Alicia Vikander teaches Jimmy Fallon how to play 'Irish Christmas Eve', and we're confused

Michael Fassbender doesn’t know she plays this.

WHEN ALICIA VIKANDER announced she would be teaching Jimmy Fallon a game called Irish Christmas Eve, we admit we were absolutely intrigued.

Would it involve drunkenly wrapping your scissors into the actual present, then forgetting who the present was for?

Or maybe it would involve giving a family pet a tearful and booze-fuelled rendition of Fairytale of New York?

Frankly, the possibilities were endless.

Interestingly, it involved neither, which is surprising as that is how most of us spend our Christmas Eve, but as the game had no input from Alicia’s Irish husband, Michael Fassbender, we’ll let it slide.

Instead, Jimmy and Alicia spun around on baseball bats – hurls might have been more authentic – and then attempted to smash plates with a bow and arrow.

The spinning was, of course, an attempt to simulate a classic case of the drunken dizzies, but the obliteration of the plates has left us fairly stumped.

We’ll let them take it from here…
