Japanese TV Weirdness of the Week

This game show is just wrong in so many ways. Which doesn't mean it's not funny of course. The overall theme is for its competitors (two teams of desperately horny men) to win various challenges, the prize at the end being the chance to perve on a sexy girl.

The concept of this first activity goes like this: the men have to avoid being pulled into a muddy pool while throwing balls to break up a barrier and thus reveal the naked girl having a shower.

As I said, wrong in so many ways. But perhaps somehow a metaphor for life itself.

A second challenge is for the horny guys to dive into scalding water to press a button that apparently causes the girl's breasts to jiggle. Yes, that is the reward for enduring immense pain. Of course, it is rendered somewhat pointless because (a) the guys are too busy trying to force their teammate to get in the water to notice the girl, and (b) she's not really endowed in such a way that makes the jiggling much of a spectacle.

I'd like to say this is the most ridiculously sexist Japanese game show I've seen, but alas that is not the case. That honour goes to "the sucking game", which you can watch here. If you really have to.
