TV Land where they hold exclusive broadcast now. You can also fork over money to Viacom for DVDs.
And they own SeeBS. And Simon & Schuster. And Hillary Clinton.
However, even a no-talent hack like Jack can succeed, as Hollywood continuously lowers the standards bar.
What a fool. No one in his right mind would utter such words, even in jest.
This won’t be so funny on judgment day.
Anyone have a clip to view if the audience is indeed joining hands and saying it along with him?
One man is a dumbass doing a stunt. A whole audience is a cult of zombies.
He even kind of looks like Rosie O'Donnell.
Freud: “There are no jokes.”
IF Rosie O'Donnell and Jack Black had a kid, this could be it:
34 charged in Craigslist prostitution sting (ABC Action News ^ | 09/15/2009)
Christian Roman emperors fed nonbelievers to the lions also. In case you didn't know.
Agreed about not “praying” to Satan even as a joke.
Reminds me of some movie he was in - I just caught a snippet of it. Seems they had a “magic” guitar pick from Stan that allowed them to play great. They broke the pick and are in tears outside the hall. The owner of the hall comes out and consoles them.
“Satan’s power isn’t in the pick! It is in your heart. It has never left you - you just thought you needed the pick. But Satan is in your heart and will always be there for you. When you see an awesume chick and want to bang her? That’s Satan in your heart. When you want to punch the guy that cut in line - that’s Satan. Don’t you see - he’s still there - now go in there and ROCK!”
I thought it was pretty funny. When I told my wife she thought it was awful!
Roast Attendees Take Umbrage With Stunt By Penn & Teller -article on their sacrilegious stunt (Las Vegas Review Journal Jan 17 2003)
A group walked out of a roast of Amazing Johnathan on Monday after Teller, dressed as Christ on a full-sized cross, entered the room on a cart. A midget dressed as an angel performed a simulated sex act on the near-naked Teller.
Penn Jillette, in a Roman gladiator costume, unveiled the scene by pulling away a "Shroud of Turin" that covered the cross.
It’s a very competitive race to the bottom. Jack Black didn’t even come in first that night. People aren’t even shocked at the depravity anymore. Dark times.
From the part of the article shown in the excerpt:
Black made his grand entrance wearing extra muscles and a battle axe.
Thus the fake muscles (although the young woman next to him doesn't look like a battle axe.)
Just imagine if instead of a satirical prayer to Satan, he led the audience in a satirical version of the Islamic shahada... I think we would see heads literally rolling.
But the truth is not that Jack Black believes it (I hope).
The joke is that more than a few hard-core metal heads believe it. That is why it resonated.
I remember the guy and his friend that shot themselves in the head after listening to Ozzie.
One guy lived and sued Ozzie because of the music.
The documentary was crazy. They guy was drooling out of what was left of his face and lower jaw.
I think he suicided by pills a year after the documentary.
It seemed to me more of a spoof of heavy metal/satanism. They don’t always go hand in hand, but as time goes on you have to become darker and darker to be on the edge. And Black was making fun of that stereotypical image.
Dressing up like Elvis and shaking your hips isn’t very rebellious anymore and surely I wasn’t the only rebellious teen on FR.
That being said, my Christian daughters were like “I’m not saying those words!”. Good girls.
Satan’s biggest lie is convincing the youth of the world he doesn’t exist.
I remind everyone that Jack Black is a comedian. That said, be careful, Jack. Jesus will forgive you if you repent...yes, even for playing Him in that anti-Prop-8 video, let alone this...because He may be holy and just, but He is also merciful, and perhaps most importantly in your case, He has a sense of humor. Satan, on the other hand...
If more than half the people think it’s a joke because it’s made to look like comedy, I guess he wasn’t being all that obvious.
Satan’s tricky like that.
“Looks like Jack’s all ‘droided up.”
Too much Star Wars?
Good for Jack Black. It’s about time they came out of the closet and admitted what we always knew.
People joke about some things to their own perile.
Stop that! I just had lunch.
I think the lady missed his joke, wether it was funny or not.
