Better Ideas from Japan: Crazy Game Shows

"Crazy Treadmill Japanese Game"

"Another funny game coming from Japan. This one is with en endless treadmill..."

I don't know: "endless treadmill" seems redundant. As a loop, it is "endless" in a sense - oh, well, I'm nitpicking.

The important point is that it's got a wading pool at the end of it.

Ah, Japan: Land of ancient traditions; cherry blossoms; and crazy game shows.

This particular contest involves eye-hand coordination, fast footwork, and a willingness to look silly. Looks like fun.

Nearly four and a half minutes is a little long, for my taste: but your experience may vary.
