On NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, guest Jack Black emerged wearing a Bowser costume that revealed a lot of his private toadstool and koopas, forcing the network censors to awkwardly blur his whole crotch.
During today’s episode of NBC’s daytime talk show, the stars of the upcoming animated Super Mario Bros. Movie appeared to talk about the film and smile a lot as part of the usual media blitz associated with major Hollywood movies. And as part of this “fun” segment on the show, the cast all “tricked” Jack Black, who voices Bowser in the movie, to dress up like the character. Apparently, they told him they were all going to do the same—dress up as their videogame counterparts—and didn’t, leading to network-approved shenanigans via this totally real and very fun “prank” on the actor/comedian/musician/TikTok star.
However, when Jack Black made his entrance, doing all the things you expect the actor to do—like high kick, scream, and dance—things got strange as NBC chose the country wasn’t ready to see the outline of Jack Black’s ball sack on national TV. So when he makes an appearance and starts dancing, his crotch is completely blurred out.
