Japanese Commercial Shows A Scientist, A Runner, And A Sumo Wrestle Getting Stuck To A Bug Trap

The adverts coming out of Japan might just have hit a whole new level of weirdness.

A scientist, a runner, and a sumo wrestler walk into a room. The following three minutes and 38 seconds are the strangest three minutes and 38 seconds of their lives. Why? Because they’re in Japan and that’s just what Japan does to people. They force them into doing strange things for other people’s amusement. Like, I don’t know, making them traverse a carpet’s worth of adhesive bug catcher – for example.

This insane video, which at times is genuinely hilarious, was put together by the manufacturers of Earth Chemical cockroach traps. The premise behind it is that cockroaches are evolving all the time, and could one day be the size of human adults (hush now, don’t question it…it’s science, or something). To test its strength and prove that not even a human-sized cockroach could evade one of their traps, they took a look to see whether a scientist, a runner, or a sumo could make it all the way across. Spoiler alert. They couldn’t. Watching them try, however, is the best thing you’ll do all day.
