In this viral clip from the long-running, biannual Japanese television special All-Star Thanksgiving (オールスター感謝祭), six men compete to get to the top of the stairs where a treasure awaits. The twist: The stairs are really slimy and they’re all wearing slippery competition uniforms, making for a difficult yet hilarious race to the top. It’s an amazing nine-minute clip. Who will get to the treasure first?
A quiz, competition, and variety program, All-Star Thanksgiving broadcasts in April and October on the Tokyo Broadcasting System. Japanese television clips usually disappear from YouTube, so watch it while you can.
