Some time ago I saw some of these shows highlighted on Ellen and thought I would pass them along to you.

If you are tired of the Game Shows here in America, take a look at a few that are popular in Japan.  (Air-E if you check out this post, let me know if you have seen these before.)

The first is a show called HUMAN TETRIS.  The participant must contort their body in the shape of the oncoming target or risk falling into a pool of water.

The second is HUMAN BOWLING.  In this video it appears that the man submerges himself in a pool of what maybe gelatin and then runs down a lane head first into a set of 500 bowling pins.

Last is this ridiculous marshmallow eating relay, with a rubber band around their head.  Just a nice little game to play at family gatherings.

    Hilarious. I’ve always enjoyed watching Japanese game shows. I guess they need this silliness as an antidote to all their formality and politeness in everyday life. Does any other nation produce silly game shows or is it just Japan?

  4. They should make Human Tetris into a real video game — NES original

  5. I know wouldn’t that be hysterical? Love your blog BTW. I’m a coffee fiend too! 🙂
