TV in Japan is better than TV anywhere in the world, and the 'Pepper Spray Butt Hurdle Race' is only more proof of that truth.

However, pepper spray in the runners butt is only the beginning of this butt torture race.

Why would anyone do this is probably the most obvious question here.

The answer is simple, because Japanese TV is awesome!  OK maybe that's not the answer, but honestly I don't think there is a good answer to that question.

All we can do is sit down, and uncomfortably enjoy their weirdness.
