Odd shaped bokehWhats the cause?

I was watching the irish programme 'love/hate', When I noticed some peculiar shaped bokeh.
I've attached the image, can anyone fill me in as to why the bokeh is so square shaped?

Either it's due to a too-tight hard matte in the matte box, or it's a telephoto anamorphic lens with a rear anamorphic element, sometimes the cylindrical shape of the anamorphic element looks square when viewed flat-on and seems to cause squarish bokeh in certain situations (I think when shot wide-open.) But if it's an Irish TV program, odds are higher that it's the first case, a too-tight hard matte on spherical lenses.
