To cleanse the palate. The first time I watched this viral clip, I nearly quit after 20 seconds because I thought I knew what was going to happen. The contestants have to make baskets in order to have their turn on the tic-tac-toe board. But what if they’re … simply unable to score, even standing right under the hoop? It was going to be a cavalcade of embarrassing missed lay-ups, with the tic-tac-toe game ending in a draw because neither side managed to put a single piece on the board.
But that’s not what happens at all. What happens is much worse.
If you’re a young man or woman, watch this and ask yourself: Do I really want to bring a child into a world where this is possible?
