There are a few things you should never do to Jack White. Taunting might be at the top of the list. The Raconteurs frontman proved as much on Thursday night (Sept. 26) during a mostly silent bit on The Tonight Show called “Grape Chess.”
The premise was pretty simple: White and host Jimmy Fallon went head-to-head in a friendly parlor game of chess where the rooks and queens were replaced with green and red grapes. Simple enough, but when Fallon called “check” and popped one of Jack’s green guys into his mouth, well, things got a lot less gentlemanly.
The Raconteurs recently wrapped up a string of U.S. dates in support of their recent Help Us, Stranger album, with dates slated to rev up again on Oct. 3 at the ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas.
Watch the shocking conclusion below.
