(or, something like That.)
so, a little while back, i posted a short blog entry for a miscellaneous video clip i ... stumbled upon while messing with some other shit; i have long ago learned more about the source of This Clip.. ..and i have not been the same since.
the ring-leaders of this funny little operation are Hitoshi Matsumoto & Masatoshi Hamada — the entity known as Downtown; their main show is Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!. with this duo are Hōsei Yamasaki, Naoki Tanaka, and Shōzō Endō. if you're curious about what these guys do, you can look them up on you↕tube; you may even start Here, if you'd like.
(as much as i'd like to put other actual Clips here, that would definitely be violating some Copyright Laws; maybe Nippon TV won't say anything about that one thing i have showcased, already, because it might recognize that because of it, Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! is, indeed, slowly gaining exposure, state-side..
..but to put other things Here would probably be pushing It, greatly.)
i won't take too much longer with getting into the point of my writing this: not too long ago, a dude on you↕tube who saw that I have as much an appreciation for Down↕Town and its various antics as he does had, more-or-less, challenged me to do a Petition sort of thing in my blog — we both love These Guys so much that we want them to bring their show all around the world. So to get started with that, I need to see how popular of an idea this is, with you guys. I'm going to put up a poll about it, and I want for you to cast your vote there, okay?
the Challenger, himself, says he's doing his own part to gather support for making This Idea come to fruition.
if nothing else, i'd definitely like for Them to get some muther↕fuckin' English Sub↕Titling goin' on with that shit: kna'mean?
(actually, sub↕titling for the episodes for all languages of the people who are interested — to be Fair.)
i think it'd be lucrative for Hamada and Matsumoto, et al., to venture outside of Japan with their ideas, on a wider-scale..
..it's already self-evident that they be pullin' shenannigans similar to those which can be found in America's Jackass anyway: D.n.G.n.T.y.A.!! and Jackass are pretty much the same, when i think about it..
..although, at least with Gaki no Tsukai, the perps aren't being entirely mean-spirited.
anyway, i hope It works out ... we need more laughs — i had never seen anything go on like That before, ever. :-). and i am such a fan of Higashino(♫), Ōnishi(♫), and Yamasaki(♫)..
