Re: Entertainment Rescue Three choux-crèmes. Two filled with mustard. With the help of a lie detector app, can Haruki get the truth out of Mari and find out which is the genuine cream-filled pastry? Or will Double-0-Four-foot-Seven-point-five-inches outwit her foe!?
Re: Entertainment Rescue Hahaha - that's quite a codename!
Another great clip - I still love the lie detector music
As coincidence would have it, I actually played a similar game to this once when I was in Japan - a bunch of us ate choux-crème buns, one of which was full of wasabi, and everyone else had to guess who had eaten the spicy one. I never knew there was an app for that!
Re: Entertainment Rescue She's the only person I know who could have that codename! Who else is so short?
Haha I know - I love that lie detector music as well. The way you have to wait for it to play twice too, just to add to the suspence/prolong the agony! I don't get why you have to type the question into the app though. It's not like it's going to understand it and analyse the answer given accordingly. I think they managed to prove it was a bit rubbish
The choux-creme game is a classic! I've never played, so well done for having the guts to potentially have a mouthful of wasabi
I love that Haruki genuinely found it disgusting to eat. Usually when these types of games are played on TV the people eating over react and you can tell it's not THAT bad - but Haruki looked like he was genuinely going to be sick. Even giving him the bin to spit it out in.
Re: Entertainment Rescue That's one thing I love about Japan. All TV like this is real not staged. And when America or UK tries to copy that it tends to come out rubbish (King of the Mountain, Storm the Castle).
Re: Entertainment Rescue Oh a LOT of stuff on Japanese TV is staged. They love over the top reactions and it's almost like their TV stars are trained to ham things up.
Take the Japanese hidden camera "pranks" people wet themselves over on YouTube for example. They all feature celebrities and the majority of them will know they're on a so-called prank show. Those few who genuinely don't will realise within a couple of seconds and then play along and act way more surprised/scared than they really are.
I saw one once where the had some kid go into someone's 'dressing room' and ask the celebrity to sign their t-shirt, but when they did the end of the pen squirted ink all over them. They supposedly leapt back and fell on the floor at the shock of it. They did a "replay" of this happening from a different angle and magically the ink squirted in a different place, yet everything else and the falling over reaction as the same...
So they filmed it twice, and had to have had two identical outfits to be ruined by the ink. That's how much of a surprise these things really are!
But that's another reason I love YH - they do things for real!
Re: Entertainment Rescue You just ruined my childhood
Nah, I know how fake these shows can be. But what I meant to say was the "things made out of cardboard" type of shows (you know, YH, Begiragons) seem to be pretty realistic (probably as some if them are on a budget of nothing! )
Re: Entertainment Rescue I love this one. It's the Yaguchi Hitori sense of humour at its best. The Time Capsule!:
The reunion and them acting as if they've not seen each other for years is brilliant And the whole following the map to the 'place' they buried it afterwards LOL. And of course their letters are amazing! Hahaha
