Out of sheer luck, and man was this lucky, I popped home in the middle of the day today to make lunch and grab my wallet which I had mistakenly left at home in my mad rush out of the house this morning. I turned on Ellen, which I've seen maybe once before ever, and she showed a clip from this Japanese talk show which loosely translates to "Human Tetris." Basically there are shapes and you have to try to fit through them. I have tears in my eyes from watching clips of this on YouTube. Do the groups at the end really, I mean, REALLY think they are going to get through the shapes? I would pay all the money in the world to see a show like this in the United States. With C-List stars. Oh that would be magical.
