Don't Laugh Part Two - Even More Beatings For Laughs

Okay, we're onto a trend of sorts.

I now believe that there may be an entire portion of Japanese television dedicated to trying to get people to laugh and then beating them for doing so.

Following up on my earlier clip about the students who were forced to watch the bad english speaker, comes this awesome clip:

Anyone want to shed some light on this whole beating for laughs thing for me? Is this something you see a lot of in Japan? Is it a take on the respect issue?

Whatever it is, I'll take more.

I would be more interested in someone explaining what the hell the show was about.
Gavin pretty much had it right. This is from "Mecha Mecha Iketeiru" (Really Really Living). The caption in the corner says "Laugh and get slapped". The comedian walking down the center (Yamamoto is his name, I think), chose one of his fellow castmates (dressed as a geisha) chose a "joke", had the "slapper" say it, then he said it himself. English tends to be a good source of laughs when people are trying NOT to laugh. I think they are dressed as geishas to parody the recent popular drama "O-Oku" about the rough life of a geisha stable.
It reminds me of Buddhist monks that beat students who fall asleep during meditation.
I work in Japan and I can honestly tell you that people hit one another all the time.

I've seen kids hit their parents, parents smack their kids. Kids smack other kids. It happens on a daily basis. Doesn't matter why, really, it's just a terribly common reaction to lots of things.

They don't usually do it out of any real antagonism, it's just what people do. And they hit hard. But they just shrug it off in the end so no one takes it personally.
The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price. Moreover, cell phones are the representative of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .
Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones wholesale in the current financial crisis.
