Open The Door, Earthman!

A man is wandering through the woods when he encounters two aliens. The aliens are standing before two scarlet boxes. One box is completely empty. The other holds a death ray.

With the clock running down, the man finally selects the box on the right. It is empty. Taking the aliens' words literally has solved the riddle. The aliens depart to play their horrendous "game" on some other world.
