"Banzai" is also a British
TV-program, aired on Channel Four. It has a lot of similarities with wacky Japanese TV-shows.
The concept is simple. You are presented with a betting situation. The natarror explains the terms of the bet. It might be something like this: Can granma Dickingson drink a pint of sherry in less than 27 seconds. How long can the shake-hands-man shake a popstar's hand? Which floor was the Princess Di souvenier plate thrown from?
Then, if your're in a pub, you can bet with someone, or bet vodka shots at a pre-party... The answer is presented some thirty seconds after the bet is presented.
The show is quite funny in its own wacky way.
