Men get hit in the balls.

Japanese culture is different from American culture. We do wacky things that they wouldn't do, and the reverse is also true. Sometimes though, I have to just shake my head in disbelief.

This video shows a Japanese game show in which men have to say a tongue twister correctly, because if they don't... they get hit in the balls. That's pretty much the whole concept right there. After seeing the consequences, the old guy at the end seems to plead with the host to let him leave.

Now, this is probably staged with actors wearing kevlar cups and that arm that whacks their nuts may not be as sturdy as it looks. But it's still a strange idea for a show.

Don't forget this is a Japanese game show and they gave us Endurance - so I'll bet they do it for real.

Sounds similar to watching that freak Nancy Grace, I feel like someone gives me a good swift kick to the nuts everytime I hear her voice.
