To get you warmed up for debate night, an overlong spectacle featuring a bunch of men attacking each other for the amusement of their audience. Think of the guy getting run over by a car and a motorcycle simultaneously as the talent-show equivalent of Perry after his “heartless” gaffe. Three ways you can tell that this clip comes from an insane Indian game show and not an insane Japanese one: (1) The costumes are regional; (2) the entertainment value depends upon something other than abject humiliation; (3) none of the participants ends up being emotionally scarred for life. Advantage: Japanese game shows.
Why can’t we have people getting run over on game shows here? Another sign of American decline, my friends.
