Well, good news everyone! Japanese game shows are as weird as ever (this is the kind of stability we all need in our lives).
And in case you needed any evidence this is true, we present this video from a show titled AKBingo — in which two women blow on opposite ends of a plastic tube in an attempt to shoot a bug (which appears to be a cicada or cockroach of sorts) into the other woman’s mouth.
Apparently the premise of the variety show is that the members of the girl group AKB48 compete in various games, quizzes and activities and whoever loses has to pay a penalty — usually in the form of an outrageous game (i.e. the one we just discussed).
We actually have a similar game in New York… It’s called sleeping with your mouth open in the summer.
May the odds be ever in your favor!!!!
