Jack Black Got Beaned On The Head By An Overly Enthusiastic ‘The Price Is Right’ Contestant

The Price is Right kicked off its annual Celebrity Charity Week on Monday morning with an appearance by Jack Black, who was playing for the Society of Women Engineers. He eventually won $73,513 for his charity, but as the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished, so his victory didn’t come without also being slightly traumatized in the process.

During the Showcase Showdown, a particularly enthusiastic contestant named Andrew impressively managed to spin 95 cents on the big wheel. Not too shabby! However in his glory he attempted to high five the Kung Fu Panda star, and… let’s just say that it didn’t go as planned.

Thankfully he didn’t seem to hit Black too hard, who played it off by faux falling on the ground ala Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. Andrew also managed to clean house in the end (because his estimating prowess is apparently way more skilled than his coordination), winning his showcase that included trips to Costa Rica and Argentina — so the embarrassment and horror of punching one half of Tenacious D in the head was likely short lived.

The rest of the Celebrity Charity Week contestants will include Wilmer Valderrama, Jane Lynch, Julie Bowen, and Robin himself, Chris O’Donnel, but with any luck their appearances will be slightly less eventful.
