Funday Sunday: "Japanese Sauna"

This clip seems to be pretty popular on YouTube, so you may very well have seen it before. I, for one, can watch this time and time again and never be bored with it. I love this one!

Having spent some time in the sauna at gym today, it got me thinking about this one. There's one thing I'm curious about, however. Do those Japs really have leather seats in their saunas? That sounds disgusting to me. Imagine your sweat sticking to your skin on one of those... Never mind comfort - give me the classic wooden boards any day - at least they quickly soak up the sweat from the previous occupant of that seat quickly so I don't have to plant my naked butt in someone else's puddle of perspiration.

I love the fact, in this clip, that they are being tossed out into the freezing cold. Butt naked, straight from the heat of a sauna and into the freezing cold snow! The Japanese candid camera sure take things to the next level.

BTW. If you all got a little concerned about my well being yesterday - let me assure you that I am moving on toward my normal self again. Couple more good nights of sleep, and I'll be just fine. Thank You all for showing your support yesterday!

Ha! Hilarious! Good one for Funday Sunday.

fiwa said...

Awww damn! That's mean! lol... I'd be looking for someone's ass to kick if that happened to me. ;)

R.E.H. said...

Beautifully Profound: I know! I think this one's hilarious too!

Fiwa: I think I'd be too stunned to think of kicking anyone's ass... I'd be more interested in covering my own ;)

Jay said...

GOD I love Japanese TV! I swear I would move there just for the TV shows. Well, and the girls are hot too.

I've tried to find Japanese TV online and I've found a couple of sites that stream a couple of channels but not the ones with the really crazy shows. YouTube has a lot of good clips though.

Jay Cam said...

holy crud that seat on rockets was insane!

i can learn a lot from these people!!


Jill said...

But for the second half, when you see your chair turning around, wouldn't you get your ass of it! Especially your naked ass!

tt said...

Just when you think things can't get any sillier.....;)

Glad you're on the road back! Isn't it amazing what sleep can do for us?!

Anonymous said...

Other people's perspiration touching me?
*Throwing up a little*

Funny clip though.

Glad your feeling better. I just get really bitchy when I am sleep deprived.

Casdok said...

I hadnt seen that clip, like you say i think i will be watching it a few time!! Hilarious!! :)

R.E.H. said...

Jay: There's some software one can download which gives access to nearly every television station in the world (like 2.000 channels or something). I've been meaning to check this thing out myself, but find it hard to believe it's really free.

Jay Cam: Jet fueled seats... I think there's a business idea there ;)

Jill: I don't think you'd expect to be shot out through the wall and down the slope when it turns... so, like the people in the clip - I'm pretty sure one would just sit there wondering what's going on...

TT: Sleep is the single most important thing in our lives (along with food and water, I guess). It certainly determines your mood.

Butterfly Girl: Guess my ponderings on the leather seat made you sick ;) Sauna's are relaxing, though. I love them... just don't put leather seats in there!

Sleep deprivation does no one any good.

Casdok: Glad you liked it. I don't know how many times I've watched this clip.

Love the last dude as he nearly bounces off the seat, holding on for dear life in mid air!

Lakota Princess said...

Aww baby, do I need to tuck you in and sing you to sleep?
Come on over here and let Lakota relax you... it's the least I can do after you took such good care of me last week....

Jo said...

Isn't that what they call a weenie-shrinker? LOL! Sweat is bad enough but stranger-sweat is gagorific! Whenever I use a sauna I cover everything with towels, a lot of towels.

Jill said...

Lakota, stop stealing my lines!

REH, to help you do something through your insomenia, you've been tag!

Jen said...

this was FANTASTIC! I laughed and laughed. . . I laughed so hard I started crying. still chuckling. . .

You have to love the Japenese! They have awesome game shows where no one will turn around and sue them.

***going to watch the clip again***

Lakota Princess said...

~Crossing arms and glaring at REH~
You took good care of Jilly last week too?
Hmmph.No wonder you're not getting any sleep.

R.E.H. said...

Lakota Princess: Baby you can tuck me in anytime... how about a goodnight kiss too? That would help.

Jo: Weenie-shrinker - LOL!

No towels needed as long as they are wooden boards. Any sweat is evaporated quickly in that kind of heat.

Jill: I checked out the meme. I hate meme's but for you I'll try to squeeze than one in there at some point.

Jen: That's what I was thinking too. Over here or back home in the States... any television station who pulled that stunt would quickly find themselves in serious trouble. Why can't people just see the entertainment value here ;)

Lakota Princess (again): *blushing* Ooops... guess I've been caught. Hey, baby, I'm sorry - I didn't know our relationship was exclusive.

Lakota Princess said...

Well... it's not.
But the same week? Dude.

The least you could have done is let me watch.

Samantha_K said...

I can't watch the video, but my sauna advice? Sit on a towel. Of your own.

That is all.

R.E.H. said...

Lakota Princess: I'm so sorry. Next time - I'll let you know in advance so you can come watch, ok?

Samantha K: No towel needed as long as they are wooden boards. They are always nice and dry when I sit down... I don't want to soak my towel with my own sweat either ;)

Jill said...

Lakota, stop being jealous because REH is getting more action than you this week!

Lakota Princess said...

Jilly-girl, I'm a barbie - everyone gets more action than me EVERY week. ~rolling eyes~

R.E.H. said...

Jill: Girlfight! ;) And all over me... I kinda like it ;)

Lakota Princess: You should introduce yourself to G.I. Joe... then you're sure to get some action.

Lakota Princess said...

Have you ever yanked down the pants on a GI Joe? Sooooo not anatomically correct.

R.E.H. said...

Lakota Princess: Have you ever yanked down the pants on a Barbie? Sooooo not anatomically correct ;)

Face it... dolls are a different breed than humans ;)
