Internet loses it over Japanese game show

WHILE Australians are sitting through our umpteenth season of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Japan is showing how game shows are really done.

One of the country's latest creations to get noticed involves Lycra-clad contestants trying to scale a set of slippery stairs - and the internet is going crazy for it.

Six contestants dressed in colourful bodysuits vie for the prize at the top of the staircase while a studio audience cackles at their misfortune as they slip and fall to the bottom, often collecting their opponents on the way down.

Think Steven Bradbury's infamous 2002 Winter Olympics moment but on a particularly perilous set of stairs and the ice skaters are power rangers.

It's pretty funny, and strangely engrossing.

It appears this particular game features as part of a biannual quiz show containing a raft of different challenges and games.

But whatever it is, the world needs more of it.
