Last Call: Those sadistic Japanese prank shows

Last CallLast CallLast Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and use the comment section as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.

I have watched every single clip from a Japanese prank TV show. Every single last one. This is what your humble Takeout editor does when he returns home at night after dinner and a shower: He wastes his time on YouTube and Dailymotion watching those sadistic Japanese mf’ers give each other PTSD. It’s a testament to how less litigious Japan is as a society, which makes these following clips so awful and beautiful.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and we’ll see you on Monday as The Takeout presents: Old Folks Food Week! [Kevin Pang]
