Jack Black takes starring role in new Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks video – watch
Comedian, actor and Tenacious D member Jack Black has taken a starring role in the new Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks video for their single ‘Senator’. Scroll down to watch the video.

Appearing as the titular sleazy politician, Black wields a cattle prod before coming to a messy end as an uninvited house party guest.

A winner was recently chosen in the contest to help Stephen Malkmus find a radio-friendly replacement for the word 'blowjob', which features in 'Senator'.

Running an online competition, fans were invited to suggest a new word which could fit into the line of the song: "I know what the senator wants – what the senator wants is a blowjob".

Malkmus revealed the winning entry to be 'corn dog' during a show at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles. He went on to say that it was chosen as 1980s hardcore band Minutemen sometimes called themselves 'corn dogs', reports Pitchfork.

'Senator' is taken from The Jicks' fifth album, 'Mirror Traffic', which was produced by Beck and was released this summer.

Of the new album, Malkmus says:

This record is relatively approachable. Beck and I were both burned out on the heavy rocking style, and playing to the strengths of a melody seemed like a way to go.
