Jack White's all business when it comes to making music, but he actually has a great sense of humor (you kind of have to if you collaborate with Tenacious D). On Thursday (September 26), The Raconteurs frontman showcased his dry sense of humor in a sketch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The short clip begins with the rockstar and talk show host playing an intense game of chess beside a fireplace, both dressed in old timey suits. As things begin to really heat up, the camera zooms out to show that each piece is actually a grape. Fallon thinks he has White right where he wants him. "Check" he says with a smirk, popping a green grape into his mouth. Unable to admit defeat, White decks Fallon in the face and stomps on his chest once he hits the ground. We see the grape pop out of Fallon's mouth. White catches it in midair and declares "Checkmate, b**ch" as he eats his prize. It's absolutely ridiculous. And hilarious.

Watch the sketch below.

Over the summer, The Raconteurs released their comeback album HELP US STRANGER. His final show with The White Stripes also recently was released as a live album.
