Probably the most well-known grownup game shows in America contain spinning outsized wheels like on Wheel of Fortune or The Worth is Proper, or answering questions like on Jeopardy or Who Needs to Be a Millionaire. Really feel the joy….of bar trivia and random probability. Yay? In the meantime, over in Japan, they’re having precise enjoyable with their very totally different sport exhibits, like with this one which merely asks their contestants to attempt to climb some slippery stairs. And it’s superb.
The YouTube channel Just Wow Me shared this ridiculous clip of a gaggle of keen, hard-working, persistent contestants on a Japanese game show, every making an attempt to be the primary one to make their strategy to the highest of a staircase fully slathered in what appears to be like like a Crisco-like substance (animal birthing agent?). It is a real-life Sisyphean job, solely as a substitute of it being a cautionary story of woe, everyone seems to be dressed like a rainbow and was actually into it.
And belief me once I let you know, watch all the factor. There are such a lot of moments while you suppose it’s over and somebody has lastly reached the highest, just for another person to wreck it for each of them.
I do not know what the prize was for this sport, however I sort of hope there wasn’t one. This may be even higher if the one factor the winner bought was pleasure. The pleasure of climbing slippery stairs. And isn’t that the kind of pleasure we may extra right here in America? Aren’t we sick of simply answering questions and spinning wheels? Isn’t it time to place the “sport” into sport present?
Would you need to compete on this sport, or is there one other Japanese sport present you’d wish to attempt much more? Share your dream contest in our feedback under.
