Jack Black took his kids for a visit to Caine's Arcade, the elaborate cardboard and duct tape creation of the coolest 9-year-old in America.

His son Sammy came back feeling pretty inspired, so he created his own arcade game called "Speedball." In a home video uploaded to YouTube, Sammy gives Black a few pointers: "Watch out for these guys. They're the blockers and they block you."
