Japanese Game Show: Gaki no Tsukai - Batsu Game (1 of 2)

When I was younger and naive, I knew the Japanese for a few things, mainly coming up with the coolest and weirdest things, and broadcasting the most creative and insane game shows. One that I'd like to share with you today is called Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! This is a variety game show with various segments, of which I'd like to share two particular ones.
The main cast members of Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende
          The first segment is called "Batsu Game", this translates roughly to "Punishment Game". This was a game a cast member had to "play" when they lose a bet. The game wasn't really a game, but really more a dare, such as skydiving or doing something really embarrassing. But then came another version of batsu game, called "Laughing Batsu Game". This game involved a few cast members where they would have to refrain from laughing for long period of time. Upon laughing, they would be punished, physically.



The video above is probably my first encounter of the laughing version of batsu game.
In this video, a man attempts to read and do various things in English, but of course, his English is terrible.

In this game, casts members must endure tag, for 24 hours. When caught/tagged, they are due for physical punishment.

Next time, I'll do a review of "Silent Library", another segment of the show.

I do not own or take credit for all of the above images and videos, if you would like them to be taken down, please message me.

Are there any cool shows you guys like, regardless of being Japanese? What's your favourite game show?

@ Duhniel I think saw that on TV, it was like "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" where Americans go to Japan on a game show.

It's a shame we can't have shows like this in the US or UK, health and safety would just repond with "no" and in the US the contenstants might start sueing.
