| We need this in North America!!!
Gaki No Tsukai ya Arahende!! (Translated as: Downtown's this is no task for kids!!) is something we north Americans wish we had, but never got. It's a true example why the Japanese have such a great sense of humour and we have....jackass.

The show originally started as Hamada and Matsumoto, but then Endo, Tanaka, Yamasaki, Heipo, and Fujiwara all came along later. Back in the old days, around the early 90's, Hamada and Matsumoto would play a game or make a bet, and whoever lost had to do something (which was usually humiliating or so stupid it was funny.) For example, At one time, Matsumoto had to be the SMPTE bars for a TV news station, and one time when hamada lost, he had to go get a bottle of evian water, right from the waterfall.

As the years went on, Downtown eventually started doing batsu games (which have all become popular on youtube) in which the players must not laugh, or they face a painful punishment. these batsu games usually take place over a period of 24 hours.

Overall, I love Gaki No Tsukai ya Arahende and i wish we had it here in north America. i'd buy the DVDs in a heartbeat.
