I remember watching the YouTube videos of the Japanese game show for Human Tetris where contestants try to navigate moving shapes and it was hilarious and entertaining.
Below is the YouTube video of the original Japanese Human Tetris.
Well not to let the skillet get cold a new show named Hole in the Wall is coming to the Fox network starting this Sunday night http://fox.com/fod/play.php?sh=holeinthewall. It will be interesting to see if they can do it as well as the Japanese game show. Traditionally the Japanese game shows on TV in Japan are far better than the ones remade for markets outside Japan like the new shows like “I Survived a Japanese Game Show” but I do love MXC (MXC Most Extreme Elimination) which is based on Japanese Game show Takeshi’s Castle.
I love Japan and am counting the days until Autodesk University 2008 in Japan AUJ. I wish we could do Human Tetris or Takeshi’s Castle at AUJ imagine the team building and sheer fun especially if we coupled it with a several hour Sake and Sushi Bust. :-)
I need to do some catching up on email and work as I spent the week in California and yesterday alone breakfast in San Francisco, Lunch in Los Angeles then dinner in Salt Lake City.
