Those neck injuries are so hilarious!!!
Oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck.
That is awful.
Somebody help the man!
The Japanese believe that the entertainment of the many is more important than the good of a few.
Also they are too polite to be concerned about their own well-being.

This and Takeshi's Castle lead me to believe that there is some Japanese idea that you're safe from harm if you have some muddy water to fall into.
hey lets throw more mud on his flopping head! sugoi!
for some reason, the people who try to "ham it up" the most tend to get the most pain in the end
Things utterly foreign to Japan:
2. not moving someone who may have broken his goddamn neck
3. the realization that people can't breathe in mud
although i completely agree with your comment ... this is just sad

Not really. It's not like they're 5 starring it for their viewing pleasure, then claiming moral superiority.

Your co-worker has fallen face-down into a deep puddle of mud and isn't moving. He is barely responsive. What do you do?
a) Call for help.
b) Get the off-screen ambulances and medical services.
c) Immediately carry him out of the mud and put him on his back.
d) Pile more mud on his head and laugh hysterically.

This comment is a placeholder for when I can work up the nerve and cut down the gut-wrenching sickness enough to make a joke at their entire little island's expense.

I saw no eye-lossage here. But I sure did try holding my breath for the amount of time the guy was left sucking mud...turned blue here.

No no no no no NO, I was using that old cliche as a jokey reference to unexpected trauma in general. It's like one of those things our moms always told us, you know, "don't run with scissors," "don't run next to the pool," "they're all going to laugh at you," and so forth. "Don't fall like this guy" should be up there on the list of Matriarchal Advice.
I've seen a lot of things, but I've never seen anything quite like this before. Thanks again, internet.
A little more sensitivity to the Kamikaze traditions please!

So glad that this is back up.
not anymore. then again I'm not so sure I wanted to see it anyway.
I can only imagine the horror at finding yourself face down in thick soupy mud with a broken neck, only to have your onlookers laughing and prancing and splashing you with yet more mud, but totally cool with leaving you face down in the mud until you choke.
I hate to spoil your Japan bashing, but the dude's fine. It may have been painful, but obviously not serious if he was shaking his head. That, and he didn't act like he was in pain. His face at the end expressed more of a "Yuck! Mud!" emotion than a "Jesus fuck! My neck!" emotion.
