In this English-subtitled video of Japanese TV uploaded by YouTuber Morizaemon, Hey! Spring of Trivia plays a cruel joke on racewalking champion Jefferson Perez. They wanted to see what would happen if Perez was attacked by a gang of sword-wielding samurai: would he rely on his expert racewalking skills to get away, or would he simply run away? Watch the clip and find out:

Ah! You beat me to it! I was going to post the same thing.
It's worth watching. Really hilarious!

These are pretty funny:

Public Toilet Prank

Ski Spa Prank

The thing that never ceases to amaze me about Japanese dokkiri gags is that they never seem to care that someone might actually get injured (I can see serious potential for neck injury in that ski resort prank, and that "chair-ski out of control" is just insanely dangerous and stupid).

If anyone tried anything like that in the US, lawyers would be having a field day.

I know.

I personally believe we are WAY too litigious here (c'mon... coffee is SUPPOSED to be hot!) but for these dokkiri kamera things, I'd have NO problem with a lawsuit.

If I got shot down a mountain in a chair and somehow got out of it with no injuries whatsoever, I'd probably be like "Ok, ya got me", but c'mon, I'm surprised no one got killed Laughing

That show "Scare tactics" was probably as close to this as you can get, and they just scare the crap out of you, they don't actually put you in physical danger (although when the "stripper" gets "murdered" in the bathroom and the "mafia" guys showed up, the victim looked pretty worrried Laughing )

Which is unusual, since the society as a whole seems pretty obsessed with safety. (I'm working on getting a Japanese license, and driver's ed takes three times as long and ten times the $$$ of what I had to spend in the US...)
