Twirling matchbox joke

Two matchboxes are on the table, one on top of the other. As you pick up the top box, the one underneath, which is attached, starts twirling round. Quite a surprise. This is definitely old Davenport stock as it was included in some of the goody bags for the 1998 Davenports Centenary Celebration held in Brighton.
