Is there someone you know who you’d trust with your life? Unfortunately, that person is not Jason Momoa for James Corden.
The pair caught up on Corden’s The Late Late Show and Momoa tried to take their ‘trust’ to a whole new level.
The Aquaman star turned up on his motorcycle, decked out in leather. Corden expected the two to go for a joyride, but things took a very sharp twist. Momoa thought it might just be the perfect chance to give the late night host a quick archery lesson.
You can see the full lesson below.
It turns out Momoa isn’t new to archery. He admits his wife, Lisa Bonet, got him into the sport as well as other dangerous target-hitting activities like hatchet throwing.
After Corden fires off a few arrows, the Hawaiian actor suggests they have a go at aiming for apples. However, there’s a twist. Momoa wants to have the apple on Corden’s head while also blindfolded.
“We’re going to do a little trust exercise,” says Momoa, before applying the blindfold.
A panicked Corden subs himself out for a dummy. And it proved the right decision. Although Momoa hits the apple, the arrow also pierces the dummy’s head. Momoa insists he knew where the apple was and Corden changed the position.
“Don’t be so dramatic,” he adds. “It hurts that you didn’t trust me.”
It’s not the first time Momoa has gone without sight. He previously worked with a“blindness coordinator” in preparation for his role in Apple TV’s See, a sci-fi flick where humanity has lost its sense of sight. In the lead up, Momoa wore sleep shades for two works to get a feel for what it’s like to live with visual impairment.
“It’s just amazing how everything else just opens up your body,” he said. “You’re so fooled by your eyes. You cut off all these other senses but just feel and smell and hear, and you can echolocate.”
