The premise of the special is that for 24 hours, the comedians may not laugh or they are punished. There is usually a theme, i.e. policemen, hotelmen and most recently Airport. This usually end in tears and bruises for them. This year's theme was rumoured to be firemen, but it turns out an even funnier theme, 'Enthusiastic Teachers' was chosen!
There are MANY celebrities that make cameos in order to inflict torture upon the hapless comedians and I am hoping this year that a Momosu member makes a cameo! It's been a while since a morning musume member was featured , but it's always nice.
To catch up on past shows make sure to check out http://www.gaki-no-tsukai.com/ <-- This is an awesome fan forum and you may even be able to catch previous specials through this website. Normally I watch the live stream of the show, but in the future clever pirates manage to sub them eventually. This usually takes months, but it's worth it!
I like to play a game called, 'When will Yamasaki be open - palm slapped by Chono Masahiro'. After all, as hard as he tries to get out of it...every year they get him! And don't forget TANAKA THAI KICK-U~!
[The 2nd clip is of a popular singer recovering her song on a dvd the gang are forced to watch. She changes the lyrics, however, to include Tanaka's thai kick punishment for no reason. ]
