Box of Lies has become one of Jimmy Fallon’s go-to The Tonight Show games, where two players compete to see if they can tell when the other is bluffing about the contents of a mystery box. Who better, then, to play this battle of poker faces than Matt Damon, the man behind amnesiac super spy Jason Bourne? On Wednesday night, they did just that.

Damon did well in his first round. He got a potted bonsai tree filled with miniature gnomes, but told Fallon, “It’s a slinky with a phallic symbol.” Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for Fallon, who has played this game many times by now and saw through Damon’s deception.

Next it was Fallon’s turn, and he got a glass piggy bank full of shrimp. “It’s an everyday thing,” he told Damon. “People have it in their office, at their desks. It’s a paperweight of sorts.” He claimed it was a miniature hot tub filled with figures of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and either Mark Hamill or Justin Bieber (he couldn’t decide). Damon fell for it, and Fallon walked away the two-for-two victor.
