Funny and Craziest Japanese Games Shows and Pranks

Updated on April 11, 2011

Funny Japanese Pranks

As i've known for a long time, Japanese are serious type of people.  But lately, it just change my point of view about japanese.  They have a great sense of humor.  They are the most effective comedian I've known today.  As i watched their videos, it made me LOL the first time in my life.  I just can't stop laughing even just remembering the things I've watched.  Its like its printed permanently in my mind and I can't control the feeling of laughing. 

Even though It doesn't make any sense but still I cant force myself not to laugh. Even though I can't understand any words they are saying but the people itself makes it even more funnier.

Some of these games are now popular worldwide. I see a lot of tv shows playing their games. But Japanese is more effective laughing machine and more funnier.

Here are Some of my favorite Japanese Games.

Marshmallow Game

The first time I watched this video made me think where did they find a concept of this game.  And the players made it even more funnier because the players where both hilarious.  Sometimes I was thinking of playing this game but its more fun watching this game.

Japanese Binocular Soccer

For you which is more funnier?

      LOL this is some funny stuff! The second part of the first video was hilarious! In the U.S. that would be a law suit in 2.4 seconds!

      Japanese people have so much irony in them. You think because they are so powerful and successful in almost everything they do that they do not know how to be fun. This is so untrue because if you go to YouTube, you will find that the funniest viral videos are actually from Japan.

      The Japanese prank is my choice. Japanese are used to this pranks. It happens to them any time, any place, anywhere. Even big stars were subjected to these. Sometimes I sympathize with those victims of candid cameras. Some are not funny anymore but dangerous and foolish. I used to have a video of Japanese pranks. Those who cried due to humiliation made me cry also..hmmm

      thanks for checking out mythbuster. Youre right Japanese have their own ways to express and show their own cultures. Thanks

      Fantastic hub - I agree with Cheeky Girl here - the Japanese are willing to endure a lot of pain on these game shows. Actually, found I could not watch certain parts of the videos without considerable discomfort - and couldn't laugh at everything that other people might laugh at. I'm positive that some of our laughter is of the nervous kind - we don't know another way to express ourselves when viewing some of this stuff...there's a lot of violence here, actually. Great hub and videos tho' - kudos for showing how another culture (besides 'western') 'entertains' and 'performs.'

      I notice the Japanese have a high tolerance for pain! I dont know why, but on TV people just laugh at it, though often it looks painful. Few can match their strange taste for the extreme! Sure makes fun tv!

      They are all great. I saw the marshmallow before so I love it:) Anyway I'm more into anime and manga, you should see the humor there, they are crazy and they have a sick and open minded sense of humor. Which can come as a surprise!
