♫ Viewer beware, you’re in for a scare! Muuuuaaahahahahahahaaaaaaa ♫
Welcome to Nerdist’s very own Camp Nightmare, guys and ghouls—and trust us when we say you’re in for a ghastly musical treat. Because how could anything involving Goosebumps and Jack Black be anything but, right? It’s with great joy—and more than a few earworms—that we present to you: The Bumps Gonna Goose Ya, our homage to those ’90s, post-movie music videos of yesteryear.
In Sony’s new film Goosebumps, which hits theaters on October 16, Jack Black plays R.L. Stine, the author behind the eponymous series of terrifying children’s books. While you’ll have to wait to see the spooks and scares that Black and company have up their sleeve, you can watch the post-credits rap right now.
We don’t want to say too much because it’s much more fun to experience first-hand. So gather all your friends around—the Ghost Next Door, the Girl Who Cried Monster, the Scarecrow you met on your way to HorrorLand—and settle in for a wickedly good time. Oh and don’t forget to dance til you die! (You always do what Slappy says.)
Directed by Ben Mekler and written by Mekler and Freddy Scott, The Bumps Gonna Goose Ya even features the rapping skills/sartorial genius of our very own Malik Forté. Now we just need to get Malik emceeing on a track about The Baby-Sitters or Redwall, and our childhoods will be complete.
Admit it: are you as obsessed with The Bumps Gonna Goose Ya as we are? Let us hear it in the comments below.
