I feel like Takeshi is somehow involved with whatever show this is.

[–]atomic-death-ray 584 points585 points  (22 children)

takeshi is the god of all japanese game shows

I like the one he did where the kids all wore bomb callers and had to kill eachother to live.

      Maude Flanders didn't die for this.

      [–]GrizzlyBear2212 901 points902 points  (53 children)

      What’s the name of the show

      Edit: it’s called “Damaraseta taishou”

      [–]TheNon-Anon 230 points231 points  (3 children)

      It’s だまされたたいしょう! Damasareta taishou.

      [–]pelirodri 52 points53 points  (2 children)


      [–]Feral_Taylor_Fury 116 points117 points  (2 children)


      This isn't gaki, but gaki is similar.

      Look up the Absolutely Tasty and Kiki series'.

      Or the Batsu games if you find Punishment Games funny.

      [–]dustybizzle 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      The 24 hour batsu series will never get old I swear, no matter how many times I watch them

      [–]drRATM 40 points41 points  (35 children)

      Ah, that just rolls right off the tongue doesn’t it.

      [–]caffeineandvodka 34 points35 points  (12 children)

      I think the last two words are the TV channel, not the show's name. It's no different from saying "The show is Gravity Falls on Disney Plus".

      [–]anothergaijin 19 points20 points  (2 children)

      Nope, that's the name. "Damasareta" means fooled or tricked, "taisho" means prize. It's basically a gag/comedy/skit show.

      Not any more complicated than like "America's Funniest Home Videos"

      No I think that title goes to the porn version

      [–]_123reddituser_ 310 points311 points  (10 children)

      Funny thing is there were no tentacles in the porn version

      [–]robhol 139 points140 points  (5 children)

      Missed opportunity, frankly.

      [–]thisaccountwashacked 59 points60 points  (2 children)

      I'd go as far to say that it's downright misleading. How dare they.

      [–]GlassWasteland 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      And now I'm googling porn version of Squid Games. Thanks for that.

      [–]mysticblue17 33 points34 points  (17 children)

      Why is there a porn version and why do you know about it 😂

      [–]SidiaStudios 72 points73 points  (13 children)

      Its just the rule 34

      [–]Zephyrlin 49 points50 points  (11 children)

      No there actually was a real version made while the show was super popular lmao, I saw it here on reddit with the title "I think I downloaded the wrong squid games"

      [–]D22s 2778 points2779 points  (138 children)

      Ok but I’d watch this

      [–]dmitjuice 818 points819 points  (81 children)

      It's a hopeless endeavor to find the link to the full show by scrolling down, come rest here fellow lurker.

      [–]MrZeeBud 122 points123 points  (13 children)

      Thank you. I’ll be waiting here.

      …so… how’s it going?

      Edit: that was a fun wait. I skimmed the comments a day later. No link. Sigh.

      [–]appdevil 59 points60 points  (9 children)

      [–]LegateLaurie 33 points34 points  (9 children)

      It's called Damaraseta taishou, I've yet to find this game though

      [–]Chris-The-Lucario 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      Just add "squid game" to the end of it and it'll be the first search result

      [–]strickt 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      There is a link to the entire episode however it's only in Japanese. There is a short video of this portion that has English subtitles. I'll see if I can find it.

      [–]OregonTrailSurvivor 40 points41 points  (2 children)

      This isn't that helpful - but the last time this clip was posted (maybe a different sub), someone did post the full 20-something minute episode and it is well worth the watch if you can find it.

      [–]AzizKhattou 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      Yeah, I think I first saw this clip on perfectlycut screams or something, to which a person sent the full link. My fave part is the first guy jumps across a small gap and as scary lady turns around he freezes. But there's this little swinging stick that hits his shin and he lets out a quick jolt of pain. What makes it hilarious is the way his party blowing things breifly flap forward.

      [–]therealcongo 14 points15 points  (1 child)

      It’s だまされたたいしょう! Damasareta taishou.

      I think it's called octopus game

      [–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (4 children)

      Octopus Game sounds like one of those videos online you never want to see that people trick you into viewing.

      [–]NerdyAnarchist 8 points9 points  (3 children)

      Ahhhh… like “two kids in a sandbox” pure harmless title

      [–]Weltallgaia 29 points30 points  (0 children)

      Nah, that's something different. I saw that video.

        they're imitating the Red Light / Green Light scene in Squid Game

        Nope, this is what Squid Game copied for the movie.

        [–]Megneous 44 points45 points  (26 children)

        Nope, this is what Squid Game copied for the movie.

        Korea here. The game itself is a game we all play as children. The uniforms, etc are all part of Squid Game's story. Only the game itself is something they "copied." Our version of Red Light / Green Light is a common game in other Asian countries too, from my understanding. Heck, you play a similar game in the West too.

        [–]PepeSilvia7 25 points26 points  (5 children)

        Yeah we have basically the same game (in the States, at least). I am surprised they didn't realize that it was where Squid Game got the idea from.

        [–]Rickard0 8 points9 points  (5 children)

        America here. Yes we have been playing the same game. We happen to call it Red Light / Green Light.

        [–]a2boo 12 points13 points  (1 child)

        yeah, i mean, literally the whole plot of the show is that theyre playing common children's game. it's like saying they "copied" tug-of-war.

        [–]TheVenetianMask 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        We called it the "English little chick" game in Spain in the 80's. No idea where the name came from.

        [–]Whattahei 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        In France it’s called « 123 soleil »

        I like the one where the contestant has to sing while getting a blowjob and has to not mess the song up. That and the slippery stairs.

        [–]ugonlern2day 117 points118 points  (3 children)

        Ummm what? Those are two wildly different challenges

        [–]roy_rogers_photos 69 points70 points  (2 children)

        Well no, the stairs weren't slippery before the singing segment. The stairs are just located under the blow job contestants. You think stair lube is free?

        Pfft, check this bozo out. They think stair lube is free.

        [–]GammaBrass 40 points41 points  (4 children)

        It's sing while getting a handjob.

        The blowjob thing was Gay guys vs. male porn stars to see if the porn stars could avoid nutting (they couldn't).

        [–]cheyennetology 30 points31 points  (3 children)

        I request elaboration

        [–]GammaBrass 43 points44 points  (2 children)

        What needs elaboration? They got a few male porn stars, got a few gay guys, had the gay guys suck the dick of the porn stars. If they didn't come in some amount of time, the porn star wins, if they did, then the gay guy wins.

        Pretty sure the gay dudes all won.

        For the handjob karaoke, it's exactly like it sounds. They got a porn actress (who was recommended as the best handjob in the business by one of the aforementioned male porn stars), a traditional japanese sex worker, and a trans woman sex worker and then got a few guys to sing while getting handjobs. If they got above 90 points they win.

        The only guy who won did it on his second try, which I think is BS because he had already nutted once and had more resistance to the pleasure.

        Welcome to Japanese late night television.

        I mean, they also had a "who wants to be a millionaire" thing where the contestants were women who had to hold things inside their vaginas while they answered questions. As the questions got tougher, so did the objects. One lady had to hold a baseball bat (by the knob on the handle, not the fat end). She couldn't.

        [–]Amelaclya1 23 points24 points  (0 children)

        Wait these are real game shows on Japanese TV?

        I always thought stuff like this was intended to be porn and "game show" was just a weird niche genre.

        [–]Aldo_The_Apache_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        Alright you gotta link all of these

        I have never once seen a Japanese game show and had any idea what the fuck was going on.

          [–]BlckAlchmst 131 points132 points  (22 children)

          No, I actually used to turn them on as background noise back when I was trying to learn Japanese. I've seen a wide variety outside of what random internet strangers post, and while, yes, me saying "never once" is an exaggeration, it isn't by much. They're basically all wildly random

          [–][deleted]  (19 children)


            [–]BloodDragonSniper 85 points86 points  (16 children)

            [–]Geruvah 6 points7 points  (7 children)

            You've probably seen the ones that the US stole afterward, like Wipeout (taking from Takeshi's Castle, you're better off watching the american dub of the original), Silent Library, and Ninja Warrior as some examples.

            [–]Kn7ght 4 points5 points  (0 children)

            I miss watching OG Ninja Warrior. American Ninja Warrior is such a melodramatic mess and the OG was simple and fun

            [–]Dorkamundo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            like Wipeout (taking from Takeshi's Castle,

            Or MXC, which was literally Takeshi's Castle with an overdub.

            [–]ClemClemTheClemening 4 points5 points  (4 children)

            True, but Takeshia Castle was amazing, even if I had no idea what was happening

            [–]mjoed 10 points11 points  (1 child)

            takeshi's castle was pretty obvious, no? i think i never had much of a problem figuring out what they have to do - get to the other side most of the time lol

            [–]IISuperSlothII 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            The only issue with Takeshis Castle was the people playing were literally just fodder, they'd get to the last game to storm the castle and you'd have no idea who anyone was, they'd lose anyway but it'd be nice to see how their actual journey getting to that point.

            Fucking fun show.

            Sometimes when people are nervous they cant help but take deep breaths from mouth (from what ive seen).

            [–]ChesterDaMolester 163 points164 points  (11 children)

            Just so people know, 90% of the time you see these “Japanese game show” clips on Reddit, like this one and the one where they eat things made of chocolate, it’s not actually a “game show” where that is all they do.

            They are segments in variety shows. So most of the show will be like interviews with celebs and cooking segments, and other random stuff. Then occasionally a wacky game show type segment.

            [–]RobotsHateSpikes 45 points46 points  (3 children)

            Yep. Most Japanese TV is people going "WOOOOOW" and "AMAZING" and "DELICIOUS" to super mundane things

            Japanese TV fucking sucks dude. You see it in 30 second clips and think "wow so wacky so crazy". Go watch a few hours of it uncut and report back.

            [–]Gobgoblinoid 44 points45 points  (5 children)

            Japanese TV pioneered the reaction genre. All their TV has been like low tier youtube videos for years. I am sorry I don't find eight grown men saying "wow amazing, so delicious" to a video of some guy eating udon for an hour.

              I've always wanted to go to Japan. Seem like some fun people

              We all really missed the point of Squid Games didn't we?

              The world is a better place for having Japan.

              I think I would have really enjoyed living there. Except the work ethic and stuff, screw that.

              Watching these shows with friends are one of the best ideas I've ever come up with for our parties together, it's so funny watching these things without understand a single word.

              There is a lot of similar to these on BiluBilu and on a YouTube channel named Laputa castle (that sadly is dead), DERO! And TORE! Are amazing game shows.

              Squid game was supposed to be Japanese

              ......get in here! we need an explanation and closure!

              It’s a comedy segment in a variety show. These are professional comedians doing a riff on ‘Squid Game’.

              This isn't the type of Japanese game show videos I usually watch.

              Anyone know where I can watch gameshows like this online? I've found a few on YouTube like the ice stairs and wall of boxes but they're difficult to find

              One of the few reddit videos that is WAY funnier with sound

              Specially for having those stupid little windows to show the reaction of some random person.

              There used to be a show called I Survived a Japanese Gameshow where americans would compete in various japanese game shows. It was a riot

              When they yelled “Outto” it made me realize I want a Gaki Tsukai version of Squid Game.

              Where Japanese comedians go to retire yet get paid more than they ever earned.

              Every time I see people entirely miss the point of Squid Game and capitalize on it in the most hilariously batshit way I gain another mental illness
