I love Japan and the Japanese, but watching videos like this tend to make me paranoid. How about you?

    Hey, Your back up! Yeay! Do you have something resembling a reliable broadband connection yet? Been missing your blog posts (other than Mystery Bird).

    Assuming this isn’t staged and the victims haven’t given prior consent, what’s stopping them from suing the producers/spa?

    Lets say that the Japanese tend to be a bit more forgiving when they find out that they’ve been the target of a prank.

    I’ve seen this one before and I’ve also seen the one where they rig the port-a-johns to lift the people up into the air.

    But yes, Japanese humor is interesting. I suppose for a culture so bound up in saving face it needs to have a release valve and this is it.
