Why Everyone Loves Japan

Krista put this picture up on her blog, which is me and a bunch of our friends watching "human tetris":

Later that night Ken and Sarah introduced us to the wonderful world of Japanese pranks which included this one, which caused me to laugh so hard that I was in pain (may not be appropriate for work or if you have young kids looking over your shoulder):

And lastly, for fans of the Office, here's the "original" Japanese version (about as appropriate as an episode of the Office):

So, there you have it. Japan is great! Yay!

    Hahaha....that Office clip is hysterical. If you can understand their really awful Japanese, it's even funnier!

    Have you seen this Japanese prank?

  2. Hi, Matt-- My name is Samantha; we met briefly in Colorado at STINT briefing last summer, and I'm also the PSW intern who sent you a few emails today about the STINT team leaders' training.

    I randomly came across your blog through links from other people's blogs, and I've had so much fun reading your posts! The Japanese prank at the ski resort was hilarious! Funny, too, because I just posted a bunch of Japanese videos on my blog over the weekend, too! Here's one of my favorites:

    Take care!

  3. You guys are funny. And apparently so are the Japanese clips. They are well loved.
