Do Think You Could Win The Japanese Tetris Game?

Sure, I can dig Tetris magnets and even fancy pants Tetris wall installations, but this real life Japanese Tetris game conjures up freaky dreams of being stuck in a perpetual video game.

The game is part of a popular TV show and involves human players fitting their bodies into small, oddly shaped openings on a moving pane. Half the game is played on solid ground, the other half is played over a pool of water. The first couple of players exhibit moderate contortionist and gaming skills...and then the giant man arrives. Watch as disaster ensues.

Thanks to Chuger for sharing the video!

This is absolutely crazy! Why don't we have stuff like this in the US? We turn to reality TV, and the Japanese go with extreme gameshows. Personally, I know which one I prefer...(human tetris rules!) Thanks for showing this to me.

yeah, I'm pretty sure I'd end up in the water, before the wall even got within a 5 foot range. I think that's why it creeps me out.
