A cruel practical joke

Filed under: Foreigners — notsaussure @ 9:45 pm

I’m not normally a fan of practical jokes, but this, from what I take to be a Japanese equivalent of Beadle’s About, is so OTT and has such a surreal nightmarish quality — you can just imagine ‘This cannot possibly be happening while I’m awake’ going through the victims’ minds — I was, somewhat guiltily, impressed.

It’s in Japanese, but this should not present any problems of understanding other than how on earth they persuaded their victims not to sue them and, instead, got them to agree to it being shown on TV.
