I'm Jack Black. Today on Blue Peter, I'm not only going to be answering
questions from your head. I'm going to be teaching these guys some
Hello. Also today, we're launching a competition, mainly between you
and me. Isn't CBBC Summer Sports Stars 2011. It was jolly good fun.
Not one of us took it way too seriously. Now welcome back a man
who has become a legend. You will no doubt have seen over the past
few days that our Andy has been setting new world records. Let's
give him the welcome he deserves - Andy Akinwolere!
APPLAUSE Thank you very much. You know
you've done something all right when you come out of the shed with
a bit of smoke. It's all good. Let's talk about it, two world
records. Yeah, it was really G I have to say something quickly now,
because we first set out to the Maraina Trench. We didn't get to do
it because of logistic reasons. We did something just as good. We swam
over the Pilau Trench. A lovely dismount. A belly flop.
The swim was lovely. It was warm. We were blessed because the
conditions were perfect. Usually that part of the world, it's rainy,
really stormy. Perfect conditions. But undoubtedly a very intimidated
feat. You even made the news. was brilliant. I was swimming over
8,000 feet of water. Like, I had divers under me. They were filming
me to make sure there weren't any sharks. I looked down and those
guys went down 30 metres. I couldn't believe what was happening
around me. It was bizarre. I had to take a bit of time off just to
realise what was going on. It was fantastic. When you're speaking
8,000 metres above the bottom of something, I couldn't do that in a
boat. This is a strange fact. If I drowned it would have taken me
three-and-a-half hours to get to the bottom. Another world record!
Watch it, it's a Blue Peter special on June 20th. See exactly what
happened. I couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you for
getting me this far. Andy off the telly everybody. Two world records.
Now something else with legendary status.
Questions from your head! This is the part of the show where we
answer questions from your very strange heads. Today, we have a
Hollywood superstar helping us out. Everybody, Jack Black, is back!
# You're the best around # Nothing's going to keep you down
Welcome to the show. The applause startled her. Sit next to papa.
She's used to the showbiz lifestyle. I've been on the receiving end of
your master skills of kung fu. You have the mastery of knowledge as
well. Your first question is there. Fire away. It would be my pleasure.
BeigecookingGuava asks "What is the world's smelliest cheese?"
going with stilton or Danish blue. They are stinky. But not the
stinkiest. In 2004 scientists at Cranfield University carried out
tests with special electronic noses and concluded that the French trees
-- cheese Vieux Boulogne is the smelliest. It is like old ear wax.
It's pretty good. Master of knock, -- knowledge all from his head. Now
this one says "How many 2p coins are in circulation?" As of April
2010 there were 6,664,000,000 That's worth a total of
�133,265,000. That's a lot of 2ps. That is. Next one, Ameobi asks "--
AmethystCyclingGrape asks "Do cats have bones in their tails?" Yeah,
this is handy because I happen to be a cat expert too. Yes they do.
According to Cats Protection, a cat's tail is an extension of its
spine. It consists of between 16 to 21 small bones called vertebrae
allowing the tail to be flexible. Happy cat, when you see the tail go
vertical like this and a little question mark. The guy has
knowledge. Those pale into insignificance when it comes to the
next part of the show. Everybody, it's time for the big question.
Look at that, it gets a drum roll and everything. That question comes
from GoldBreezyPhoenix. I love these names people. What is the
longest time ever that anyone has stayed under water for? I presume
that's a holding their breath thing. I held my breath for two minutes
once. That might be the record actually. If it's a world record it
needs to be more impressive. Maybe two-and-a-half. Impossible to go
more than four minutes. Do you know the answer? Our master of kung fu
probably does. E-mail us or if you're watching on BBC One, if you
get in touch we might read it out on the show.
Because we know you like cats, I have brought back the cat. I have
brought you a present. This is your second appearance on Blue Peter,
we're going to upgrade you to a silver badge. Give the man some
There you go. Silver - nice! Thank you so much. I have to ask you
about Kung Fu Panda 2. I loved the first. A master of kung fu and
badges. How on earth do you top the first one, that was great? Kung Fu
Panda 2, we had to, yeah, we had pressure because the first was so
good. What we did was put in even better kung fu moves, the artistry
is even of a higher degree and also it's funnier and finally there's an
amazing message in there. What's the message? The message is inner
peace is the key to happiness. can have a quick look. Check it out.
Yee-haw! The dragon warrior. panda? That's impossible. My fist
hungers for justice. That was my fist.
I miss today and it's in 3-D. going to test your kung fu skills
later on. We've got you a fancy jacket and everything. This time
last year we held a competition called CBBC Star Striker. It Qom
very competitive. People took it very seriously. Mark was crowned
the winner. This year, we didn't want to let you down. We have
another competition. There were two teams. It happened in Brighton and
some of us got a bit carried away. Sunny Brighton, home of CBBC's
summer sports staurz -- stars 20011. It's here that -- 2011. It's here
that the teams will battle it out in cool summer sports. We've
gathered together the best sports stars CBBC has to offer. Many my
team from live and deadly Naomi. From hotel Trouble Dominique.
Sportsround Ore. From all offer the place, Ed. From the CBBC office Ian.
And from Roar, Jonny. For the oney team the prestigious
CBBC Summer Sports Stars trophy. For the losing captain a messy
forfeit in the deck chair of doom. Welcome to the CBBC Summer Sports
Stars 2011. Come on! The first game has been picked by me, dodgeball.
I've changed it a bit, and brought you to the beach. I give you beach
dodgeball. Dodgeball is a fast paced game
which started in American schools. You throw balls at your opponent to
take them out of the game. It's an international sport. Everybody
welcome Ryan and Mike. Ryan is the captain of the England squad and
has the fastest recorded dodgeball throw at 62mph. And Mike, he takes
the game out to schools and encourages kids to get involved in
this action-packed sport. What skill doz we need? You need to be
fast, agile. Moving around a lot. You need to work as a team. No one
individual, so working well. Let's get to it.
With an hour of training before our big match, we have a lot to learn.
The game starts with a sprint to the centre to get hold of the three
balls in play. Once you've got a ball, the idea is
to throw it at your opponents. If your opponent is hit, they are
out. Try to throw at the front leg. Aim for the shins.
If your opponent catches the ball, you are out.
The aim of the game is all in the name - dodgeball. Dodge that ball!
If I lose this, I will never hear the end of it. I don't think team
Helen stands a chance. Ian is a Dark Horse. I know he come as cross
as comedy, but he's fast. Ed does a weird dance when he throws and runs.
That will put them off. Naomi is competitive. Jonny a astrong.
try to make the comedy card, but when it comes to the match they'll
concentrate. I hope they will. neek... Ah, have to get back to
that later (Dominique) Time to gather our strength for the big
match. Here it is the first event in CBBC's Summer Sports Stars. The
winner gets five points on the leaderboard. I've been given the
job of the tank at the back, to launch the missiles. I'm scared.
hand-eye coordination is famously terrible. Thfrpblgts means
everything to me. I'm quite happy. Have you to make the best of what
you've got. For all you skinny people out there Stirling is
bringing it home. Skeleton! match today will be the best of
five three-minute games. Each game is one when either team has no
five seconds. First attack, nothing, no hits. That's a poor effort
really. Naomi is breaking from the back,
he's caught up. She's out. Text book catching from Barney there.
Oh, Ore's out. The power house is out! Helen retaliates, clumsy from
Barney. He's gone. Both captains are out now. Chaos. He's out. He's
out. 1-0 team Barney. Game two, another explosive start.
Team Ellen on the -- team Helen on the back foot. All three balls
aimed at Helen, that's bullying, but excellent dodgeball. Helen, you
are out. So is Barney - both captains out
again! The balls are flying everywhere. It's like the lottery
machine out there. Seconds left. Jonny catches. Ore out! Team Barney
win again. We both threw it to him, so low, low, low. Just got to soak
up the pressure guys. Dodge it and then explode If we can get Ore out,
everyone else loses confidence. You're right. It's crunch time for
team Helen. They have to win this one.
Careful Jonny. She's a wild one. Wild or not she can't throw for
toffee. That's got to be the dodge of the
day. Ore's on fire. Dominique's out. No wonder she's facing the wrong
way, turning her back on the action and her team-mates too.
Ore the power house taking out Ed. And Ian with a final catch, that's
a much needed point for team Helen. We had four, they had two. We only
did it because it makes good telly. Good telly or not, Helen's team
back in the game. Five points on the board to the winners of this
event. The tank launches a missile. Oh, nothing. Ore has Jonny bad. He
takes it out on Naomi, right on the shins. It's Helen, nothing.
Dominique takes Helen out and Ian's gone. It's all over, amazing!
feels great to be winner at the moment. Helen will not be happy
about losing here. That victory was down to me and my distracting dance.
Weakest link right there. High five Weakest link right there. High five
for the team. Well done Barney, I'm pleased that
you won. And well done orange team even though we lost. Thanks Helen.
It's four events in total. Three more to go. You might win the next
three, you never know. It's all to play for. Yes. One more thing for
us to say, before we go, Barney army! So after a win, Barney has
five points on the leaderboard. Next time on CBBC Summer Sports
Stars with everything to play for... We need to win this one. It has
worked out quite well for Helen. The competition hots up when we
take to the high seas. Thfrpblgts will come down to who can hold
their nerve. Be positive. There's thrills, spills and an accident
that threatens to put one of our contestants out of the competition.
Who will reign supreme and who will be one step near ter a gunging in
the deck chair of doom? You lost a little game there did you?
Is this a world first, Helen Skelton lost something? I let
myself down. I let my team down. I'm not comfortable with losing.
Helen is a hero. Call her superwoman. That's lovely. Really
nice. It says, when she loses she scares the pants off me. Ore is a
big dude. He's stacked. Look, park your gloating. All right, this is
the first chapter of the competition. You have a long way to
go to get your hands on this trophy. I'm going to hand out -- hang out
with an international movie star. All right for some.
Hello Jack. Hello. Unnecessary that gloating. It was a bit. Unnecessary
boys. Right now, as we know, in movies actors have to do research
to find out about their parts, is that true of actors in animated
movies? Of course, it's true. It's true in any kind of acting. It's
important to do research. I'm glad you said that. We're about to test
your kung fu skills in this: Jack versus black belt.
Good that, isn't it? I should point out that I wore my white belt for
fashion. I have a black belt at home. This is more summery. This is
more, yeah exactly. We have recorded three kung fu experts
performing three kung fu moves. I'm going to give you the name of the
move and we'd like to see if you can perform it. I know all the
moves, no problem. The first move is the third chi sau. I remember it
is the third chi sau. I remember it like it was yesterday. It goes a
little something like this. It's called the snake meets the tiger.
Here is the snake meets the tiger! OK that was Jack's version. Let's
bad. Luca wants you to perform the wooden dummy.
Do you remember that? I'm doing it. No, no. Just kidding. The wooden
dummy is an advanced move. It goes a little bit like this. It's a high
kick with a snap snap. Oh, it's Yours had more energy. You pointed
it out, it's true, mine had more energy. The third and final move,
you can maybe redeem yourself, see if you can get close to this one.
It's from Tia. It's chain punches with pop-up kick. This is the
perfect move if you're attacked by four different asail yants. You be
one of them. There's one, there's two, three, four.
yourselves a nice little dance together. I failed the test. But I
think you'll admit my moves were entertaining. You succeeded on many
other levels. Jack, thank you very much. Thank you.
Questions from your head! What a legend. Now let's talk about the
big question from today's question from your head. This was sent in by
GoldBreezyPhoenix: What is the longest time ever that anyone has
stayed under water for? Jack reckons he can stay under for two-
and-a-half minutes Max. I don't have a clue. We have asked to you
get in touch. An e-mail here which says "I heard it was around 21
minutes". Another one here from I don't know who this is from,"
Apparently a man in Asia can deep dive and stay under water for nine
minutes." That's a massive difference between nine minutes and
21 minutes. They're just guesses. have no idea. I know we have a
master of kung fu and knowledge with us today. You're sad that you
missed that one move. I had one other move that was going to hit it.
That is brilliant. We've had 9 minutes and 21 minutes. Which is
the real one? Both are impossible. I'm going to say nine minutes.
sorry to do this to you on live TV, if you could shuffle up your bum a
little. There... That's right my magazine. How to breathe under
water magazine. The world record for someone holding their breath
under water was 220 minutes and 21 seconds a man from Brazil managed
that last year. That's incredible. It was under my bum! You can
breathe from anywhere these days. That's the answer to your question,
20 minutes and 21 seconds. Don't try that at home. If you want to
ask any questions, get in touch. Go online and while you're there,
there's a new section called "jokes for Jack". You can tell Jack a joke
and try to make him laugh. Have a go. That's all we have time for
today. I'm very sad to say goodbye to you. You're a pleasure to have
the studio. It's fun to be here. round of applause for Jack!
APPLAUSE You could teach the boys your moves.
You want to use those on the dance floor That's a bit of a river dance.
Join us next time when we see who wins the next round of CBBC summer
