What was Sean Lock's Carrot in a Box game?
The moment happened during a Christmas special episode of the quiz show 8 Out of 10 Cats.
It centred around a bluffing game, in which both Sean and co-star Jon Richardson were presented with their own box, one of which contained a carrot.
One comic would look in their box and then convince the other to swap the box or not, with the aim of the game being to end up with the box with the carrot in it.
Sean looked first, and said: “I’ll keep this, it’s got the carrot in.”
Jon chose to swap the boxes, telling his opponent: “Can I just say, at this point if there’s no carrot in that box, you are a genius.”
It then turned out that Sean had been bluffing, with the comic pretending to twiddle an imaginary moustache as his plan was unveiled.
Jon then mock stormed out of the studio in response.
