Brazilian Game Show Where Contestants Fly Down A Waterslide & End Up Topless
Crazy game shows used to be a Japanese specialty but nowadays, countries all around the world are getting involved and the results are weirdly spectacular.
Take, for example, this balls-out-mental show from Brazil called Pânico na Band (“Panic in the Band”). In this clip, contestants race down a homemade water slide and appear to be trying to pull off the best ‘dive’ possible while flinging a toy goose into a hoop. After each dive, they are rated by some rough looking blokes on a bank.
Some poor male contestant goes first but he doesn’t stand a bloody chance when going up against such top-heavy opponents; the ladies shoot down the slide and crash into the paddling pool with a glorious ferocity, much to the joy of everyone in attendance. The busty bombers are then followed by a dwarf in a zorb ball (because, why not?) and a hefty fella in a Santa suit but they just don’t have the same watch-ability as their female co-contestants.
Alas, Pânico na Band is no more. This was the latest in a long line of questionable stunts that has landed them in hot water over the years, with the most notorious being the occasions in which a presenter donned ‘blackface’.
The first time he did so was back in 2013 while impersonating Brazilian MMA legend Anderson Silva after he lost his UFC middleweight belt.
What’s that you’re saying? Everybody makes mistakes and 2013 was a different time? Well, just to make sure it wasn’t seen as a one-off blunder, these mad fuckers did it again this year in a skit where one of them played a character called ‘The African‘ (seriously, I’m not making this shit up).
It’s a shame because this tits-out-stunt appears to be the straw that broke the camels back and got the show canned but if they didn’t put a fucking anvil on its back in the form of a blackface character, I’m sure it would still be running.
Ah well, at least we’ve got these clips to enjoy…
