TypeError: Illegal Invocation on console.log.apply

If you run this in the chrome console:

console.log.apply(null, [array])

Chrome gives you back an error:

// TypeError: Illegal Invocation

Why? (Tested on Chrome 15 via OSX)

Answer

It may not work in cases when execution context changed from console to any other object:

This is expected because console.info expects its "this" reference to be console, not window.

console.info("stuff")
stuff
undefined
console.info.call(this, "stuff")
TypeError: Illegal invocation
console.info.call(console, "stuff")
stuff
undefined

This behavior is expected.
