Japan has invented the greatest game show ever
Japan’s love of bizarre TV shows and, well, everything, has been well established. But their show, Jump Into Mud Puddle, may be the peak of Japanese craziness and perhaps the greatest game show of all-time.
The goal of the game is to stay submerged in the mud for as long as possible. The winner gets the yen equivalent of $100,000. Why so much money? Why do Japanese girls still love dressing like Sailor Moon? Isn’t that the equivalent of an American girl insisted on bouncing around like Punky Brewster? All valid questions.
