Well, the second one is obviously made by non-Japanese, and I've seen the human tetris game-show thingy on TV before. Although the tetris one is probably based on a talent group that did a really good tetris imitation with people over a black screen a few years back... I do like watching them fall into the icewater when they fail though. ;)

Perhaps I'm just jaded, but I found the first one pretty normal, and the second one stupidly ignorant...

I love Japanese game shows. They are so creative and out there. Plus it is fun to watch them fail.

I liked the human tetris. I hardly ever watch TV, but I do like those kind of silly programs where comedians have to perform all kinds of stupid stunts.

Those of you living in Japan probably aren't aware that they've turned that bloody Tetris thing into a full series in its own right here in Australia (and in other countries, do doubt) :?

Does anyone know if the host for this game show is actually a male or not.
They have a deep voice for a female if not.

That's a guy in a wig. I can't recall his name right now, but I've seen him on TV a few times.
