Gaki no tsukai: English Lesson

*Sigh* As you may have noticed, you have been seeing a lot less of me lately. But isn’t that a good thing? Harhar!

Due to insistent pocket demands, I had to return to the real world and make my living the usual way. Needless to say, I am now part of the workforce.

Anyway, I have here a 5-plus-minute video clip of Gaki no tsukai ya arahende (This Ain’t A Job For Kids), a popular owarai (comedy show) in Japan and hosted by the comedic duo Downtown.

Basically, the clip you’ll see is a popular segment where they put comedians in a certain humorous scenario, and what these poor folks do is to refrain from laughing. If they do, they get a butt-whack.

I used to watch this before in Japan, and I really miss it. You can’t get anything like this on TV here. Lagot sa MTRCB!

Before you click the play button, get a wad of tissue. You’ll be crying with laughter before you know it!

  1. Ate Flori (ate daw oh) grabe sobrang katawa nga niyan. Pero may sense naman din yung pagbilang niya, tama nga naman ang 20 ay 10+10. Ten ten. Ten ten ten ten ten ten. Lolz!!! Dapat ginawa niya para mas Japanese 2-10. 2-10-1. Hahaha.

  2. sore wa ne! lolz…

  3. VT! Yebah! Hahaha…

    Anyway, the guy counting “ten ten ten ten…” is actually a comedian himself so he’s probably doing it on purpose just to get the others laugh.

    Hi, Dimaks! Are these guys still on tv? I think they are, right? Yoroshiku sa Japan 😛
