Apparently, Tic-Tac-Toe Is A Lot Harder Than It Looks For These Guys
May 29, 2015
I'm not sure if they were just blinded by the bright lights and cameras, but Blake, the guy playing "O," had several clear chances to win and just never took them. It's almost like they wanted to end in a tie, and the bewildered hosts were forced to figure out who won the prize.
If there's a tic-tac-toe hall of fame somewhere, you can confidently bet every dollar you've got that Blake and Reid from this video aren't ever going to be in it. During a break in the NBA Western Conference Finals between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors, the two young men were randomly selected to take part in a game of tic-tac-toe, with a chance to win a goodie bag from Toyota. The contestants shoot a basket, then grab an "X" or "O" game piece (in this case a Toyota symbol) and place it on the game board to get three in a row.
