This Japanese Game Show Where People Get Hand Jobs While Singing Karaoke Is...I Mean, It Is What It Is, Guys — VIDEO

It must be fun to pitch ideas for TV shows in Japan. You can literally take two completely unrelated things, throw them together and BOOM!—you're on the air. For instance: "cooking" and "balancing a live cat on your head"; "Playing naked Twister" and "your grandparents"; "Re-enacting episodes of Law & Order" and "swimming in a tank of pinching crabs". You get the idea. This literally must be how Japanese game show Sing What Happens, where male contestants have to sing karaoke while getting a hand job from attractive, semi-naked women, who often use their hands but also sometimes use their feet to give sexual pleasure. TV is officially too much to handle.

Here's how the game (porno?) is played: The contestants must remember all the words to the song they're singing while being jacked off, and in order to win, must also hit all the correct notes. It seems really hard (haw, haw). The aim is to not be distracted by the hand job, and sing flawlessly through to ejaculation, which brings whole new meaning to the phrase "belting it out". Welp! It looks like the Japanese have once again raised the bar for absurd game show premises, and also given Internet writing folks like me ample opportunity to really work in some erection puns. Thanks, Japan!

Watch a weird segment from the show below. There's no nudity but I still don't think it's safe for work if you're in a professional work environment:

Meanwhile, the Japanese aren't the only ones with weird karaoke shows. Of course, we have our quirks too. Here are some more hilariously odd karaoke shows from Japan, America and elsewhere:

1. KILLER KARAOKE, where people do karaoke while being exposed to scary, bizarre and disgusting things:
