Way back in November 2008, the CBS comedy Big Bang Theory had an episode called The Lizard-Spock Expansion where the characters played a game of their own creation called Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock, a variation on the classic game.
In a recent video interview to promote his upcoming film Margin Call, Zachary Quinto, who played the young Spock in the new 2009 Star Trek movie, was asked by the interviewer to play the game. Quinto apparently had never heard of it, but played it anyway. Check out the humorous video here below.
I’m quite surprised that Quinto had never heard of Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock, since it was all abuzz when the episode aired and spawned infographics and t-shirts, but I’m even more surprised that no one’s ever asked him to play the game before now!
