Konami Videos: Salaryman Tests Classic Famicom Games

I'm not really sure what's happening in the following videos but as a gamer I find it inherently compelling.

It's some sort of competition and it looks like the Salaryman has to pass all of these games until he gets let out of the room. But that's just a guess.

If anyone can help me understand, I'd love them forever.
