Oh, Japan! is a weekly feature in which I will chronicle the wierd, wacky and just plain crazy goings on in Japan. Because we all know, Japan is prone to doing things that make us Westerners say “Oh, Japan!”.
For the Western world, Prank shows are all about making celebrities angry, confusing people with silly costumes, tricking people into thinking their car got towed, etc. But what would happen if the Prank show format was put into the hands of the Japanese? Well let’s just say the Japanese are known to be… well, rather extreme.
Check out this clip from Japanese Prank show, Panic Face King below. This poor man thought he had been selected to be interviewed for a documentary on the subject of telephone scams. Needless to say, it was a prank that this man will never forget. Oh, Japan!
