Blatant Video Theft Corner: Japanese Sniper!

Say what you will about Japanese television. These guys really do put out some great stuff. Their game shows rule because they border on the absurd and their prank shows are even better. I think that Japanese TV has literally no regard for the real people involved and that is why the shows are so awesome. Maybe the Japanese are not quote as litigious as we are here in the States and that is why they can get away with so much. I don't think you could pull this off in the U.S.

Anyway, in the video a man enters into some kind of meeting (I don't speak or read Japanese. Duh.) and is made to believe there is a sniper outside taking out all of the other dudes in the room.

I love shit like this.


  1. Omg.... that is horrible and fabulous all at the same time.

  2. ahhahah, AWESOME. Did you ever see the one where they woke someone up, by smashing their house with a tank???

  3. I did see that one. The dude had no idea what was going on. Other Japanese highlights were the dude who would run up and scream in your ear and the guy the buried in the street who would jump up and scare you when you got too close.

    Egypt had a show that was super F-ed up. During a very tense time in the county, this guy would just walk up to people place a briefcase at their feet and then run away as fast as he could. The people would scatter so fast. They thought they could outrun an explosion.
