Q. Why is 6 afraid of 7?
A. Because 7, 8, 9
The animation is based on the Christmas cracker joke. One Christmas eve a group of numbers are gathered and seated ready to dine together as friends. They are all seated and prepared for their meal when suddenly one of the numbers decides to tell a joke. The jokes continue and so one number says to the other: ‘Why is six afraid of seven?’ The other number then replies to him ‘I don’t know.’ Abruptly, another number sitting right beside him eats him and replies ‘because 7 ate 9’, with a large grin on his face. All the gathered number are shocked by this action. However, after an awkward moment of silence they all burst out laughing. Number 7 then randomly turns around to stare intensely at number 6 which he then eats. All the other numbers are once again in shock. The last scene ends with the shocked faces of all the other numbers not knowing what he’s going to do/eat next.
