Internet Video Classics: Japanese 'Silent Library'

Internet Video Classics: Japanese 'Silent Library'

You'd be hard pressed to find a person who isn't a fan of Japanese Game Shows. Here at SBSG we are big fans of Japan - I don't think you find a society that is more focused on pumping out millions of hours of absolute madness than the Japanese, and we are all the richer for it.

But this clip in particular has a certain resonance for me. A popular segment on the comedy show Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! called 'Silent Library', it subjects six brave participants to unusual and sadistic torture methods which include 'Nose Fishing', 'Slapping Machine' and 'Old Man Bites Tenderly'. Even though it is many years old, it still makes me explode with laughter - it's not so much the hilarious torture, but more the insistent 'ssssh' from someone out of shot urging the team to be quiet while a fully dressed baseball player whollops a guy's ass with his bat.

Enjoy! And here's hoping you don't get the poison card, lest you experience the 'bad smell air'.
