Episode #1297 2016.03.20 - Sudden Japanese Dance Competition

ダウンタウンのガキの使いやあらへんで!!
A Japanese variety show hosted by the popular Japanese owarai duo, Downtown
This week involves the guys trying to come up with their own renditions of traditional Japanese dancing, despite not having experience in it. They will have to do their own makeup and learn the choreography by themselves.

今週のガキの使いは、いきなり日本舞踊選手権!知識、経験ともにほぼゼロの日本舞踊を演目名から想像して自分流に舞ってその上手さを競う企画。メイクも自分で施すのだが、やり方が分からずとんでもない顔に仕上がってしまう者も。肝心の舞も本人たちは真剣でできていると思っていても、足取りがおかしかったり、腹のたつ表情だったり、小道具の使い方がおかしかったりと皆一様に突っ込みどころが満載!抱腹絶倒の奇妙な舞の連続!
Ooh, this sounds like it'll be a good one even without understanding the language. :nod:
Also potentially creepy with the makeup and slow dancing. :?:
Hahahah! This is going to be good.
Next week for sure.

I don't know much Japanese but I know enough to understand the woman judge said Matsumoto's face was scary (kao ga kowai) :lol:
But it seems he won due to the variety in his performance.
And Hamada lost for falling over (I think the judge found it cute but not enough to give him a free pass).
Thank you :inlove:
What's the cultural background for this kind of dancing? Is it connected with Noh or Kabuki theater?
