It may come as a surprise to you to hear that Piers Morgan has shared a joint with Mike Tyson. But then again, if you knew that Piers Morgan had been a guest on Mike Tyson's podcast - called Hot Boxin' with Mike Tyson - then perhaps you might not be so surprised.
In the clip, the 54-year-old asks Tyson what he is supposed to do with the joint in his hand, to which he replies: "Smoke it!"
Tyson, 52, then lights it for Piers and he takes a drag, prompting a hysterical reaction from Tyson and some other bloke in the studio.
Seemingly quite pleased with the reception, Piers adds: "When in Rome, right?"
To clarify, the smokey scenes took place in California, USA, where recreational use of cannabis is legal. More specifically, the podcast took place on Tyson's cannabis resort, Tyson Ranch, where recreational use of cannabis is actively encouraged.
The chat certainly seemed to flow between the two anyway, with Piers pointing people in the direction of the podcast in a tweet that read: "My extraordinary 90-minute chat with @MikeTyson for his brilliant new @hotboxinpodcast - about everything from sex, cannabis & the Dalai Lama to Muhammad Ali, toad venom & punching paparazzi."
You'd have to assume most of those stories are Tyson's, but either way, sounds like it could be worth a listen.
Writing about his experience at the ranch for the Daily Mail, Piers revealed that Tyson gave him with a 'goody-bag of gifts of the leaf variety' before he left. The controversial presenter also said he believes weed is less dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes.
He said: "Whatever your side of the debate about marijuana - I view it as less dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes - I've never seen a happier, calmer Mike Tyson."
Piers also said he felt it was wrong that Tyson is currently barred from entering Britain due to a 1992 rape conviction.
He said: "It seems irrational to me that we regularly welcomed Mike Tyson to Britain when he was the 'baddest man on the planet' but now shun him when he's matured into a very different, safer and nicer man.
"Judging by our enlightening debate about young people and crime, I would love to see the ban lifted so he can come and speak to the troubled teenagers currently killing each other with knives.
"They're far more likely to listen to him than any politician."
