Japanese Gameshow Live Action Super Mario Bros (VIDEO)

We all understand at this point that Japanese gameshows are weird to us, just as we're sure that grown-ups facing off against small children in a battle of wits is strange to others, but sometimes that weirdness borders on genius. This is one of those times.
