Well there is definitely no doubt what number 1 is or shall I say was.
1. Gimp Ultimate fighting.
Had Sky Perfect (satellite in Japan) a few years back and was flipping through the channels when I came across this gem.
To be honest the film quality was that of a European snuff flick. Dark lighting and very poor picture quality. So there they are two guys sitting in the ring or square or what ever the fuck it was. Any how they were both sitting on their asses on some wrestling mats. One guy had his legs tapped together and had some UFC style fighting mitts on. While the other guy had no fucking legs! I shit you not. He did have some fighting mitts on though. So then this guy comes out in a striped referee and yells lets get it on (ok that part did not happen but it sure makes for a fucking kick ass story doesn’t it) So needless to stay these 2 guys are sliding around on the mats trying to beat the shit out of each other. So I grabbed some Dorito’s and my cold Asahi and hunkered down for the freak show. Man that shit was just plain ass disturbing but that didn’t prevent me from watching every single fucking minute of it. Good times!
2. Now this shit happened way back when I first came to check out Japan around 10 years ago. For all of you soccer or football fans out there this will show you what it is really like over here.
Now for anyone who follows that lame ass sport known as soccer there are some over zealous fans perhaps in Europe? aka hooligans some might say…
Well the Japanese media got a whiff and got the Japanese people in a frenzy about all of the hooligans coming to Japan to watch soccer?? Ya right unemployed alcoholics whom live in Europe are suddenly going to be able to scrounge together enough money to fly, stay and watch a soccer match in Japan. Not bloody likely.
So on the evening news there was this reporter who took it upon himself to go up to Caucasian males walking down the streets of Tokyo with their team jersey on and ask them. And I quote “are you a hooligan?” Good times in Japan oh ya.
3. This was actually a show that I quite enjoyed but went off the air a few years back for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it but I always referred to it as the “bimbo show.”
Now before you get all hot and bothered “bimbo” in Japan means broke ass poor. Since as I always says there ain’t nothing more funny that laughing at others misfortune. Good times!
So the premise of the show was these hosts went on a hunt to see who could find the person living in the most squalled shanty town style housing imaginable.
Then they would all meet up on the show and show their finds to the masses. And have themselves a good old laugh. And the host that found the worst living conditions won.
Hmm I often wonder why this type of show never made it back home in the U.S.?? Since it had all of the features of a great show. Funny check entertaining checkaroo degrading and inhumane… hmmm maybe that is the problem.
