This is the best show on Earth.

I would SO watch an Americanized version of this show.... You hear that ABC?!?

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 04:53 PM

WHY doesn't the U.S. have a version of this show?

This isn't one of those Scientology initiation rituals, is it?

Oh yeah? Well, we've got Wheel of Fortune over here! Yeah, take THAT, Japan! (*cries*)

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:12 PM

Hilarious. I too, would watch this, while feeling slightly disgusted at myself.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:14 PM

um... wow. [speechless]

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:14 PM

Hahahaaaaahahaa! crazy funny

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:28 PM

That? Is some funny stuff. :-D

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:29 PM

*dumbstruck* ...............................................................
....... i would SO do that!

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:36 PM

it's only funny until someone gets hurt.

then its hilarious!


 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:36 PM

oh, and Courtney? seems more like something fox would do. put it right after the simpsons.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:37 PM

Not. Cute.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:40 PM

ROFL!! Best gameshow ever!

I can't stop laughing!

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:44 PM

NO moggyfan. Its redonkulus.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:46 PM

gee, the koreans have the exact same game show (argh!)

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:47 PM




I think my cat even laughed when he saw this one!

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:51 PM

Not cute. Just stupid.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 05:53 PM

I wouldn't call it stupid, but I agree with Moggy and Sadie that it's a very unlikely candidate for "cute."

I could watch that all day.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:00 PM

Oh, I get it. Meg's participating in Blog Like It's the End of the World Day, too!

Ever see MXC on Spike? More of this fun stuff with "commentary" in Eng"r"ish. No insult intended. :)

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:11 PM


I think Asian guys are cute, so there =D

Nice junk-grab there at the very end ..

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:17 PM

I thought it was cute because of the little bespectacled dude's eager expression as he dived through the hole, and the giant dude's sheepishness when he broke the... the... thing. He is Japanese Fezzik.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:18 PM


Dear god that would be so satisfying to make it through!

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:47 PM

words fail me. I can't believe I watched the whole thing *groaning sound*

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:51 PM

Oh my goodness. I'd never thought I'd see Eiji Wentz on cuteoverload.com (his musical partner Kokei Teppei on the other hand....)

Eiji is the first contestant, btw.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 06:57 PM

I don't understand what this has to do with cute animals or animals at all. It's just very stupid and annoying. I can't believe I wasted my time watching it.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:14 PM

confused: Cute humans are allowed too! It's a shame you didn't enjoy it, but yeah, YOU wasted your time watching it, no-one forced you. Once you realised you weren't feelin' it, you could easily have stopped.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:47 PM

Glad to see I am not the only one who thinks this looks like fun! 'Cept not in the silly space suit....

Anybody else watch Ninja Warrior?? It is AWESOME!! (course I love the ORIGINAL Iron Chef too, sniff. Misses it.)

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:49 PM

Just noticed the Japanese Fezzik comment..hee hee.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:51 PM

Oh god I giggled so hard my tummy hurt.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:58 PM

I kept waiting for the cute...but it did make me laugh a little :) I agree, I wouldn't classify this video as cute, though one of the guys was.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 07:58 PM

ummm... What is cute about this?

Cute Overload: I am disappointed in the failure to comply to any rules of cuteness and the lack of cute animals or even products.

Le sigh.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:01 PM

"At Cute Overload™, we scour the Web for only the finest in Cute Imagery. Imagery that is Worth Your Internet Browsing Time."

Except not this time.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:02 PM

Yeah, where are the *animals*? I didn't see a single kitten or bunny or otter - not even a frog. Just people making fools of themselves.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:17 PM

Uhm... not cute.

But funny as all get out!!!


 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:19 PM

Agreed, very similar to "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge," played on SpikeTV. At the end of each episode they do the "10 most painful eliminations of the day."

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:20 PM

Think of it as a palate cleanser. A sort of mental sherbet. A sort of strange, gallivanting, silver-pantsed.....HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAAAA *snork!*

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:23 PM

That was genuinely hilarious. Not cute, but definitely worth my browsing time.

The "218" was awesome.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:26 PM

Thank goodness for YouTube. This is the sort of thing I used to see on TV in Japan, and when I tried to explain to people back in the states, they never believed me.

I actually whimpered with laughter.

Oh and "not cute" folks, give it a rest, would you? Is Meg a robot? Must she toe the line and comply with your narrow cute parameters all the time?

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:31 PM

People please read! No where did it say that the video was suppose to be cute. It says its "Beyond redonk" meaning beyond ridiculous....But I thought it was kind of funny.

 |  Jun 13, 2007 at 08:34 PM

As an ESL tutor who works with a lot of foreign students from Asia, I can totally believe that this show is real. It is right up their alley in absurd and colorful. It's like dry British humour, you just have to be prepared for it.

And the girl's red outfit was adorable :P

That was hilarious! If we had game shows like that here in the US, it'd completely kill on sweeps week. XD
