The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers played at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday. One of the in-game breaks provided some solid entertainment, as well.
Actor and comedian Jack Whitehall was blindfolded and told to take a shot for a prize. Predictably enough, his shot missed and missed badly. But the reaction of the crowd and those running the event said otherwise.
See for yourself.

Whitehall seemed to have fun with it, even poking fun at the experience on Twitter afterwards.

We really have to say, well done to all involved. We could have predicted that the emcee and other on court personnel would do their jobs well. But the crowd’s roars really added to the trick.
